This flexible structure allows you to work towards accreditations within your own personal timeframe by building a bespoke learning programme. These modules include both theoretical and practical study to build on your current qualifications and deliver the strategies essential to change the movement efficiency in a range of environments.
Progress though our three pathways: Co-ordination Efficiency, Muscle Synergies and Masterclasses. By the end you will have the confidence and expertise to optimise movement efficiency and Movement Health.
Complete the pathways Co-ordination Efficiency, Muscles Synergies and a Masterclass to become certified as a Kinetic Control Movement Therapist.
Our ‘Co-ordination Efficiency’ modules develop the ability to apply a clinical reasoning framework in combination with movement retraining interventions guided by the application of tests of dissociation.
The courses’ blend of contemporary neuroscience, biomechanics, physiology and skill acquisition principles, benefit a wide range of clinicians and patient populations.
The courses supply a systemised approach to identifying provocative co-ordination patterns, labelling the pattern (site and direction), and addressing the issue via targeted movement retraining. Clinicians’ skillsets of observation, cueing, and clinical reasoning are developed alongside the acquisition of new tools.
If long term ‘Movement Health’ is the goal, targeting mechanisms rather than firefighting symptoms appears crucial. These course offer a clinical framework, and the skills and understanding, to support this goal
By the end of this series of courses, you will have achieved
Kinetic Control Certification: Module Co-ordination.
CO-ORDINATION EFFICIENCY TO OPTIMISE MOVEMENT RETRAINING FOR THE LOW BACK & HIP
This course is designed to help clinicians deliver targeted movement retraining, helping them to successfully manage each patient’s pain, pathology and compromised function of the low back and hip.
CO-ORDINATION EFFICIENCY TO OPTIMISE MOVEMENT RETRAINING FOR THE NECK & SHOULDER
In the presence of neck and shoulder pain, history of pain, fatigue and recurrence of symptoms changes in movement co-ordination patterns and efficiency of muscle synergies are observed. This course will give you the tools to address these changes.
MULTI-JOINT SYNERGIES IN ALIGNMENT AND COORDINATION
This course evaluates movement patterns to help change muscle function associated to pain, pathology and compromised function, helping therapists towards establishing a more optimised movement system for their patients.
Muscle Synergists: the body’s agents of action are the ‘barometers’ of Movement Health.
Kinetic Control’s ‘Muscle Synergies’ modules supply therapists with both a clinical model and the skills of assessment and retraining to address symptoms, compromised function, and recurrence. Although sharing the same clinical reasoning framework as applied within the Coordination modules, these courses focus on rating and retraining the ‘efficiency’ of muscle recruitment.
The modules harness a muscle role classification system (Comerford & Mottram, 2012) that allows muscles’ response to pain, pathology, and fatigue to be interpreted to guide retraining interventions. These courses help delegates to further develop skills of evaluation, reasoning, and retraining/cueing patients.
TARGETING MUSCLE SYNERGIES TO OPTIMISE MOVEMENT RETRAINING FOR THE LOW BACK & HIP
This module develops clinicians’ ability to exert the greatest change on their patients’ movement, chance of recurrence and function by focusing upon muscle synergies of the low back and hip.
TARGETING MUSCLE SYNERGIES TO OPTIMISE MOVEMENT RETRAINING FOR THE NECK & SHOULDER
This course is designed to help clinicians deliver targeted retraining of the muscle synergies of the neck and shoulder to manage their patients’ pain, the impact of pathology, and detriments to their quality of life.
BEYOND GLOBAL MOVEMENT CONTROL FOR PAIN & RECURRENCE
This course teaches clinicians to assess and retrain the synergists that possess a role in the management of translation deficits in patients, supplying targeted retraining strategies to manage recurrence at the neck, shoulder, hip and low back.
This is the perfect opportunity to advance to a higher level. By this stage you’ll be exploring in depth regions and topics, putting movement into your clinical expertise. There is a comprehensive series of courses for you continue developing your understanding of Kinetic Control’s clinical reasoning process and movement system expertise: assessment, retraining and integration.
The aim is to expand your horizons of clinical competence, with patient focused care and building on the clinical reasoning framework is an integral element of the programme.
MANAGING RESTRICTIONS FOR MOVEMENT EFFICIENCY AND MOVEMENT HEALTH
This masterclass presents a systemised framework to assess and manage restrictions and delivers skills of movement assessment and retraining to exert long-term change on pain, pathology and compromised function and performance
THE TAPING SOLUTION: SUPPORTING, ENHANCING AND ACCELERATING TRAINING OUTCOMES
This masterclass builds clinical and performance practitioners’ skillsets in contemporary techniques of taping, developing a strong rationale for the use of these strategies in the management of uncontrolled movement.
MANAGING MOVEMENT: SOLUTIONS FOR THE SIJ & PELVIS
This course helps clinicians to address lumbo-pelvic presentation, detailing the evaluation of movement restrictions of the pelvis and explaining the identification and individualized retraining of uncontrolled movement.
MANAGING MOVEMENT: THORACIC SPINE & RIBS
This course covers techniques to identify uncontrolled movement related to presentations of the thorax and ribs, detailing the evaluation and mobilisation of thoracic and rib presentations and exploring cognitive movement control strategies.
MANAGING MOVEMENT: IMPAIRMENTS OF THE LOWER LEG
This course supplies clinicians with a systemised framework of movement assessment and retraining to manage lower leg presentations, addressing pain, patholology and compromised function associated to movement at the knee, foot and ankle.
CLINICAL JUDGEMENT: MAKING THE BEST CLINICAL DECISIONS
Patients presenting with a chronic or recurrent pain disorder have multi-factorial competing issues to manage. This course reviews the uncontrolled movement theory, details clinical reasoning approaches and presents rehabilitation strategies.
TAKING CLINICAL MOVEMENT EXCELLENCE INTO NEW DIRECTIONS
this masterclass further refines clinicians’ skillsets to work with a diverse and challenging clinical population, drawing from contemporary research with a ‘movement-centric’ approach to the management of complex clinical presentations,
MYOFASCIAL TRIGGER POINTS FOR MOVEMENT OPTIMISATION & PAIN
This course teaches therapists to identify myofascial trigger points contributing to patients’ movement related presentations train practitioners in techniques for effectively treating these points with manual stimulation.
MYOFASCIAL TRIGGER POINTS FOR MOVEMENT OPTIMISATION & PAIN INCLUDING CHINESE THERAPY OF 'JINGJIN'
Use movement control analysis in a clinical framework to guide myofascial trigger point release to treat the source of pain, regain muscle extensibility and change recruitment thresholds to enhance movement control (including 'Jinjing' therapy)
MANAGING MOVEMENT: ELBOW, FOREARM, WRIST & HAND
This course will provide you with a complete solution for delivering movement retraining to successfully manage each patient’s pain, pathology and compromised function elbow, forearm and hand.
MOVEMENT SOLUTIONS FOR RECURRENT HAMSTRING INJURY
This course will help you to treat and manage recurrent hamstring injuries, employing the diagnosis of the potential contributing structures and mechanisms along with a clinical reasoning strategy to determine priorities in management.
MOVEMENT SOLUTIONS FOR TROCHANTERIC & LATERAL HIP PAIN
