Description

There is no ‘one size fits all’ to human movement, rather there are many ‘human shapes’ that can accomplish the same movement goals.

More important than stereotypic standards and measurements to ‘ideal’ movements we can provide a more COMPLETE strategy to movement screening by looking at the complete person, their environment and their unique ‘parts’.

FMT Movement Specialist Advanced is designed to help health and fitness professionals learn safe, simple, and effective tactics to screen, assess and address performance of ‘subconscious’movement. Attendees will learn multiple screens and assessments alongside multiple corrective strategies to influence the ‘subconscious’ movements of breathing and gait.

This course offers an evidence-based, functional framework that health and fitness professionals can use to assess and intervene in patients and clients with subconscious movement dysfunction. Topics such as cognitive awareness, neurological, midline and mechanical control and tactical intervention will be discussed and practiced. Lab experiences will include assessment, practice and corrective techniques that will be immediately actionable by students after completion of this training course.

These courses are intended for health and fitness professionals with all levels of prior movement screening experience. All supplies needed for the course and lab experiences are provided.

Functional Movement Training (FMT) courses are taught by industry leading experts in movement assessment, performance and rehabilitation. CEUs may be offered for DC, ATC, PT, LMTs, LAc, OTs and personal trainers. If your profession & state is unavailable, we do not currently offer CEUs – however, we are continually adding additional licenses.

Learning Objectives

  • Evaluate and assess the influence of subconscious capacity on simple human movement patterns.
  • Introduce and evaluate breathing screening and assessment strategies.
  • Integrate breathing screening/assessment results into corrective programming tactics.
  • Compare and contrast methods of coordination and balance assessments as they relate to subconscious movement patterns (Target Movement = Walking Gait).
  • Identify and analyze midline control dysfunction in respect to gait and breathing.
  • Evaluate and justify differences between joint association vs dissociation.
  • Critique and demonstrate gait retraining efforts with a variety of exercise mobility/motor control tools.
  • Critique and demonstrate breathing retraining efforts with a variety of exercise mobility/motor control tools.

Course Procedure

This course is 6 hours in length and a 30 Question multiple choice quiz will be required after completing the course to receive your CEU certificate. A 70% test score is required to pass and receive CEUs. The quiz can be open book and unlimited attempts on the quiz are allowed.
