Integrated Movement Science Level 4 students learn how to assess the body in accordance with Paul Chek’s Totem Pole system of evaluation and correction. Based on developmental and survival reflexes, students learn to assess key cranial nerve functions, the temporomandibular joint and bite function, cervical, and shoulder biomechanics. Specific orthopedic tests, length/tension assessments, stretches, mobilizations, and corrective exercise techniques are thoroughly covered.
IMS Level 4 students also learn the emotional and mental barriers to healing. The CHEK Professional who completes IMS Level 4 is an excellent team member in any medical practice handling complex cases, and on any amateur or professional sports team where technical approaches to exercise and well-being are needed.
