Functional Science meets Ancient Wisdom
This course will introduce you to the new perspective on Movement as practiced by the world's leading authorities in Corrective Exercise, Performance Training and Rehabilitation. You will be equipped with functional movement wisdom that is essential for understanding movement dysfunction, chronic pain and injury, as well as for developing sustainable performance.
You'll learn about the difference between Anatomical Science and Functional Science, and why a focus on movement pattern quality rather than isolated joint/muscle function, is key to the proactive intervention of injury, addressing causes of pain and injury and facilitation of optimal performance.
In this 2 day intensive and practical course, Kobus will further teach you of the Fundamentals for Movement Integrity, the universal Principles of Movement, as well as share secrets of Corrective Exercise Programming from his rich experience as Movement Specialist.
An overview of using the FMS as a means for a functional baseline to all pre-conditioning and post rehabilitation programming will be provided, with a detailed look at 2 movement patterns (Shoulder Mobility and the Active Straight Leg Raise). The practical part of the course will teach exclusive correctives for common movement dysfunctions/limitations, as well as demonstrate the complete corrective path with specific interventions for two Movement Patterns.
The course is aimed to benefit Physical/ Physiotherapists, Sports Massage Therapists, Chiropractors, Body Workers, Biokineticists, and Sports-, or Movement Trainers. Any clinician or fitness professional hungry to learn more about the latest in Functional Movement Science, and advance their knowledge of faulty movement patterns and corrective exercise.
This is the future of individualized training and rehabilitation. If you strive towards excellence in your practice this course is for you!
