What is a kinetic chain? Originally published by orthopedic surgeon Art Steindler in 1955, the basic concept of a kinetic chain is described as individual joints and muscles don’t work individually, but rather they work together as a group for any meaningful motion you’ll ever make. This recognizes the fact that we don’t just have muscles, we have a nervous system that controls muscles. During this 4 hour course the instructor will discuss a bottom-up approach of assessment of the body with starting at the ground and moving up to the occiput. Learn how unilateral foot hyperpronation can stem from a weak glut medius muscle, and how dysfunction in breathing can affect spinal stability.
