welcome

MOVEMENT LINKS specializes in neuromuscular rehabilitation seminars designed to enhance the clinician’s understanding of the movement system. Presented in a collaborative and stimulating environment, these courses emphasize clinical reason­ing and the application of knowledge into clinical practice.

Clare Frank, the director and founder, is a dynamic speaker and widely recognized clinician. Her philosophy of managing musculoskeletal pain is rooted in develop­mental kinesiology and draws from various manual and neuromuscular approaches.

Movement Links

This four-weekend seminar series is designed to provide a deeper understanding of the movement and neuromuscular approaches in the evaluation and management of musculoskeletal pain syn­dromes. Functional regional interdependence be­tween the muscular, osteoarticular and central nervous system in the regulation of movement will be a focus of discussion and practice.

Janda Approach

This lab intensive workshop introduces the theory, research, and concepts of Czech physician Dr. Vladimir Janda (1928 - 2002).

Dr. Janda pioneered the concept of muscle im­balance syndromes, and developed a systematic evaluation and unique treatment approach to mus­culoskeletal pain syndromes. This workshop pro­vides the scientific evidence to support the role of muscular imbalance in the pathogenesis of muscu­loskeletal pain. With functional pathologies, the ac­tual cause of pain is rarely at the site of pain.

Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization (DNS)

The nervous system establishes programs that con­trol human locomotion, which is comprised of pos­ture and movement. This “motor control” is largely established during the first critical years of life.

Based upon the principles of neurodevelopmen­tal kinesiology, i.e., the neurophysiologic aspects of the maturing movement system on which the Prague School was established, the scope of clinical rehabilitation options for many of our neuro-muscu­loskeletal patients has been expanded.
