Struggling to understand why your patients’ muscles get so stiff and difficult to move following neurological damage or disease such as stroke, head injury, multiple sclerosis or Parkinson’s disease? If your answer is …. Yes I do! ….. then this course will help you to better understand aspects of why this happens, and how this happens, and then help you to make a significance difference to your patients’ movement control for them to achieve better function.

A course designed for non-qualified therapy staff.

LEVEL 1 Overview

This course, delivered in a friendly, interesting and understandable way, will introduce the student to the importance and relevance of aspects of functional anatomy, muscle physiology and fascia in their daily work with patients.

Level one, although largely theoretical, will include numerous practical aspects and relevant clinical examples along the way in order to enable the student to apply their new learning in day-to-day therapy sessions with patients.

Level 1 can ‘stand alone’, providing the student with a wealth of information which will inform their day- to- day rehabilitation of patients. It will also provide a firm foundation for the student to move to level 2 where their theoretical learning will be applied in a practical manner, so providing an increased breadth and depth of understanding of the influence of functional anatomy, muscle physiology and fascia on movement control.

    Course Aims

    • To provide the student with an overview of how anatomy and connective tissue function for movement control
    • To provide the student with an assessment structure that will enable them to identify when a patient has compromised movement due to aspects of poor anatomical or connective tissue control or alignment
    • To provide the student with the theoretical foundation for practical exploration of the influence of poor anatomical alignment or negative connective tissue changes.

    CPD: 7.5 Hours
