Much attention has been given in recent years to the development, maintenance and decline of functional stability of the locomotor system. Indeed, emerging research has proven the existence of the deep, or core, stabilizing system and its impact in controlling safe joint motion. This is especially true for the joints of the spinal column, where the complexity of the biomechanical and neuro-physiological demands is phenomenal.
With the increased understanding of functional stability have arisen new theories regarding etiology of functional pathology and effective treatments methods to restore stability.
Unfortunately, these techniques have yielded less than satisfactory results for many frustrated clinicians.
It is during this period that a new method of intrinsic locomotor system stabilization has arisen to dramatically gain the attention of manual therapy and rehabilitation specialists. Pavel Kolar has spawned a new manual approach to activate the intrinsic spinal stabilizing system and achieve exciting levels of improved function in a remarkably brief period. Pavel has expanded the scope of clinical options in an exciting new direction. Attendees will be introduced to these methods.
In this course you will learn:
the relationship between developmental kinesiology, ontogenesis, and stabilization of the spine, trunk and pelvis
Intrinsic spinal stabilization tests and techniques to activate the IS
Treatment of functional pathology of the locomotor system, vertebrogenic and radicular pain syndromes where stabilization of the spine plays a crucial role.
Knowledge and Skills You Will Learn at DNS:
1. The principles of developmental kinesiology
2. Development through the first year of life as it relates to stabilization of the spine, breathing and functional joint centration, and development of the phasic movements coupled with trunk rotation.
3. The relationship between neuromaturation and adult locomotor system pathology.
4. Functional stabilization of the spine.
5. Posture - from a neuro-developmental perspective.
6. Correction of poor stereotypes of respiration.
7. The key principles of locomotion: locomotor patterns, stepping forward and support function, support and stimulation zones.
8. Skills to evaluate the deep stabilizing system of the spine.
9. The most important techniques used in the treatment of the deep stabilization system of the spine utilizing the principles of reflex locomotion.
10. Treatment of many neurological, orthopedic and pediatric conditions.
