KCR is a simple yet extremely effective system of medically and scientifically recognised and approved series of gentle mobilisations and stretches as developed by Scottish Physiotherapist Hugh Gilbert.

You will be revise the twenty three step Kinetic Chain Release (KCR) protocol in a classroom setting with hand-on experience and gain a chance to reacquaint yourself with other practitioners.

Kinetic Chain Release Protocol received a 99% ranking from FOTO an industry leading outcomes management system which evaluated of 2500 KCR case studies against a huge data base of over 36 million.

That means that KCR is now ranked as a number one treatment in the USA and Canada.

Out of the 2400 clinician case studies that KCR has been ranked against a large majority were Physiotherapists.

A comparison of treated conditions showed that for neck complaints an average of 10.8 visits were compared against the Gold Standard KCR only required 1.3

The effectiveness of most comparable treatments was 10 to 11 sessions for full recovery where as KCR averaged at just 1.6 sessions. A massive reduction in recovery time and costs for patients.

Such a great success rate is why KCR is rapidly growing to become the Gold Standard for treatment.
