About the Course..
The goal of this course is to reexamine the core in a more expanded role as it relates to the upper and lower extremities, and creates the foundation for kinetic linking. The creation of optimal movement relies on the ability of the core to efficiently create and transfer energy through the body to the extremities. Failure of the core to provide sufficient proximal stability will result in dysfunction and pain that can occur anywhere in the body. For these reasons, clinicians must be able to assess and treat the trunk in a way that is congruent with the movement demands from every day life to sport and athletic activities. The focus of this course is to go beyond traditional assessment and treatment strategies that emphasize isolation of the abdominal wall. Assessment and corrective strategies will highlight the importance of static and active posture, breath and breathing patterns, resting patterns, and optimizing functional movement patterns.
This course provided an interactive learning atmosphere utilizing didactic lecture, with a predominant focus on lab demonstration and active participation. Clinicians, with either limited or advanced experience with movement patterns, will be able to effectively customize and integrate the evidence-based best practices gained from this course to meet the needs of a wide variety of patients in their clinical practice.
