OPITMIZE YOUR STRUCTURE AND MOVEMENT STRATEGY
About Training & rehabilitation
Our structural and movement-based therapeutic approaches have led many people back to a pain free everyday life, to significant strength increases, and to a stronger self image. Unfortunately, modern pain science has led most of musculoskeletal therapists away from structural work and postural & movement correctives. We have not followed this route, but rather work more intricately with structural analysis and corrective procedures than ever before.
We analyse your structure, and look for deviations from optimal alignment with high attention to detail. This, amongst other things, involves local alignment within a given joint, as well as how the bones are positioned in relation to each other. Some examples could be a rotated pelvis, winging scapula or anterior femoral glide.
Even though the the body’s general stabilizing pattern is made visible in standing posture, the deeper details will reveal themselves during movement. A specific example could be that the foot overly pronates in posture, but turn out to supinate during movement. There are numerous examples of similar fashion, because structure is dynamic. Because of this, biomechanical articulation will differ in various scenarios and sequences.
Manual muscle testing
Muscle testing is used to differentiate between weak, strong, under- & overactive structures, in many different settings. This is especially useful in situations with muscle or nerve pain, where one, without a tool of testing, does not know whether the tight and painful muscle is irritated due to weakness, or rather due to overcompensation for other inactive structures.
Release techniques and specific strengthening protocols
We also utilize release techniques such as dry needing and cross-friction massage. This is always combined with adapted corrective exercises. All of the approaches we use are done so in order to reach a specific goal, such as increasing foot pronation, low back lordosis or centration of the femoral head in the joint socket.
After 8 years with back pain and 3 disc herniations, it was Kjetil that turned out to be my lower back’s rescue, despite numerous visits to the doctor, chiropractor, physiotherapist as well as naprapaths!

When I arrived at Kjetil’s clinic, his approach was completely different, and his level of knowledge was far superior to any health professional I had visited in the past.

Nothing has me helped so far and no one have been able to find good answers for my pain. That was before I came to Trening og Rehab and Kjetil Larsen.

Location & arrival
The clinic is located in proximity of Oslo central railway station, just an eight minute subway ride in the eastward direction. Right outside OCRS, take the stairs down to the subway and follow the “eastward” sign. Wait for the tram that says “5 – Vestli”, and take it unto the “Hasle” station which is the 4th station ahead.
From Hasle station, you’ll see a large blue building on the right hand side of the rails, a few hundred feet ahead. My office is in that building, in the third floor. If you are very early, there is a waiting area in the second floor, in the cafeteria.
