Karel Lewit Functional Approach. Level 1
This seminar is delayed due to COVID-19 situation and is planned to be repeated Autumn 2020
Karel Lewit Functional Approach is a patient oriented, in depth rehabilitation method used to evaluate and improve human movement. It is very useful in solving non specific musculoskeletal pain cases.
The central part of Karel Lewit assessment is finding the “weak link” through very careful active and passive assessment of every segment of musculoskeletal system and understanding intersegmental relationships. After such a complex evaluation, the therapist will have a global view of his patient and will be able to direct treatments very specifically.
Treatment is made from two components: restoring limited range of motion (through simple muscle energy techniques or joint mobilisation/manipulation) and movement relearning (throuh corrective exercises, based on developmental kinesiology).
In this three-day seminar we will learn assessment and treatment techniques simultaneously, therefore you will be able to use gained knowledge in practice immediately.
Another thing worth mentioning – the instruction will teach assessment and treatment on real patients (two patient demonstration each day of the seminar), so you will be able to see and understand real applicability of the method.
The course will be held in English, with translation to Lithuanian language.
