Recent Regional Interdependence research has shown a clear correlation between hip limitation and low back pain; the hips need to be mobilized in one or more directions to reduce lumbar hypermobility stresses. Sometimes the hips themselves are unstable; trochanteric pain syndromes, femuro-acetabular impingements, hip replacements and deteriorating labrums need to be stabilized. Because of the complex regional inter-relationships in this area and the repetitive and unconscious nature of human movement, muscle strengthening alone does not guarantee stability. Nor does it force a change in the habitual and sub-optimal movement and postural patterns that created the instability in the first place.
This course goes beyond strengthening the muscles to teaching integrated movement patterns that simultaneously elicit core muscle activation, stretch and strengthen relevant hip muscles, facilitate proprioceptive self-awareness and teach posture and body mechanics optimization. Carrying forward aspects of current Static Integration principles but progressing to something more life-like, we can borrow from selected aspects of Dynamic Integration movement systems to improve patient compliance, outcomes and extrapolation to daily activities. Feldenkrais® and Tai Chi are exercise systems that embody the principle of Specific Motor Control Exercise; making exercise informative and functional.
Come to this course and move; do, observe and analyze movement in a fun and interactive environment while learning immediately applicable clinical skills.
Upon completion of this course, the participants will be able to
PT, PTA, OT, OTA, ATC (comfortable clothes to allow for movement during lab portions) Bring yoga mat or pad to be on the floor + 2 bath towels. Bring yoga blocks if they have them.
