Born to Move: Functional Links - Upper Girdle

From Born to Move’s highly regarded Functional Assessment course, comes a series of special one-day events to introduce you to these clinically relevant practical skills.  

Assess the whole. Find the cause. Predict the outcome.

The consensus from the evidence is clear, impairments from elsewhere of the body may contribute to the reported symptoms. And key to this is they don’t have to be adjacent. As a result of this interconnected certainty, we often don’t know where to start. 

This course shows you how to remove the guesswork and consistently identify the cause(s) of symptoms presented by your client. 

Together we explore using examples you will readily recognise from your own clinical practice to demonstrate Born to Move’s underlying principles of assessing, treating, and training each individual individually.

The focus for the workshop is the upper girdle, ribs, spine, clavicle and scapula, however, the reality is contextual. We consider the wider picture of human movement in the real world, where gravity, momentum and ground force reaction influence every action we take.

Move from a postural model towards assessing function.

Move from an isolated orthopaedic model to use a system that is accurate and predictive.

We will show you how understanding real-life biomechanical principles will help you assess any movement, for any body.

This course is supported by research and clinical experience. It will gives you a four dimensional appreciation of functional anatomy. A truly enjoyable and fascinating day of practical hands on assessment, treatment and training.

Learning objectives:

  • Find the cause(s) of symptoms 
  • Describe posture and movement with a non-judgemental descriptive language
  • Ask better questions
  • Use outcome prediction to avoid abreactions to treatment
  • Learn to use the biomechanics of the ribs, spine, clavicle and scapula
