Joanne and Kent are both Chartered Physiotherapists with licences in the UK and registered to practice in Australia. Both tutors have over 20 years in international teaching experience at Post Graduate level and between them have taught over 400 courses internationally. Kent has a Postgraduate diploma in Manipulative Physiotherapy.

Joanne is the author of the books – “Stability, Sport and Performance Movement: Practical Biomechanics and Systematic Training for Movement Efficacy” and “The Power and the Grace: the Professional’s guide to Ease and Efficiency in Functional Movement”.

Course Outline (including breakdown of theory and practical component)

Part 1: Understanding Functional Movement and Movement Assessment

  • The stability argument – how functionally transferable are common training methods? (Theory)
  •  “Control” vs robust, adaptable movement: the evidence (Theory)
  • Key muscular and biomechanical patterns in function and dysfunction (Theory and Practical)
  • Using movement to understand “why” and not just “where” the patient has pain. (Practical)
  • Visual skill training for key movements. (Practical)
  • Master Coaching 1: cueing to achieve automatic responses. (Theory)
  • Functional movement assessment. (Practical)
  • Introduction to early/low level muscle activation techniques. (Practical)

Part 2: Trunk and Pelvis 1

  • Patient context: issues beyond the injury site which influence the treatment plan. (Theory)
  • Master Coaching 2: feedback methods. (Theory)
  • Phase 1 trunk and pelvis: unlocking the system, body awareness, and activation. (Practical)
  • Central axis control, even weight bearing and early balance.
  • Systematic progression. (Practical)
  • Balancing the Posterior Chain. (Theory and Practical)
  • Progression and integration of major pelvic behaviours of support and propulsion. (Practical)
  • Clinical scenarios to integrate knowledge. (Theory)

Part 3: Trunk and Pelvis 2

  • Balance (intermediate/advanced). (Theory and Practical)
  • Neuromuscular responses. (Theory and Practical)
  • Axial force management. (Theory and Practical)
  • Anterior chain intermediate level. (Practical)
  • Transverse and Coronal Plane Trunk exercises  (early/intermediate/advanced). (Practical)
  • Clinical scenarios to integrate knowledge. (Theory)

Part 4: Upper Quadrant

  • Force Management in the Upper Quadrant. (Theory)
  • Global context: the relationship of pelvis and trunk to shoulder presentations. (Theory)
  • Local facilitation techniques for shoulders: rotator cuff and scapular stabilisers. (Practical)
  • Integrating the shoulder with trunk and pelvis. (Theory and Practical)
  • The neck: global influences and force management. (Theory and Practical)
  • Clinical scenarios to integrate knowledge. (Theory)

Certification: Practitioners pursuing the JEMS Movement ART professional development pathway develop a distinctive and sought after approach to patient care. Certification is a method for recognising practitioners who have completed a specific number of postgraduate hours in training, and who have demonstrated an acceptable level of understanding and application of the techniques and philosophy. Practitioners who complete the programme will appear on the Register of Professionals on the JEMS website, to enable the public to identify and access appropriately trained individuals.

What are the qualifications/prerequisites necessary to attend this course?

This is a clinical course pathway which includes clinical scenarios & problem solving over a range of neuromusculoskeletal presentations and as such the pre requisite for the course is an Advanced Diploma or Degree in a related field with a rehabilitation focus. The course may also be suitable for clinical related Diploma graduates with extensive clinical & rehabilitation experience and appropriate post graduate CPD. Please contact us for clarification if necessary.
