This two -day workshop explores the natural processes underlying neuromuscular recovery and how they can be applied clinically to improve the control of movement after musculoskeletal injury, pain conditions and CNS damage.
In the workshop the participants will be introduced to a functional-behavioural approach in which the individual’s own movement repertoire is used for rehabilitation and to recover functionality. It explores how familiar daily activities can be amplified to provide the necessary challenges to recover motor control. The course will move away from traditional models of rehabilitation that promote movement fragmentation and approaches that have little resemblance to normal human movement such as gym-based exercise, muscle-by-muscle and muscle chains rehabilitation, core training and dynamic stabilisation.
During the workshop the participants will learn to assess and identify the particular motor losses and develop specific strategies to help motor and movement recovery. The practical aspect of the course will include hands-on approaches as well as specific challenges / exercise and self-care strategies to regain and improve movement and functionality.

• Neuromuscular rehabilitation for patients with central nervous system damage (stroke, MS, head injuries)
• Pain and the motor system: rehabilitation in the presence of pain
• Psychological factors and motor control rehabilitation
• Cognitions and behaviour in managing movement recovery
• Self-care strategies for the patient
