Take home clinical messages from The 2018 Movement Conference

29th March 2018

Here are some take home messages feedback from the delegates

Opening Address Maria Stokes, University of Southampton,

'movement quality making a difference to people’s lives'

Deborah Falla, Professor School of Sport, Exercise and Rehabilitation Sciences, opened the keynote presentation. She presented a powerful message: people with neck pain demonstrate unique adaptations to pain ie there is no one consistent response -because of this there is no one consistent intervention. Retraining must be tailored for individual if we are to manage recurrence. No recipes!

Ewa Roos, Professor and Head of Research, Musculoskeletal Function and Physiotherapy, Department of Sports and Clinical Biomechanics, University of Southern Denmark gve the clear message movement is changing lives. After four years more than 26.000 osteoarthritis patients have been treated with patient education and exercise therapy by certified clinicians, with reduced sick leave, reduced pain and intake of pain killers, increased gait speed, physical activity and quality of life as a result. This message is so powerful it's influencing policy.

'exercise is good for you and relieves pain'

Bart Dingenen, University of Hasselt, Belgium A Physical Therapist is (or should be) a movement systems specialist

Mark Comerford, Movement Performance Solutions, Bristol, UK Bring together different perspectives on movement evaluation - observing preferred movement patterns and cognitive movement control tests


Lincoln Blandford, Movement Performance Solutions, Bristol, UK Cognitive movement control testing allows us to test CHOICE on movement and apply synergistic reasoning

Nadine Booysen, University of Southampton, UK Value in movement quality for all in youth sport

James Onate, Ohio State University, USA Central changes are seen with low load eccentric interventions. Making individuals more robust to change

Alli Gokeler, University of Groningen, The Netherlands The value of external focused cues in training,  the importance of measuring retention and transferring learning into function and performance - 'train individuals to have the capacity to detect what is going on around them'.

Jamie North, St Mary’s University, Twickenham, UK Learning how to get 'getting comfortable with the uncomfortable' 

Richard Blagrove, Birmingham City University, UK The value of strengthening movement to improve running performance

And then more fun at drinks reception in John Corbett Lounge and post match interview naturally, we were delighted by everybody's performance today - all about 3 points - everyone moves differently, n=1, & Movement Health matters

Worldwide appeal of movement and the movement message brought delegates from Japan, Hong Kong, Taiwan, India and South America. The arena of movement is large and has a place for everyone, every discipline - there is no one approach but the clearest message of the 2 days is that movement must be championed
