Move to Integrate (MTI)


Move to Integrate is a new approach to assessment with dynamic postural & functional analysis.

A fast and efficient client centred assessment of the whole body. This is the middle ground between a general glance at the whole structure and specific orthopaedic tests. A logical and detailed method of examining the whole system and its inner-relationships.

Move from a postural model towards also assessing function. Treatments can then be applied using table-based, standing, or exercise interventions – all with the intention to improve the client’s quality of movement and remove inappropriate strains.

Allowing accurate identification of the most potent place to begin treatment, without chasing pain. Create a tailored approach for each individual within the time available in clinic.

Utilising Diane Lee’s Integrated Systems Model as a base our approach to postural & functional analysis lets you start asking better questions about how to improve the client’s efficiency.

Posture and movement should be metabolically economical it should not be hard work. Our tensegrity-based approach is not locked in any protocol – just based on the reality of anatomy and can be adapted to your modality.

We will explore the influence of gravity and ground reaction forces in relation to real anatomy and give you the ability to see the real picture. With no jargon and no false promises. This will give you the freedom to then explore with your own lens.

The approach is simple and based in real-world anatomy, we will look at:

Effects of Compression – Gravity, ground reaction force and the natural coupling through the skeletal system and how it might affect soft tissues.

Effects of Tension or ‘Shortness’ – What is the soft tissue balance? More importantly, what has changed in the soft tissues’ ability for movement?

Effects of Weakness in the Tissues – Viewing the body as a tensegrity system, it requires enough inherent stiffness or tone within the soft tissues as well the bones.

What happens when we lose that tone and how can we get it back?

This course is designed to

  • Train your eye and hand to improve assessments – to both feel what you see and see what you feel
  • Understand and test for the real reasons for the patterns
  • Enable you to build an individual program for your client with a better idea of where to start

Further Highlights Include

A full repertoire of interventions for the upper body including quadratus lumborum, obliques and intercostals, multifidi and shoulder girdle muscles. Bringing the protocols together to assess and understand the full body connections.

You will be able to

  • Describe posture with a non-judgemental descriptive language
  • Differentiate between drivers of postural compensation
  • To assess the difference between them
  • Design individualised programs for your client
