Integrative Rehab Training (IRT) with Michael Mullin
19 September 2021 at 9:00 am5:00 pm
NOTE: IRT HAS PASSED! YOU CAN STILL GET ACCESS TO THE RECORDING OF THE SEMINAR!
Integrative Rehab Training (IRT) is a 1-day seminar with a combination of theoretical and practical courses, specifically designed for physiotherapists, rehabilitation experts and trainers.
IRT will take place at Strovolos Cultural Center, on Sunday, September 19th, 2021. Participants will get a certificate of attendance for Integrative Rehab Training (IRT).
During the 8hour seminar, participants will experience the M. Mullin strategic Integrative Rehab Training model, from symptom/diagnosis to treatment and training. The process to identify and understand issues related to structural/postural asymmetries or imbalances, to prescribe training programs with functional training movements and breathing techniques. Participants will get a deep understanding of how functional training can optimize the rehabilation process and how it can help reduce future injuries.
To have an improved understanding of how anatomical influences of our structure and how they can dictate movement biases’.
To appreciate the underlying mechanisms which drive our movement outcomes.
To provide assessments which help drive decision-making to aid in improving respiratory variability and subsequently to improve rehabilitation and training outcomes.
To review intervention strategies along a rehabilitation:training spectrum to help manage the identified deficiencies and imbalances.
To discuss ways to integrate the above concepts into higher level training programming.
Covid-19 update: Seminar will take place as planned. If it gets cancelled or postponed due to covid-19, we will fully refund all the participants with any amount paid. Please note that registrations is strictly limited to 20 people (based on covid-19 government regulations at the time).

A LIVE EXPERIENCE OF THE M. MULLIN INTEGRATIVE REHAB-TRAINING MODEL, FROM SYMPTOMS/DIAGNOSIS TO TREATMENT AND TRAINING
|09:15 – 10:30||Making Sense of the Systems
The human system cannot be taken for granted. It is a highly complex organism which involves many moving parts which have to work in unison to carry out even the most menial of tasks. Discussion of this complexity, from both phylogenetic as well as embryonic development, as well as the normal asymmetrical elements of human structure and function will be reviewed.
|10:30 – 10:45||MINI BREAK|
|10:45 – 12:00||Understanding “Posture” & Common Misunderstandings
Posture is an often used term to describe an assumed ideal position one needs to establish in order to combat the influence of gravity. It has developed a fairly fixed thought process along with its perceived position. This, along with other common misunderstandings prevalent in the rehab and training fields will be discussed and clarified.
|12:00 – 12:15||MINI BREAK|
|12:15 – 13:30||Respiratory Mechanics, Training & Integration
The role that our breathing strategies has on our overall function cannot be stressed enough. It can affect everything from our ability to position ourselves during the day, to our balance, gait, performance, stress levels, and a number of different important functions of our body. A review of respiratory mechanics and its influence on these elements will be discussed.
|13:30 – 14:45||LUNCH BREAK|
|14:45 – 16:00||Primary Assessments
There are multiple approaches and strategies for assessing the human system prior to engaging in a rehabilitation and/or training program. Being able to recognize the variability that patients and clients may present to you with respect to resting position, movements and mechanics, compensations which may have developed and other inputs is critical. Specific assessments—both hands-on or hands-off—as they relate to the body’s resting position, movement patterns and potential compensatory strategies will be reviewed.
|16:00 – 16:15||MINI BREAK|
|16:15 – 17:30||Intervention Strategies
Rehab and training are two concepts which should be considered constantly superimposed on each other. They should not be considered independent entities of each other as they run along a continuum of progression with rehab being important to help return to higher levels of function and training a product to help maintain control to reduce the need for future rehab. This continuum as well as interventions to address the deficiencies noted in the primary assessments will be covered.
|17:30 – 17:45||MINI BREAK|
|17:45 – 19:00||Program Design
There are a multitude of ways to help organize a rehab/training program and to some degree they all have merit. This section will review movement activities, position progression and specific program design considerations to help build a solid program for both under the clinician’s supervision as well as for the patient/client to perform on their own at home.
