Biomechanical Pathology & T.O.R.C. (Technique. Overload. Recovery. Consistency)
Instructor: Blaine Mackie, B.Sc., B.Sc.P.T., Dip. Manip. P.T., F.C.A.M.T. CFTII, RAW Powerlifter
This is one of my favorite courses.
This course is specifically designed to assist physiotherapists in theoretical and practical concepts of Biomechanical Pathology & strength training, including but not restricted to: review of pathobiomechanics, strength movement techniques, unique and advanced strength training concepts, biomechanical adaptation, and simple periodized programming concepts, all with consideration of “normal and abnormal” biomechanical movement. You will be educated and practice the movement patterns of key exercises for strength development. The course includes a manual, lecture and a significant practical sessions . Please come prepared to experience strength movements.
If references for this course are desired, please email me as I would be more than happy to give you contacts of those that have completed this course.
- To experience the science and art of strength training
- Review the physiology of strength and physics of strength movements
- Initiate discussion and provide experience on the biomechanics and physics behind strength movements from simple to complex, and in the presence of pathomechanics.
- To use strength movements practically with injury.
- To design strength programs specifically for your patients with biomechanical movement dysfunctions within a performance strength model.
- Participation from basic to complex strength movements
- To use the information and exercises the first day back in the clinical setting.
- Use of the strength information for patients and self.
