The Study of Human Movement: A three-day introductory course on the relationship between postural control and functional movement. The Bobath Concept
The participant will be introduced to the analysis of movement on course participants as a basis for discussing the assessment and treatment of deviations of posture and selective movement. The information shared in this 3-day course is based on the Bobath Concept. The course will be largely practical with some formal lecture and informal discussion.
At the completion of the course the participant shall be able to:
- Recognize the importance of a problem solving approach in the assessment and treatment of movement dysfunction.
- Begin to observe and analyze human movement with reference to base of support, alignment and selective movement with respect to activity performance.
- To develop an understanding of balance with respect to predictive and reactive postural control strategies.
- Appreciate the influence of sensory information on motor output through an experience of facilitated movement.
- Begin to describe the relationship of neural and musculoskeletal plasticity to patient potential.
Course Length: 3-days, 19.5 contact hours
