Lumbo-Pelvic Movement Patterns & Muscle Imbalances: Sub-classification - Functional Mechanism Based Rehab


Accurate Sub-classification

Quickly predict suitable treatment. No wasting time. 

Underlying Mechanisms

Assess the reason why people have altered movement so therapy can be targeted more specifically 

Neurodevelopmental Process

See how postural and primitive reflexes can immediately change movement patterns. 

Motor Control Problem Solving

Learn how to use this universal model to help you make exercises easier or harder. 

Targeted Functional Integration

Understand how to effectively make the specific exercises for the patient 

Safe Gym Exercises

Assess the patient to provide safe exercises in the gym or in rehab without provoking symptoms 

Specific Clinical Examples for Primitive Reflexes

Clinical examples will be covered to illustrate how PR can be used for common clinical presentations. 

Pain Control

Use movement pattern control to be able to provide exercises for temporary pain control 


Learn some nice taping techniques to quickly control pain, increase movement and control movement 

Regardless of how much knowledge you have in the lumbar spine you will benefit from knowing: 

• Screening who can learn specific motor control 

exercise and correct sub-classification 

• Postural and primitive reflexes to immediately change movement patterns 

• Functional mechanisms of loss of control 

• Specific sensory motor function 

• Functional integration strategies
