FICS Sports Seminar Budapest 2018

Course Description

Speaker: Ståle Hauge, DC ICCSP

Stale Hauge

The McGill Method; The detailed back assessment – converging on a precise diagnosis.

  1. A functional diagnostic procedure. To elicit functional movement deficits that may predispose for compensatory movement patterns and the development of back pain.

A two hours demonstration.

Purpose: To provide a hands-on assessment protocol as a screening tool for performance of the neuromusculoskeletal system of the athlete / patient.

Background: Neuromechanics is the operational system for our motor control processes. Feedforward and Feedback pathways impacted by afferent inputs and cortical regulation are the practical outcomes driving movement and posture. Examining the components of neuromechanics and the potential operational deficits and their implications yield a pragmatic viewpoint regarding non-contact injury joint failure and management paradigms.

Outcome: By the end of the workshop participants will be able to:

1)     Perform a global mechanical assessment

2)     Understand the underlying principles of a global proprioceptive deficit

3)     Cite current research to support the performance deficits

4)     Integrate the assessment protocol into their management paradigm if desired


Hour 1 – Introduction

Goals and Objectives of the workshop

Current research on the sensorimotor system

Current literature on non-contact sports injuries

Hour 2 – Theory

Neuromechanics of sport

Sensorimotor dis-integration

Synergistic de-coupling

Impact of core dysfunction on performance

Hour 3 – Testing

Introduction of the global assessment

Hands-on assessment utilizing the global assessment

Hour 4 – Application

Integration of the theory of corrupted muscle response patterns and specific adaptation to imposed demand. Integration into management paradigms.

The two approaches may then be compared and contrasted.
