Description

Core function is the apex of all functional movement, yet the “core” is one of the most misunderstood terms in therapy, medicine, and athletics.

With this robust approach that is centered on functional stability and mobility, you’ll re-define the “core” and explore a powerful new array of clinical tools that accelerate outcomes.

Filled with techniques for transverse, sagittal, and frontal planes, these evidence-based strategies apply to patients of all ages and abilities. As you highlight neuro-muscular re-education, you’ll learn how to:

  • Utilize the optimal contraction sequence for functional activities in supine, seated and standing
  • Integrate standardized assessments that address core weakness and dysfunctional movement patterns
  • Expertly transition from assessment to treatment
  • Create activities and exercises for patients of all abilities
  • Maximize reimbursement with best practices for billing and documentation

Through a series of interactive labs, this comprehensive training will ensure mastery and confidence to implement these concepts into your practice the very next day. With broad applications from sit to stand, bed mobility, fall risk reduction and improvement of low back pain, to accelerating outcomes of elite athletes – you cannot miss this powerful training!

Objectives

  1. Investigate missing components of broadly used definitions of the core and how this leads to clinical misunderstanding and lack of evidence when treating core dysfunction.
  2. Evaluate the core with a functional emphasis using transverse, sagittal, and frontal planes with stability, mobility, and functional emphasis.
  3. Demonstrate the evolution of contraction for stabilization of the core and spine.
  4. Appraise standardized evaluations used to evaluate core weakness and stability.
  5. Distinguish evidence-based core activities and exercises emphasizing the re defined core that promote stability and mobility in supine, seated, and standing.
  6. Demonstrate dynamic core activities during labs to develop an evolutionary plan of care and to promote functional outcomes.
