The School of Physiotherapy conducted a workshop on “Kinetic Control: Level 1, Hip and Lumbar Spine” on the 25th and 26th February 2017 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. A total of 26 participants, including postgraduate students and teachers attended the same.
We are very grateful to Dr. Hemakshi Basu, resource person of the workshop for introducing us to this concept of testing control of movement and identifying the uncontrolled movements.
The musculoskeletal physiotherapists are used to very quick results and educating them on this concept requires huge change in cognition.
It is high time that we take over and take ownership of movement control in the body and stop giving common stereotype exercises to all our patients. Instead it is very important for us to identify right and wrong movements and educate them. So it not only a cerebral process for the therapists, but also the patients in understanding their movements better and actively involving them in the treatment.
So with this we conclude by saying “Happy movements will get us happy moments”. Let us all work towards this goal.
