Kinetic Chain Strengthening

Kinetic Chain StrengtheningThe kinetic chain concept deals with functional relationships that exist with the upper and lower extremities; open kinetic chain (when the foot or hand is not in contact with the ground or another surface) and closed kinetic chain (the foot or hand are in a weight bearing position).

In rehabilitation, the use of closed kinetic chain strengthening techniques has become the treatment of choice for many clinicians, allowing for very early and safe intervention. Most sporting activities involve some aspect of weight bearing, with the foot in contact with the ground or the hand in a weight bearing position, so closed chain strengthening activities tend to be more functional than open chain activities. At RPT, we focus on functionally strengthening the entire kinetic chain rather than just strengthening a particular body segment.
