The Management of Uncontrolled Movement
|e-book - ePub|
|e-book - PDF|
This text is designed as clinical reference to develop knowledge of the examination, diagnosis and classification of motor control dysfunction and the management of movement dysfunction.
It will help the therapist:
- Identify the real clinical priorities
- Assess, diagnose and classify movement in terms of pain and dysfunction from a motor control and biomechanical perspective
- Have available a large range of motor control and movement retraining strategies to establish optimal functional control
- Use a clinical reasoning framework to prioritise clinical decision making
- Develop an assessment framework that will provide a diagnosis of dysfunction, pain sensitive tissues and pain mechanisms
- Use a clinical assessment tool to identify deficiencies and reassess improvements in motor control efficiency
Integrate non functional motor control back in functionally relevant movement.
- Structured approach
- Section one: Underpinning theory
- Section two: Region specific testing, classification and retraining using their unique rating system.
- Includes the diagnosis, classification and motor control retraining of movement dysfunction at the lumbar spine, sacro-iliac joint, hip, cervical spine and shoulder girdle
Published Reviews“Mark Comerford and Sarah Mottram are the founders of the Kinetic Control approach which is based on the premise that ‘uncontrolled movement’ or ‘movement faults’ can predispose people to musculoskeletal pain and disability. Their research has been widely published in the musculoskeletal literature and this is their first book. The aim of the text is to provide a clinical approach to the assessment and correction of movement faults...
Overall the authors achieve their aim by providing an extremely detailed text which is well thought out, assimilates other relevant research into an assessment and treatment approach with high face validity in the area of movement dysfunction
and management of musculoskeletal pain. The accessibility, sequential layout and logical development of complex concepts to a relatively advanced level provides enough for this book to be a valuable reference and clinical guide for students, experienced clinicians and teachers alike.” Michelle Wong BPhty, MHPrac(Hons), MPNZ, Physiotherapist, New Zealand Journal of Physiotherapy 2012, 40 (3) p.143
