Objectives
  1. Describe how measurable (i.e., visible) pathologies correspond with underlying muscle patterns.
  2. Connect long standing physiological principles with puzzling clinical observations.
  3. Explain the concept of dysfunctional motor patterns using long-standing physiological laws (e.g., Sherrington’s Laws, Wolff’s Law, etc.).
  4. Apply exercises which target the CNS to restore muscle inventory lost to compensation.
  5. Identify and correct defensive postural adaptation using a single integrated motion.
  6. Demonstrate movement strategies which are immediately and favorably integrated by the CNS, thus avoiding exercises which the body resists as “invasion.”
Outline
WHAT IS THE COMPLETE CORE?
The Answer Tells Us What’s the Key to Truly Functional Exercise
  • Looking deeper than what we normally consider the “core”
  • How outdated technology has impaired our definitions of the core and negatively affected our treatments
  • The lack of outcomes in the face of all the data – what’s going on?
  • Effecting what happens “before the core” for proper muscle recruitment
HANDS-ON LAB
Improve Our Treatment With Kinesiological Surface Emg (sEMG) Testing
  • 11 key movements that better informs our work with the core
  • Video and sEMG recording of test activities – what does it tell us about the body?
  • How to use the sEMG in our work as rehab professionals?
IMPLICATIONS OF CNS = CORE
What sEMG Tells Us About the Kinetic Chain
  • How the CNS sees muscles
  • Review sEMG data to observe “chains” vs. groups
  • Muscles, mood, and movement
  • CNS perspective: a chain is only as strong as its weakest link
  • Implications of CNS as CORE: Motor learning in ever activated, learning, adapting system
WHAT IS THE CORE “TWIST” AND HOW UNDERSTANDING IT IS REVOLUTIONARY TO TREATMENT
  • How the motor system is in training before you hit the gym
  • The Core “Twist” pattern as the driving force in:
    • Lower quarter symptoms – most common underlying pathologies
    • Upper quarter symptoms – most common underlying pathologies
  • Recognize how elusive the missing links are
  • Recognizing the simple elegance of functional chains
TRAINING FUNCTIONAL CHAINS
The Benefits of Exercising Out of the Twist
  • Training vs. exercise
    • Targeting the CNS with structured, resisted movement
  • Cross-training out of the Twist
  • If an exercise doesn’t counter the Twist, then it’s not reinforcing it
HANDS-ON LAB
The Exercises You’re Not Using to Enhance Posture, Balance & Coordination
  • Demo and practice exercise
    • XC Skiing, backwards resisted walking – ideal activities to counter primary overuse patterns
  • Group brainstorming: FCT demo and SkiX activity
  • Signs of success: Posture, balance, and youthful boldness

DAVID LEMKE, NMT, SEMG TECH

Five years after a severe back injury in 1980, David Lemke, NMT, sEMG Tech began his apprenticeship as a massage therapist in Canada. After 10 years of successfully treating thousands of pain sufferers, he had a breakthrough when information from a kinesiological surface electromyography (sEMG) evaluation led him to discover that single manipulation freed a borderline frozen shoulder and eliminated nearly all the pain – and the results lasted. Mr. Lemke eventually developed a unique model of functional assessment using sEMG.

Since the 1990s, his treatment has been relied on by top performing athletes, dancers and martial artists, those recovering from orthopedic surgeries, and generally stressed individuals. As a passionate interest, Mr. Lemke has enjoyed working with select special education teachers treating motor coordination problems in children diagnosed with learning disabilities. He is a Certified Dartfish Video Coach and uses slow motion video analysis of biomechanics in athletics and rehabilitation. He has used kinesiological sEMG (computer aided muscle analysis) in testing of exercise equipment, devices, and new treatment procedures as well as trained hundreds of specialized massage therapists for physical therapy and complementary healthcare clinics. Mr. Lemke was the primary consultant to Champions Sports Medicine (Dr. P.Z. Pearce, Ironman Medical Director, Spokane, WA) in the creation of their Biomechanics lab.
