Overview

Combined Movement Theory is a component in a holistic approach in the management of vertebral column disorders. One of the most popular paradigms of passive movement treatment in spinal dysfunction is the Maitland Concept (Spinal manipulative thrust technique - SMTT) and the corollary of this, Combined Movement Theory (CMT).

The aims of this course are to introduce the fundamental similarities in approach between SMTT and CMT and introduce a process of SMTT selection based upon CMT. It is envisaged that adopting this rational of SMTT selection will provide the participant with a method of applying SMTT that integrates the two concepts. Learn when, where and how to achieve the benefits of effective mobilisation and gentle manipulation.

This workshop will be delivered in 2 parts. Interested participants are encouraged to sign up for both parts for maximum learning outcomes. It can be taken up individually if necessary.
Combined Movement Theory and Practice (Part 2)
This 2-day workshop focuses on the thoracic and lumbar spine posteriorly. Participants will be able to clinically reason the decision on when to mobilise and when to manipulate a thoracic or lumbar spinal joint. The workshop will also go through the evidence base behind mobilisation and manipulation in the treatment of thoracic and lumbar spinal dysfunction.

What You’ll Learn

Upon completion of the workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Clinically reason what patient presentation type would be suited to the CMT approach.
  • Develop the skills needed to determine primary movement patterns, suggest source structures and apply the corresponding starting positions for treatment.
  • Develop skills in palpating the cervical spine anteriorly, and the rest of the spine posteriorly. Participants will be able to palpate muscle spasm and passive joint restriction.
  • Clinically reason the decision of when to mobilise and when to manipulate a spinal joint.
  • Appreciate the complexities of issues surrounding pre-manipulative screening and the risk/benefits of end of range mobilisation and SMTT’s.
  • Appreciate the evidence base behind mobilisation and manipulation in the treatment of spinal dysfunction.
  • Clinically reason progression and regression of treatment and be conversant with the notation of treatment.
