Born To Walk
Walking is one of the most common daily functions, but one of the least understood biomechanically. To understand anatomy the therapist must first understand function.
On this course, we analyse the mechanics of efficient gait, looking at the chain of movement events from the feet to the spine and into the shoulders. Upon completing this course you will have the tools to understand true, real-life movement and how to correct faulty patterns.
Based on the well researched and well-received text of the same name, this workshop is designed to help the therapist understand functional anatomy. In this workshop we analyse the mechanics of efficient gait, looking at the chain of movement events from the feet to the spine and into the shoulders. We explore how gravity and momentum work in concert with joints and the fascial and myofascial tissue to improve proprioceptive communication, muscle firing, and collagenous tissue recoil.
You will come away with the tools to investigate, analyse and intervene in non-pathological walking. We will explore the many ways in which collagenous tissues assist movement efficiency and then learn how to build a personalised movement program to improve your clients’ gait.

Two 2-Day Workshops
Our clients need to function in the real-world but many assessments, treatments and sometimes even the criteria for client discharge are based on non-contextual and non-load bearing tests. By applying a fully tensegrity-based approach to manual therapy we can work in context and with loads to better prepare our clients for life in the real world.
