This course is a recording of a previously hosted live webinar event. Polling and question submission features are not available for this recording. Format and structure may differ from standard MedBridge courses. This course teaches you how to use the movement system to assess, 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 course include symptom modification procedures, dynamometry, anatomical slings, neuromuscular chains, dual vectors and reflexive activation.nt.
