Rock Tape Movement Specialist

Human movement involves the interplay between the person and their environment alongside the person and their “parts” being able to meet their movement goals. This course will emphasize goal orientated movement assessments with an emphasis away from stereotypic standard movement screening practices. This course will introduce a new paradigm for understanding and enhancing how our clients move using three systems of human movement; neurologic (mapping), core control (midline) and mechanical (motor) systems.    

A variety of interventional tools (mobility balls, exercise bands, foam rollers, compression floss bands, kinesiology tape, agility and conditioning equipment) will be used to tackle an evidence-informed, brain based approach to movement and functional rehabilitation programming.

At the conclusion of the course, attendees will be able to:

  • Identify the role of neuromuscular movement assessment

  • Assess conscious(cortical) and unconscious(cerebellar) proprioception testing for the patient/client as it relates to human movement.

  • Compare and contrast the difference between mobility restrictions and neuro/somatic  restrictions (Brain vs.Tissue).

  • Integrate the“3 Movement Pillars”and how they relate to human movement control and performance (Brain (Neurological/Psychological), Midline, Mechanical)

  • Evaluate movement assessment techniques to identify faulty motor patterns in fundamental movements (e.g.squatting).

  • Critique and demonstrate proper use of compression floss bands, foam rollers, kinesiology tape (as a motor control tool) and mobility balls for movement limitations.

  • Screen and develop  movement with the use of exercise bands, agility and conditioning equipment as well as body weight correctives with appropriate progressions and regressions.
