EVENT POSTPONED DUE TO COVID-19
A 4-hour workshop exploring the mechanics of movement with a specific focus on athletic performance. The interactive workshop focuses on biomechanics, analysis, strength & conditioning, speed and acceleration. You’ll learn how to identify and analyse strengths and weaknesses in movement skills, and we’ll provide a system to develop these skills.
OVERVIEW OF COURSE
Introduction to movement mechanics and the relationship between strength, balance, stability, speed and injury prevention. The program is structured to maximise teaching and learning of mechanics of movement. The course will include an interactive video and postural analysis through group analysis and past clinical case studies.
By the end of the 4-hour workshop the participants should;
- Identify the cause of injuries not just the symptom
- Recognise relationships between movement and injury
- Understand the concept of periodisation and how this impacts performance and rehabilitation
- Identify the individual prescription of exercise
- Have the ability to complete a basic postural analysis
- Understand and apply basic movement analysis
- Create appropriate remediation programs.
