Closed Kinetic Chain Exercises
Closed Kinetic Chain (CKC) exercises consist of movements over multiple joints involving two or more muscles or muscle groups. CKC exercises are performed with the hands or feet in a fixed position (they do not move), in contact with the ground or the base of a machine. The exercises are usually body weight bearing but can also be performed with assistance from a trained therapist.
The deep understanding that the therapists at Level Eleven possess about how the body and all of its segments work together is essential for developing an effective therapy program utilizing CKC exercises.
