This continuing education course is hosted on the Medbridge platform and teaches you how to use the movement system to assess, diagnose, and treat athlete movement dysfunction. The course is highly interactive. After analyzing human movement, you will integrate concepts of mobility, muscle performance, and symptom modification procedures into movement-based classifications. You will learn how to develop interventions based on observed faulty movement patterns and integrate sport-specific treatments into a systematic framework that addresses the athlete’s spine.
The Athlete Movement System: Spine
Chapters & Learning Objectives
1. The Movement System
This chapter will discuss the movement system framework, including posture, movement, mobility, muscle performance, and symptom modification procedures.
2. Posture and Movement
This chapter will focus on posture and movement analysis related to the lumbar, thoracic, and cervical spine.
3. Movement Classification
This chapter will utilize movement system impairment (MSI) syndromes developed by Shirley Sahrmann and colleagues to classify cervical and lumbar movement dysfunction.
4. The Treatment Pyramid
This chapter integrates sports-specific interventions into a systematic framework that addresses the athlete’s spine. The chapter will include 15 athlete case examples from various sports.
4. Question and Answer Session
This chapter is a viewer-submitted question and answer session facilitated by Jared Vagy.
