The movement system teaches you how to use movement to diagnose and treat athlete movement dysfunction. The material is highly interactive with an emphasis on the practical application of principles covered in the course. Concepts utilized in the courses include closed kinetic chain muscle testing, dynamometry, speed of force generation, anatomical slings, neuromuscular chains, dual vectors and reflexive activation. At the conclusion of the course, you will have a greater understanding of how to integrate movement based assessments into sport-specific treatments.
- Learn the biomechanics and sport specific demands on the athlete movement system
- Understand the importance of regional interdependence and its functional relationship to pathobiomechanics
- Demonstrate and select appropriate movement assessments and treatments
- Provide interventions based on faulty movement patterns observed and relate to key impairments obtained from the objective exam
- Learn the current research supporting movement and sport-specific assessments and treatments
