Foundation of Biomechanics and Biomechanics of movement – CPRS 4
You must hold a personal trainer or exercise science qualification to do this course
This is Course 4 of Pinnacle Training and Consulting Systems’ Certified Post Rehabilitation Specialist (CPRS) courses. You can study this course on its own, or do all 10 courses at a reduced fee.
Fitness Professionals who are certified will be able to position themselves as experts in human movement, showing they have strong understanding of the foundation science, functional assessments and application science as it relates to human movement. They will be able to work with any and all types of clients as well as with physiotherapists to transition clients from physiotherapy to the gym.
Course 4, brought to you in partnership with Pinnacle Training and Consulting Systems, is designed to teach the concepts of mobility, stability, controlled mobility and skill and how they all relate to movement. In order to understand both biomechanical principles and foundational biomechanics, essential terms and principles behind movement must be understood first. By learning these fundamental concepts, the student will be able to interpret the biomechanics of movement within the spine, shoulder, hip, knee and ankle.
You will learn to:
- Differentiate between the three planes of movement, providing one example of each
- Distinguish the factors that can affect or interfere with range of motion
- Compare the different types of range of motion available within the ankle, knee, hip, shoulder joints
- Express what the scapulohumeral rhythm (SHR) is within the shoulder and its importance with shoulder flexion and shoulder abduction movements
