The Key Moves® is a system of natural movement which offers a fresh perspective on tailoring movement therapy for rehabilitating spinal pain disorders - and many ubiquitous ‘injuries’. The approach deconstructs movement to help you both clarify spinal movement ‘faults’ – and reintroduce important basic patterns of healthy control which restore the client’s function.
This series of practical hands-on workshops are suitable for multidisciplinary movement therapists (e.g. physiotherapy, yoga, Pilates, personal trainer) – and also manual therapists (physiotherapists, osteopaths, chiropractors and bodyworkers) who would like to improve their understanding of the ‘Fundamental Patterns of Control’ which underlie healthy spinal function – and how these are deficient in people with spinal pain and many other common musculoskeletal pain disorders.
These workshops will help you to identify changes in movement patterns that cause or are related to spinal pain, and provide you with a series of exercises you can use to help your clients move out of pain and improve their function. The workshops can also help to shed light on why you the therapist may be suffering from pain and ‘injuries’ yourself!
The Key Moves® Therapeutic Exercise Programme provides a progressive series of exercises that can be used with clients in a one-on-one clinical setting and also in small group therapeutic exercise classes to help retrain movement patterns.
The ‘Fundamental Patterns’ of movement associated with spinal control are taught mindfully, enabling the development of breath control, deep inner core control with appropriate global muscle activation. The program facilitates neuroplasticity – (we say we ‘train the brain to ease the pain’) and simultaneously improves the integrated function between the spine and proximal limb girdles and between them and the rest of the body. The aim is to improve the client’s adaptable control, flexibility and ‘neuro-muscular fitness’.
Integrating current scientific research (fascial, movement and neuro science) with the insights and evidence gleaned from extensive clinical practice, The Key Moves® 4 Spinal Rehab also integrates some of the concepts pertaining to Feldenkrais, yoga and Pilates.
