Contemporary models of movement dysfunction; assessment of movement that may contribute to musculoskeletal pain; concept of uncontrolled movement within translational and physiological range of motion (cervical, shoulder girdle and lumbar-pelvic regions); analysis and application of motor control assessment emphasizing the differences between low threshold and high threshold recruitment processes; diagnosis and classification of motor control changes associated with pain and uncontrolled motion; strategies for facilitation of motor control retraining; treatment for the correction of spinal and shoulder girdle movement dysfunction; developing existing skills of motor control rehabilitation; clinical reasoning to prioritise the choice of exercise in motor control retraining of movement dysfunction; Critical evaluation of research in the above areas
Module Learning Outcomes/Objectives:
- Analyse the concept of movement dysfunction.
- Justify the need to examine for movement dysfunction
- Relate patient’s symptoms to the presenting disability and dysfunction of movement.
- Plan, implement and modify motor control treatment programmes according to the analysis and interpretation of assessment findings.
- Critically appraise the contemporary models of the management of movement dysfunction using motor control.
