Movement Specialist Certification

Program Information

Objectives

  1. Identify the role of neuromuscular movement assessment.
  2. Assess conscious(cortical) and unconscious(cerebellar) proprioception testing for the patient/client as it relates to human movement.
  3. Compare and contrast the difference between mobility restrictions and neuro/somatic restrictions (Brain vs.Tissue).
  4. Integrate the “3 Movement Pillars” and how they relate to human movement control and performance (Brain (Neurological/Psychological), Midline, Mechanical).
  5. Evaluate movement assessment techniques to identify faulty motor patterns in fundamental movements (e.g.squatting).
  6. Critique and demonstrate proper use of compression floss bands, foam rollers, kinesiology tape (as a motor control tool) and mobility balls for movement limitations.
  7. Screen and develop movement with the use of exercise bands, agility and conditioning equipment as well as body weight correctives with appropriate progressions and regressions.
  8. Integrate the use of digital motion analysis to objectively capture human movement.

Outline

Movement Specialist Certification: Conscious Movement


3 Pillars to Human Movement 
Brain (Neurological/Psychological), Midline (Fascia), and Mechanical (Motor Movement)

Screening concepts, and highlight evidence supporting selected screening approaches for the three movement zones of the body.

Subconscious Movement: A Dynamic Systems Approach to Breathing and Gait Analysis

Advanced Movement Specialist Certification

Program Information

Objectives

  1. Examine the role of neuromuscular movement assessment.
  2. Assess automatic/unconscious awareness of human movement (breathing and gait)by screening the balance and coordination systems.
  3. Compare and contrast the difference between mobility restrictions – neural vs. somatic restrictions (Brain vs Tissue).
  4. Integrate the “3 Movement Pillars” and how they relate to human movement control and performance (Brain (Neurological/Psychological), Tissue, Mechanical).
  5. Demonstrate movement assessments that identifies the ability to associate and dissociate segments of the body as they relate to gait/breathing movement patterns.
  6. Apply, practice and employ corrective strategies that involve the ability to associate (integrate) and dissociate (mobilize) different segments of the body.
  7. Critique and demonstrate proper use of compression floss bands, foam rollers and mobility balls for movement limitations.
  8. Develop and appraise movement with the use of exercise bands, agility and conditioning equipment as well as body weight correctives with appropriate progressions and regressions.
  9. Introduce and integrate the use of digital motion analysis to objectively capture human movement.
