Kinetic Control Workshop
Movements: They matter
The School of Physiotherapy conducted a workshop on “Kinetic Control: Level 1, Neck and Shoulder” on the 2nd and 3rd December 2017 from 9 a.m. to 4.30 p.m. A total of 25 participants, including postgraduate students and teachers attended the same.
Movements happen so easy, and only when they are altered that we realize the importance of this wonder that our body performs every day.
As health care practitioners, we are used to overthinking about impairments, but seldom do we realize that the uncontrolled body movements can be causative of these impairments.
The concept of “Kinetic Control” trains us to identify the uncontrolled movements, but also how to retrain and regain control of the same. We thank the movement specialists which help us move away from the patho-anatomical model to the kinesiopathological model.
With the other investigations, the parameter of healthy movement should be treated as an important part of our diagnosis as physiotherapists.
We thank Dr. Hemakshi Basu, an accredited tutor and the resource person of this workshop, to facilitate the understanding the Kinetic Control of the Neck and Shoulder, the two most frequently affected areas seen in patients in the outpatient department. The concept has improved or understanding of the factors causing neck and shoulder pain.
