Event description

Description

This course is designed to develop skills to enhance the practitioners knowledge regarding both the assessment and treatment of movement, flexibility and mobility in relation to musculoskeletal injuries and management.

In order to develop an understanding of the importance of these areas there will be discussions about the connective tissue system and its role within our conceptualisation of anatomy, the neurophysiological effects of flexibility modalities and an exploration of the numerous variables that impact range of movement. From this foundation, we can then develop a rationale for the examination and application of movement in rehabilitation and athletic development.

There will be a strong focus on practical demonstrations to allow participants to experience the effect of the movements and patterns discussed in addition to develop the competency to apply them clinically.

Case studies will also be covered to provide examples of the application of skills developed from the course to both simple and complex presentations.

The course will run over two days as follow:

Saturday, 25th May 12 - 6pm
Sunday, 26th May 10 - 4pm
