If pain occurs with movement, then observation and analysis of movement are required. This programme will utilise smartphone video slow motion analysis to identify abnormal movement(s). Real-time symptom modification of deviant movement can improve the effectiveness and efficiency of movement system impairment syndromes. This approach can be fun by providing significant individual case level evidence, enhanced patient-centred care while enhancing engagement with the client to solve their movement problems. The use of 2D motion analysis can enhance clinicians' existing clinical toolkit and facilitate reflective learning and the professional development of the clinician.


This programme will cover the indications, benefits and barriers related to the use of 2D motion analysis, as well as tactics and techniques used for recording, analysing, storing and retrieving video data in 2D slow-motion video analysis. Commonly used terms associated with movement deviation will be discussed and the participant will learn how to integrate 2D motion analysis with symptom modification procedures, both face-to-face and via telehealth.


This course is made up of videos, reading, forum posts and a final quiz. The course content is split into the following sections:

  1. Indications, Benefits and Barriers of 2D Motion Analysis
  2. Techniques of 2D Slow-Motion Video Data Motion Analysis
  3. Using 2D Motion Analysis to Identify Deviant Movement
  4. Integrating 2D Video Analysis with Symptom Modification Procedure, Intervention and Telehealth
  5. Assignment
