The Movement Optimization for Prehab and Performance is an online course offered to health professionals who wish to develop a comprehensive functional rehabilitation approach rooted in clinical strategies that focus on injury prevention and performance. This comprehensive course will provide you with principles to effectively assess and identify movement dysfunction as well as strategies, means and methods to build an intervention based on specific outcomes.

This course is divided into 5 sections and include case studies and quiz.

SECTION 1: FUNDAMENTAL THEORIES AND CLINICAL CONCEPTS FOR MOVEMENT OPTIMIZATION

1.1 FUNDAMENTAL THEORIES

  • Posture: Discuss basic postural assessment and how the principles of muscle facilitation and inhibition provide a perspective on imbalance and functional instability.
  • The Joint-by Joint Theory: Review Cook & Boyle’s Joint-by Joint Theory to understand the relationship between structure and function.

1.2 CLINICAL CONCEPTS

  • Joint Clearing: Discuss how this clinical approach can be modified for the coach’s scope of practice and integrated into an assessment of the kinetic chain of dysfunction.
  • Homework and reprogramming: Discuss the importance of frequency in creating an adaptive response and approaches to consider in ensuring client attendance.

SECTION 2: MOBILITY AND STABILITY

2.1 CONTINUUM: Understanding the relationship between mobility, stability and engine control

2.2 ARTICULAR DISSOCIATION: Understand the importance of joint dissociation as a fundamental ability for mobility and stability.

2.3 VERSUS PASSIVE ACTIVE MOVEMENT AMPLITUDE: Discuss passive versus active amplitude to assess and differentiate soft tissue and motor control limitations.

SECTION 3: MOBILISATION – ACTIVATION – INTEGRATION: THE CORE STRATEGY

3.1 MOBILIZATION

  • Define the objectives of the mobilization sequence as a means of creating space for optimal movement capacity
  • Identify the limiting factors for optimal movement and strategies to address them.

3.2 ACTIVATION

  • Define the objectives of the activation sequence as a means of creating awareness for optimal movement control
  • Identify factors contributing to optimal movement and strategies to correct and improve them

3.3 INTEGRATION

  • Define the objectives of the integration sequence as a means of creating behaviour for optimal motion sequencing
  • Determine appropriate exercise choices to minimize compensation and maximize performance in the context of dysfunction

SECTION 4: FUNCTIONAL ASSESSMENT 

4.1 THE CORE

  • Breathing: Anatomy, Assessment and Intervention: Understand the mechanisms of proper breathing, assess dysfunctional breathing and select interventions to improve breathing.
  • Core Function: Assessment: Understand the link between the core and the shoulder and hip complexes to create stability.

4.2 LE PIED

Anatomy, Assessment and Intervention: Understand the appropriate mechanisms of the foot, assess dysfunction and select interventions to improve proprioception and stability.

4.3 THE HIP COMPLEX

  • Review of Hip Function: Examine the lumbo-pelvic complex, lumbar spine, hip joint mobility, and sacroiliac joint and their contribution to optimal hip function.
  • Myths and preconceptions about the hip complex
    Assessment of soft tissue limitations: Learn and apply 5 tests to identify soft tissue limitations.
  • Joint Clearing: Learn and apply 5 tests to evaluate the joint range of motion of the regions above and below the hip complex.

4.4 THE SHOULDER COMPLEX

  • Review of shoulder function: Examine the scapulothoracic joint, scapular crossover syndrome, cervical spine, mobility of the thoracic spine and shoulder and their contribution to optimal shoulder function.
  • Myths and preconceptions about the shoulder complex
    Assessment of soft tissue limitations: Learn and apply 5 tests to identify soft tissue limitations.
  • Joint Clearing: Learn and apply 5 tests to evaluate the joint range of motion of the regions above and below the hip complex.

SECTION 5: MOTION OPTIMIZATION INTERVENTION

5.1 GENERAL PARAMETERS

  • Configure the mobilization, activation and integration sequences and understand how to select the parameters.
  • Apply mobilization, activation and integration exercises for the shoulder and hip complexes.
  • Use the information from the evaluation to select the most appropriate exercises and parameters for mobilization, activation and integration.

5.2 PROGRAMMING

  • Review and redefine warm-up objectives
  • Review the programming strategies for the intervention:
  • Movement Optimization for training preparation and Integrated
  • Movement Optimization for movement priming.
  • Design a motion optimization intervention based on a current case study (using information collected in the previous sections)
