This is NOT JUST another course telling you movement is important or showing you some new exercises but a course about PEOPLE and how to actually apply movement and exercise to them in a systematic and informed way. You could describe it as clinical reasoning for exercise and rehab!

Many therapists struggle taking modern academia around pain and movement and translate it into practical application. This course will outline how to simply apply both physical & cognitively driven components for a therapeutic approach based around HUMANS rather than simply their structures. Functional Therapeutic Movement is a course designed to truly encompass a top down (cognitive) and a bottom up (physical movement) based approach to therapy.

For the first time, in addition to the lower limb, we are also including a look at Lower Back Pain movement and exercise strategies based on the best current evidence AND the person in front of you!

Using modern models of pain and movement science and research, learn how to positively frame individual movement assessment (based around relevant tasks), exercise prescription and improve your patients self management for improved compliance and consistent with a modern multifactorial understanding of pain and rehab.

Learn how to create rehab programs incorporating important factors such as:

Relevance (both physically and mentally)
Positively framed
Personalised dosage and adherence strategies
These elements can often be missing from rehab programs and a potential reason why many fail.

Group learning tasks, interactive case studies and practical movement aspects will provide a unique learning experience rather than a traditional classroom environment.
