Movement Control Approach: Foundations, The Activation Phase, Acquisition, and Matching Treatment to Examination Findings (Video Lectures)

$450.00

CEU’s: – You will obtain CEUs by completing and taking the onsite course, Movement Control Approach.

Counts towards: COMT & Manual Therapy Fellowship

Course Description: This course will present a contemporary approach to managing neuromuscular dysfunction.   Emphasis will be placed on integrating human biomechanics, myofascial kinetic chains and respiration enabling the clinician to utilize a multi-planar examination approach that respects multi-systems and environmental demands placed on human movement system.  Utilizing theoretical concepts as well as evidence-guided principles for examination and treatment, discussions will focus on related issues pertaining to clinical reasoning and decision making involving the whole individual, multiple systems, and tri-planar muscle and joint assessment.  The online module will present the background and foundational concepts that will be utilized to create the examination and treatment approaches that will be emphasized in the Movement Control Approach. This course includes required and supplemental readings, as well as discussion boards.
