A course designed for qualified therapy staff.
LEVEL 3 Part A & Part B Overview
Level 3 (A) and level 3 (B) are only open to student who have already completed levels 1 and 2.
The level 3 courses will use the knowledge gained in levels 1 and 2. The level 3 courses will be practical throughout, thus giving the student the opportunity to gain hours of ‘hands on’ experience.
Level 3 (A) will focus on treatment techniques as they relate to aspects of the upper and lower limbs.
Level 3 (B) will focus on treatment techniques as they relate to the thorax, lumbar region, abdomen, head and neck.
Students attending level 3 courses will be expected to have a good working knowledge of the anatomy of the body areas that are to be explored.
The level 3 courses will explore learning through the use of interactive practical sessions with clinical examples. Tutor led workshops will be used to enhance the refining of clinical reasoning skills that can be subsequently applied in daily clinical practice.
The student numbers on level 3 courses will be limited to 12 to facilitate the opportunity for tutor interaction during practical sessions.
• To provide the student with an opportunity to gain more hands on experience in treatment techniques with guidance and support from the tutor.
• To provide the student with an increased depth of practical knowledge of functional anatomy, muscle physiology and fascia as they relate to the individual with neurological damage or disease.
• To provide the student with an opportunity to explore practical techniques to alter connective tissue integrity, muscle alignment and so improve function and movement control through peer feedback.
By the end of the course the student will be:
• Able to apply treatment techniques learnt, to positively influence movement control, using clear clinical reasoning.
• Better able to assess the difference between movement stiffness due to joint restrictions, muscle mal-alignment or connective tissue dysfunction.
• Able to alter muscle and associated connective tissue to create alignment changes that will reduce stiffness and increase range of movement in the identified body parts.
• Able to understand the importance of appropriate postural control to facilitate enhanced therapeutic results.
• Able to immediately apply practical techniques learnt into their daily patient interactions and treatment sessions.
• Able to have a deeper understanding of the importance of not mobilising ‘stiff’ tissues or body parts without first specifically identifying the likely underlying causes.
Levels 1 and 2 Aspects of Functional Anatomy, Muscle Physiology and Fascia as they relate to the individual with Neurological damage or disease are pre-requisites for level 3.
