Movement Analysis, Sub-classification, Neuromuscular Retraining for Functional Movement Control

These series of courses address the Motor Function sub-classification ( link to sub-classification category that is in ‘about us’) (Movement Pattern Control, Translation Control, Respiratory Control and Motor Fitness).

A key category of this sub-classification is the Movement Pattern Control Deficit (MPCD).  One of the most common characteristics of people who have pain is that they move differently in the region around the pain compared to people who have not had pain. This sub-classification is based on the premise that the way we move and coordinate our bodies influences tissue loading. This can lead to pain and ongoing abnormal tissue loading. There is a large body of laboratory and clinical evidence to support this.  There is also a growing body of evidence to support the use of the correction of movement and motor control in rehabilitation.

The correction of movement patterns is enhanced by understanding how normal movement actually develops (the neurodevlopmental sequence), the mechanisms that are involved in changing movement, and sensory motor function.  This leads to several different and specific targeted intervention strategies.

We have developed clear, easy to use clinical prediction rules to identify when correcting movement patterns and other aspects of motor function are appropriate. This is the key to the SMARTERehab sub-classification process.

This series of courses is suitable for musculoskeletal physiotherapists.
