Aspects of Functional Anatomy, Muscle Physiology and Fascia as they relate to the Individual with Neurological Damage or Disease (Level 2) - FOR NON-QUALIFIED THERAPY STAFF

23rd May 2022

A course designed for non-qualified therapy staff.

Using a friendly and non-threatening teaching style, level 2 will build on the knowledge gained in level 1. This level 2 course will introduce more practical elements, enabling the student to explore and assess the effects of influencing anatomy, muscles and aspects of the connective tissue system to improve an individual’s movement, range, pattern and control.

This level 2 course will explore learning through the use of interactive and fun practical sessions, clinical examples and tutor led workshops to enhance learning of new skills that can be subsequently applied in daily clinical practice.

All treatment techniques taught and practically explored will be appropriate for non-qualified therapy staff.

 

Aims

• To provide the student with an understanding of some of the systems that cause muscle stiffness and how to influence them.

• To provide the student with an increased depth of knowledge of functional anatomy, muscle physiology and fascia.

• To provide the student with an opportunity to explore practical techniques to alter connective tissue integrity, muscle alignment and function.

 

Learning Outcomes

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.

• Able to better 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.

• Able to recognise and assess the negative influence of poor positioning on movement potential and control.

• Able to understand the importance of not mobilising ‘stiff’ tissues or body parts without an understanding of the underlying reasons for the stiffness.

 

    Who will Benefit

    Level 1 Aspects of Functional Anatomy, Muscle Physiology and Fascia as they relate to the individual with Neurological damage or disease is a pre-requisite for level 2.
