Multi-Region Core Stability refers to the ability of the shoulder girdle, lumbo-pelvic, and hip regions to control torsion in order to protect joint mechanisms and provide the basis for movement. This stability enables the extremities to generate functional movement and perform work. These three regions must have stability in order to remain stationary, or move as required, for the extremities to function with appropriate force and precision. The initial function of a muscle is to stop movement; therefore, it is only with a stable base that quality movement can occur. Both a soccer player kicking a ball, and a tennis player serving, require a stable base upon which they can generate the precise movement and force they need to correctly carry out their task. In order for each of these movements to occur with accuracy, strength, and safety, they require the proximal extremity link to be stabilized. This is a hands-on course that will equip the participant with the ability to assess and treat each of these regions, along with their interplays. Drivers of dysfunction are identified and the treatment rationale multifaceted but includes inhibition of over-active muscles and movement patterns, followed by the facilitation and strengthening of antigravity muscles. This course is unique, clinic-ready and functional, and enables a therapist to stay modern with evidence-based treatment techniques and rationale. The methodology taught is applicable to many varying patient populations. Addressing the cause, more so than the result, enables treatment to be more effective.
