Athlete Movement System: Upper Half


Course Description

This course teaches you how to use the movement system to assess, diagnose and treat athlete movement dysfunction. The sports covered include tennis, swimming, baseball, volleyball, rock climbing and several additional upper body sports. Although the sports are used as examples of how to integrate movement assessment into diagnosing movement dysfunction the concepts can be applied to all patient populations. The course is lab based and highly interactive with an emphasis placed on the practical application of key principles learned. At the conclusion the course, you will have a greater understanding of how to integrate movement based assessments into sport-specific treatments.
