PhysioNovo courses 

  • are innovative - are the first and only medical exercise concept to focus on the integral motor function of hip, shoulder and vertebral joints in their close connection with the development of back pain.
  • uncover close connections between the integral motor function of the peripheral and vertebral joints and (the development of) back pain through the clinical assessment of findings.
  • In contrast to radiological diagnostics, always focus on the well-founded qualitative and quantitative motor findings in order to derive real motor treatment goals.
  • are evidence-based - although science cannot prove a causal relationship (there is always confounding), there is scientific consensus on a close relationship between dysfunctional joints and back pain - clinical reasoning as a diagnostic guide.
  • have an interactive character: application of the motor principles formulated by PhysioNovo to the exercise material introduced by the participants.
  • are long term and widely tested in physiotherapeutic practice.

PhysioNovo courses focus on

  • the acquisition of scientifically sound knowledge about
    • the (patho-)physiology and biomechanics of nerve fibres - neuropathic (radicular) vs nociceptive (articular) pain.
    • the (patho-)physiology and biomechanics of the large joints and the spine and their mutual biomechanical relationship.
    • the differential diagnosis of radicular - pseudo-radicular - articular symptoms.
    • the integral motor function of the legs, arms and spine.
    • The principle and significance of the force pair for optimal motor function of the joints and spine.
    • the sensory system of the articular - neurological system - radiating pain.
    • the motor function of the articular - neurological system - the facilitating/inhibiting influences directly on the joint motor function and indirectly on the motor function of the spine - Hip - Spine - Syndrome / Shoulder - Spine - Syndrome.
  • a well-founded analysis of the prevailing paradigms regarding the diagnosis and therapy of back pain.
  • the acquisition of practical skills for the targeted and methodical performance of a good motor diagnostic survey (including anamnesis).
  • the precise analysis of an ascertained compensatory motor function as well as its consequences.
  • the importance of the principle of the force couple for joints and WS - practical implementation in diagnostics and therapy.
  • the improvement / restoration of the dynamic motor function of the shoulder and hip joints in close connection with the improvement / restoration of the static motor function of the spine.
  • the improvement / restoration of the trunk motor function with the inclusion of the motor function of the pelvis/hip joint and the shoulder blade - posture training as a complex motor learning process.
  • the learning of a correct, back-friendly walking and running pattern based on its physiological development because of its great importance for the (restoration of the) resilience of the spine and hip joints.
  • consideration of the load-bearing capacity of the shoulder, hip and vertebral joints at all times.
  • the specific application of the concept in patients with back pain during and after pregnancy.
  • the specific application of the concept for patients with scoliosis. 
  • the application of the motor principles formulated by PhysioNovo in ATL and sports - injury prevention.
