Kinetic Chain Release
Kinetic Chain Release (KCR)
KCR was developed by Hugh Gilbert a Physiotherapist from Govan, Scotland. He created this protocol over 20 years during his 45+ years physiotherapy career.
This is a simple and effective protocol using a series of mobilizations and stretches to help return the body to its natural dynamic state.
KCR works directly on a number of internal structures including skeletal system, muscular system and connective tissue system.
KCR brings relief from:
Carpal Tunnel Chronic Fatigue Chronic knee issues
Sprained Ankles Migraine Headaches
Scoliosis Teeth Clenching Tight calves
Tired shoulders Pain between shoulders IBS

Chronic back pain Chronic groin strain Chronic neck pain

Tennis elbow TMJ dysfunction Wrist problems

Connective Tissue Release (CTR) The Hugh Gilbert Method
CTR is a follow on from KCR. If KCR hasn't successfully resolved an issue then there will be a restriction in the connective tissue system. CTR the Hugh Gilbert Method is a special focused form of connective tissue release and the work is focused on the joints. Specific CTR mobilisations will be performed after a full KCR to help release the connective tissue.
KCR Woman's Health
