This continuing education course is a recorded webinar hosted on the Medbridge platform. This course incorporates biomechanical, movement, and sport-specific based assessments to analyze and treat the lower quarter athlete. Concepts utilized in the course include relative flexibility, quality and timing of muscle contraction, dynamometry, closed kinetic chain muscle testing, speed of force generation, cross-body assessments, anatomical slings, neuromuscular chains, dual vectors, and reflexive activation. After the course, you will have a greater understanding of how to integrate clinical movement-based assessments into sport-specific treatments.
The Athlete Movement System: Lower Quarter
Chapters & Learning Objectives
1. The Movement System
This chapter will discuss the movement system framework, the foundational movement analysis, mobility, and muscle performance.
2. Biomechanics and Advanced Assessment: The Application of Advanced Concepts in LQ Sport
This chapter will take the foundational concepts that could be used on any patient and apply them to the biomechanics and advanced assessments specific to movements in various sports.
3. The Treatment Pyramid: The Application of Movement Science Concepts Into the Treatment of Sport Injury
This chapter will discuss the objectives of the treatment pyramid, specifically the application of movement, signs, and concepts of sports-related injuries.
This is a viewer submitted question and answer session, which will be facilitated by Dr. Vagy.
