Integrated Patterning – Calgary 2018

September 29 @ 8:00 am - September 30 @ 5:00 pm PDT

$799

Course Description

Scientific research is a moving target, but within that construct one truism remains – movement-based problems require movement-based solutions. The Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA) allows doctors, therapists and trainers to determine the exact nature of dysfunctional movement patterns by assessing altered motor control – the inability to coordinate proper movements. This system allows us to identify the correct problems - mobility versus motor control – to best equip clinicians for a successful outcome. While Integrated Patterning uses the SFMA classifications as the structure framework for our system, prior knowledge of the SFMA is not required. Note that we do not grant certification in the SFMA.

Using evidence informed protocols, Integrated Patterning teaches participants to correct movement deficits using:

  • Myofascial/soft tissue therapy
  • Active mobility
  • Movement competency exercises
  • Capacity exercises

Integrated Patterning uses movement-based soft tissue passes focusing on identifying and treating Neurodensification Points (ND Points) to promote fascial chain plasticity and eliminate the passive restrictions to movement. All the requisite points that govern connective tissue tension can be scanned within 1-2 minutes. Next, we teach active mobility drills to further imprint new ranges of motion and gain proper articular motion. This is followed by corrective exercises designed to build movement competency and establish a normal movement pattern, Finally, we teach exercises to create capacity so that the athlete/patient can have competent movement patterns to match their demands.

Who should take Integrated Patterning?

  • Chiropractors
  • Physiotherapists
  • Athletic Therapists
  • Strength and conditioning coaches
  • Osteopaths
  • Personal trainers
  • Massage therapists
  • Facial stretch therapists

FAQ

Is Integrated Patterning a technique?

Integrated Patterning is a technique, however it more closely resembles a strategy in that it is a combination of various therapeutic inputs (manual, active mobility, and corrective exercises) to correct movement patterns.

What is "Integrated" in this course?

Integration in the sense that we are integrating different modalities (manual, active mobility, corrective exercise), and integrating anatomical regions to perform a full movement pattern (for instance, a squat). Integrated is also how this course integrates with our other courses in a system.

What is so important about patterns?

Patterns and sequences are how all biological structures are organized. Nothing occurs in isolation. As humans we have mastered the art of compensatory movement. The issue with compensation is that a sequence no longer has the correct movement occurring at certain joints (some are increased while others are decreased) and our soft tissues now have to perform differently based on these new areas of articular motion. Increased and inappropriate demand leads to an accumulation of damage which culminates in pathology (tendon injury, joint synovitis, repetitive strain). Treating the the area of pain will not resolve the mechanism that lead to injury - that is what Integrated Patterning does. It finds the pathomechanics of atraumatic injuries.

What makes this method different than others?

We use the SFMA as a framework as it is the most widely used and easily implemented movement assessment system. This allows you to share information between practitioners by speaking the common vernacular of SFMA. You do not need prior experience with SFMA to attend or make use of the information learned in Integrated Patterning - we will teach you everything you need to know. (Certification in SFMA is not provided by attending Integrated Patterning. )

Will we be doing manual therapy?

Yes, but it is not mandatory if you are not permitted. You can show your patients/clients where they can roll, or where you can use a soft tissue mobility tool or percussive device if you would rather not, cannot, perform the manual therapy component.

Is this course Evidence Based?

Yes it is. When forward-thinking/novel techniques utilize evidence it is often basic sciences research, which Integrated Patterning relies upon heavily. Our reference list is provided in your manual. Privately owned techniques/systems are rarely if ever the subject of randomized trials.

About the Instructor

Dr. Pajaczkowski holds Baccalaureate degrees with Cum Laude honors in Life Science from Queen’s University and Human Anatomy from the National University of Health Science, and a Doctorate in Chiropractic, graduating as the Valedictorian with Summa Cum Laude. He completed a two-year post-doctorate residency in sports medicine, a three-year post-doctorate course in orthopedic rehabilitation and a two-year study in acupuncture.

He is an Active Release Techniques (ART)® Seminar Lead Instructor and Director of Spine, Associate Professor at the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College, member of the Performance Care Team for the Hamilton Tiger-Cats Football Club, Team Doctor for Team Canada Standing Amputee Ice Hockey, and Sports Performance Care provider at Toronto Golf Club. He was part of the core medical team for the Toronto Phantoms Arena Football Team, in addition to the Toronto Italia, Oakville Blue Devils, and Hamilton Thunder Canadian Professional Soccer League Clubs; the Vaughan Vipers and North York Rangers Jr. A hockey teams; Canadian Soccer Association Men’s Olympic team and Ontario Provincial Boys and Girls Soccer teams (U12-U19).

Dr. Pajaczkowski was chosen as part of the core medical team for the 25th Anniversary Ironman Championships in Kona, Hawaii, and served as the medical advisor for Bentley Performance Coaching, McGuire Hockey School and Hardcore Hockey. He has been a consultant with the Toronto Maple Leafs, and was the only chiropractor chosen by the Olympic Committee for the Canada Games in the Yukon. He also has a vast amount of experience at patient care level with football at the amateur, collegiate and professional (NFL, NBA, NHL, CFL, AFL and NFC) level, in addition to numerous Olympic and Paralympic sports, hockey, soccer, volleyball, tennis, marathon, track and field, and triathlon. He has authored chapters in sports medicine textbooks, as well as articles in various peer-reviewed journals in addition to being a reviewer himself. Dr. Pajaczkowski has been fortunate enough to lecture throughout North America and Europe at various scientific conferences in addition to teaching Integrated Seminar Series.
