NKT Mobility and Assessment is designed for all NKT practitioners looking to incorporate a thorough movement screen and corrective exercises into their clinical practices. This course delves deep into the intricacies of motor control and joint alignment, enabling students to combine their NKT findings with effective movement solutions.
Participants will learn a diverse range of techniques aimed at identifying movement restrictions, building strength and creating new neural pathways. They will engage in practical demonstrations, case studies and interactive exercises to reinforce their understanding of the NKT M&A principles. By honing their skills in assessment and corrective exercise interventions, NKT practitioners will be able to deliver more comprehensive treatments and enhance patient outcomes and satisfaction.
Day 1: Assessment
9:00am – 10:00am – Lecture
What is NKT Mobility and Assessment? Why is a proper movement assessment important for clinical results? How do we increase motor unit recruitment and correct faulty motor patterns?What is skill acquisition and what are the 3 stages of motor learning? Introduction to Joint Alignment and Motor Control Technique. Movement variability vs. joint alignment. Is one better than the other? Isometrics and repetitions for joint health and motor control creation.
