The Physio-Sport Center for Physiotherapy and Motor Skills, as the only center in Poland and one of several in Europe, has been training physiotherapists and doctors in this innovative concept of working with patients for 12 years. Kinetic Control introduces the concept of dynamic stability and muscle balance. They discuss in detail the movement system as a source of dysfunction and related symptoms. The functional classification of the muscle system is discussed along with typical patterns of dysfunction in the local (local) and global system. The main topic is the mechanism of motor control both segmental at the translational level and control of functional range of motion at the level of the whole segment. The concept addresses the problem of dynamic dysfunction (joint stability) by describing it as uncontrolled movement (‘instability’). Another problem with which instability is often associated is loss of control of range of motion (restriction=restraint). Both instability and lack of range of motion control have a direct relationship to pain and pathology. The differences between motor control and strength training (symmetric and asymmetric) are important. Use clinical guidance on when to re-educate motor control and when to introduce muscle strengthening-based training in regaining full function and movement control.

The diagnostic and movement assessment process is discussed in detail based on current research, scientific evidence and clinical literature. Mechanical population subgroups classified by pain and musculoskeletal system pathology are identified based on the current motor control assessment system. Clinical motor control tests accurately assess instability dysfunction. By understanding the principles of assessing and correcting motor control dysfunction, we are able to correct existing pathology. A clinical approach based on the practical application of current scientific research makes it possible to create individual therapy to correct mechanical movement dysfunction.

Kinetic Control science and therapy

Current scientific research indicates that people with pain use completely different movement patterns than people without pain. Often people with the same pathology diagnosis use completely different movement dysfunction patterns. This can critically affect development, pain episodes and therapeutic management strategies, resulting in chronic complaints. Studies in the last 5 years have shown that Uncontrolled Movement (UCM) is directly related to pain and frequency of recurrence. Uncontrolled movement is diagnosed by a series of motor control tests that identify both the location and direction of uncontrolled movement.
