Movement Masterclass: Mobility

$ 79.00


This course spans movement professions and the Functional Movement Systems (SFMA, FMS, MCS) to focus on functional mobility and why its consideration is important early in the process of movement correction. Gray Cook guides you with his insights into global movement patterns and screening to differentiate mobility limitations due to tissue quality from those caused by inappropriate tone. The five labs present real-time coaching using both local (soft tissue work and joint mobilizations) and global (Mobility Flow and Starter) approaches to gathering information on mobility issues and programming the most appropriate and effective exercises to correct them.

Course Objectives

  • Define a mobility problem from a functional point of view.
  • Use screening methods to determine whether tissue or tone are causing limited mobility.
  • Guide patient/client through flow exercises to gather information and bring awareness to their asymmetries and balance issues.
  • Differentiate when local measures are appropriate and when global measures should be used.
  • Gain awareness of how proper screening, testing and assessing (FMS, SFMA and MCS) play vital roles in managing mobility issues.
  • Understand the developmental rationale of the mobility-first mindset.
