Unit A – Outline

Module 1

Lumbo pelvic stability / patient subgrouping / functional stability

We begin with the history behind this concept becoming one of todays most discussed approaches to injury management. An in depth review of the ever changing research clarifies differences from traditional approaches.

Matwork & equipment based reformer exercises are linked to facilitation of stability control, creating a concentrated “core” of 30 exercises.

Clinical applications and pathology management module 1 introduces you to:-

  • patient subgrouping
  • functional stability tests
  • setting heterogenous/patient specific programmes
  • identifying & setting treatment outcome predictors
  • differentiating motor control from pathology
  • using exercises as treatment tools
  • using exercises as clinical tests
  • differentiation of radiological findings
  • differential diagnosis tools – is it function or structure?
  • gaining effective patient compliance
  • case studies to identify patient subgroups and clinical pathway development
