Description

I used to play that frustrating game of chasing the pain with rehab clients. And for years I thought I had successfully treated thousands of clients with muscle and joint pain; however, I still felt as if there was one key ingredient I was missing to maintain function in my patients.

Then I discovered a revolutionary method after using kinesiological surface electromyography (sEMG) evaluation. This resulted in a breakthrough in one session. I was able to free a borderline frozen shoulder and eliminated nearly all the patient’s pain – with sustained results.

Watch me in my experiential training, where I’ll show you 3 simple exercises that target the Central Nervous System to correct movement dysfunction and change your client’s lives permanently.

You’ll learn how to concentrate on the body’s true core and its bias – which we call the “Twist” – and discover how it leads to lasting change of improved balance, coordination, and effortless posture.

These strategies will revolutionize how you work with your clients. So sign up today and revolutionize the way you treat your patients.

NMT, sEMG Tech


David Lemke, NMT, sEMG Tech, became interested in core function as a patient with back pain. Following pain relief and functional improvement brought about by gifted and well-trained manual therapists, he began his own apprenticeship with a renowned Canadian bodyworker in 1985.

Ten years into his own practice, Mr. Lemke made a breakthrough using information from a kinesiological surface electromyography (sEMG) evaluation. His discovery: that adding a single muscle manipulation to a parascapular trigger point sequence freed a borderline frozen shoulder and eliminated nearly all the pain – with lasting results uncommon to this type of manipulation. The treatment, later described as a sequenced motor point manipulation, became the subject of studies conducted by physical therapists at Idaho State University.

Since that time, Mr. Lemke’s sEMG assessments and motor point treatments have been relied on by top performing athletes, dancers, martial artists, and those recovering from orthopedic injuries and surgeries. As a passionate interest, Mr. Lemke has enjoyed working with special education teachers treating motor coordination problems in children diagnosed with learning disabilities.

He is a Certified Dartfish Video Coach and uses slow motion video analysis of biomechanics in his clinic. Mr. Lemke’s expertise using kinesiological sEMG is well known in the field, as he has tested exercise equipment, devices, and new treatment procedures as well as trained hundreds of specialized neuromuscular massage and physical therapists.

Mr. Lemke was the primary consultant to Champions Sports Medicine (Spokane, WA) in the creation of their Biomechanics lab and consults regularly with researchers at Baylor University’s Human Motion Lab. Learn more at davelemke.us

Objectives

  1. Describe how measurable (i.e., visible) pathologies correspond with underlying muscle patterns.
  2. Connect long standing physiological principles with puzzling clinical observations.
  3. Explain the concept of dysfunctional motor patterns using long-standing physiological laws (e.g., Sherrington’s Laws, Wolff’s Law, etc.).
  4. Apply exercises which target the CNS to restore muscle inventory lost to compensation.
  5. Identify and correct defensive postural adaptation using a single integrated motion.
  6. Demonstrate movement strategies which are immediately and favorably integrated by the CNS, thus avoiding exercises which the body resists as “invasion.”

Outline

WHAT IS THE COMPLETE CORE?
The Answer Tells Us What’s the Key to Truly Functional Exercise
  • Looking deeper than what we normally consider the “core”
  • How outdated technology has impaired our definitions of the core and negatively affected our treatments
  • The lack of outcomes in the face of all the data – what’s going on?
  • Effecting what happens “before the core” for proper muscle recruitment
HANDS-ON LAB
Improve Our Treatment With Kinesiological Surface Emg (sEMG) Testing
  • 11 key movements that better informs our work with the core
  • Video and sEMG recording of test activities – what does it tell us about the body?
  • How to use the sEMG in our work as rehab professionals?
IMPLICATIONS OF CNS = CORE
What sEMG Tells Us About the Kinetic Chain
  • How the CNS sees muscles
  • Review sEMG data to observe “chains” vs. groups
  • Muscles, mood, and movement
  • CNS perspective: a chain is only as strong as its weakest link
  • Implications of CNS as CORE: Motor learning in ever activated, learning, adapting system
WHAT IS THE CORE “TWIST” AND HOW UNDERSTANDING IT IS REVOLUTIONARY TO TREATMENT
  • How the motor system is in training before you hit the gym
  • The Core “Twist” pattern as the driving force in:
    • Lower quarter symptoms – most common underlying pathologies
    • Upper quarter symptoms – most common underlying pathologies
  • Recognize how elusive the missing links are
  • Recognizing the simple elegance of functional chains
TRAINING FUNCTIONAL CHAINS
The Benefits of Exercising Out of the Twist
  • Training vs. exercise
    • Targeting the CNS with structured, resisted movement
  • Cross-training out of the Twist
  • If an exercise doesn’t counter the Twist, then it’s not reinforcing it
HANDS-ON LAB
The Exercises You’re Not Using to Enhance Posture, Balance & Coordination
  • Demo and practice exercise
    • XC Skiing, backwards resisted walking – ideal activities to counter primary overuse patterns
  • Group brainstorming: FCT demo and SkiX activity
  • Signs of success: Posture, balance, and youthful boldness
