Movement Analysis, Sub-classification and Neuromuscular retraining for the person with Neurological deficits: A) Trunk and Shoulder Girdle

Movement function and dysfunction is complex. For physiotherapists interested in restoring movement control in a client with disability or with pain it is essential to understand the strategies used by the CNS to control movement and the interrelationships between all four components of the movement system. These include the local and global muscle systems, the passive restraint systems, the connective tissue components and the central and peripheral neural systems. This course introduces the concept of dynamic stability and movement dysfunction within the human musculo-skeletal system based on extensive evidence and research literature to date. A systematic and logical approach is presented which aims to make your assessment of the client’s disability much more specific and precise. The practical sessions focus on finding and diagnosing of region and mechanism of uncontrolled movements, and a problem solving approach is applied to designing a person- specific and functionally relevant rehab programme. This rehab programme is taken to its full completion on the follow-up course, part B, once you have consolidated and practiced these important initial skills in your clinic. Both Parts A & B are very interactive courses with practical and functional integration of stability retraining concepts into your management of the neuro client.

Suggested Pre-course Preparation:
A revision of the anatomy of the lumbo-pelvic and the shoulder girdle muscles is advised.
