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.
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.
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.
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.
