This seminar outlines the
use of the kinetic chain to diagnose and treat common pathologies affecting the
lower extremities with emphasis on the knee and ankle. Novel diagnostic
techniques including a biomechanical model will be discussed. Focus of
evaluation will be on determining the most appropriate treatment for the
individual patient. Treatments will
include manual interventions and an in-depth discussion of exercise
prescription with evidence for strengthening of individual muscles presented as
well as discussion of common running injuries.
All evaluation and treatments will have a heavy emphasis on best
evidence to date.
1. Identify the major principles traditionally utilized in the treatment of patients with lower extremity pathology due to running injury
2. Critically evaluate the evidence for the use of strengthening of the postural muscles as the primary form of treatment for patients with dysfunction of the lower extremity
3. Describe the anatomy and physiology of the musculature involved at the pelvis, hip, knee and ankle joints and how muscle imbalance can create pathology
4. Evaluate patients with hip, knee, ankle and foot pathology utilizing a biomechanical approach to determine an individual rehabilitation program for patients with common running injuries.
5. Create a treatment regimen to resolve muscle imbalances and utilize manual therapy and exercise as the primary form of treatment in this patient population.
