NEURO FIT HYRBID
The Hybrid course combines both live & digital learning aiming to up skill neuro physio teams over three months.
The learning programme includes:
- One live face to face training session.
- Access to our digital course which includes 9 hours of modular designed learning across three themed sections. This aims to explore the three main topics around our Neuro Fit programme – functional training, exercise prescription and play, all centred around gait.
- Access to our private Facebook group where there will be fortnightly Facebook live sessions answering questions, doing video analysis & completing tasks. These will be in sync with modules you are covering with the aim of being able to try things out with clients & problem solve as you learn – a great way to implement & consolidate learning.
FUNCTIONAL TRAINING MODULE
Bob Wood introduces us to a different model of studying movement. He introduces the fundamental movement principles namely gravity, ground reaction and momentum. He describes how our bodies have created systems of control through three planes to allow efficient movement. This section introduces us to a system of assessment, exercise selection and exercise progression around the key topic of locomotion. The Neuro Fit team then demonstrate through six video case studies how these principles can be applied into the neurological world.
EXERCISE PRESCRIPTION MODULE
Natalie Opoku challenges our understanding in relation to the definition of Hypertrophy, muscle endurance, strength and power. She talks us through the evidence base behind the characteristics of fitness training. Assists in developing our knowledge of physiological responses to training and its application in treatment sessions and when designing home programmes and exercise classes. The Neuro Fit team then demonstrate through a gladiator type challenge and video case study how to fitness output test and apply these principles in the neuro world.
Nikki Penny and Helen Weaver introduce the topic of play. Its importance to physical, mental and social wellbeing, and its integral part in human development. They talk about how introducing more play into their treatment sessions improved results but also started to shape their workplace and organically develop a clinic community. They open up the questions about what kind of player you are and the different ways of beginning to identify what kind of players your clients are.
