MOVEMENT AND MOBILITY FUNDAMENTALS COURSE

A movement-based approach to rehab 

Optimize Academy is offering a 1 day (7 hour) course open to physical therapists, physical therapy students, trainers, and other health/rehab professionals. The goal of this course is to provide a systematic movement based approach that integrates both mobility and functional movement capacity/motor control. It will combine a global schema for assessing and treating the musculoskeletal system with specific techniques/exercises to help restore it.

The course is practical and hands-on, focusing on functional movement mechanics, mobility techniques, corrective exercises, movement-based rehab and providing a unique approach to musculoskeletal care. We developed this course after identifying a significant void in the quality, effectiveness, and consistency of movement based rehab in our field. 

Topics to be covered:

  • Mobility and movement screens, assessments, and standards for all populations.
  • Restoring mobility. The Big 3: Hips, Ankles and Thoracic Spine.
  • How to effectively assess and teach fundamental human movements such as the squat, hinge, lunge etc.
  • Assessing core integrity. Effective core stability and strengthening techniques.
  • Breathing assessment and improving breathing mechanics.
  • Upper and Lower body stability training (hip and shoulder focused).
  • Kettlebell and loaded exercises for rehab and training purposes.
  • Functional biomechanics of the body and how to restore them (myofascial slings).
  • Foot health, strength, and function. Rebuilding the arch.
  • The joint by joint approach to rehab.
  • An introduction to primitive neurodevelopmental patterns to correct movement and get the body working as a unit.
