Official Kinetic Control
Alex - Egypt
Block 1: 14-17 November, 2023
Block 2: 5-8 December, 2023
Master class: 28-29 December, 2023
What will I learn in these two blocks?
Key learning outcomes are:
Practice the application of the cognitive motor control testing (CMCT) within the kinetic control reasoning framework (site & direction of uncontrolled movement).
Deal with the different muscle classifications through targeted muscle testing, activation retraining for global stabilizer muscle and/ or increase extensibility if global mobilizer muscles.
Display options integrated interventions with movement retraining (e.g., lumbo-pelvic stabilization, deep neck flexor activation, scapular stabilization, rotator cuff activation) & a variety of handson practical interventions to alter the pain mechanisms associated to their patients ‘related dysfunctions.
Evaluates movement patterns to help change muscle function associated to pain, pathology, and compromised function.
Relate muscle synergy recruitment patterns to pain, recurrence and compromised function & gain the ability to assess and retrain muscle synergy efficiency.
Identify how assessment, analysis and retraining of alignment and posture and their relationship with movement to reduce pain, the impact of pathology and improve function.
Develops clinicians’ teaching and cueing skillset of their patients’ movement patterns to influence muscle function associated with pain, pathology and compromised function.
Demonstrate the ability to assess and retrain impairments in the local stabilizer role system related to a patient’s risk of recurrence & translation dysfunctions (e.g., recurrent dislocations, spondylolisthesis, clicking & clucking)
Demonstrate an ability to employ a clinical reasoning framework to identify why some patients require this approach and when.
Demonstrate enhances skills of cueing and recruitment facilitation for better management of chronic symptoms and recurrences).
