Movement System Impairment Syndromes of the Lumbar Spine, Hip and Shoulder: Basic Application - Saturday & Sunday, April 28 & 29, 2018

Course Description: The concepts and principles associated with movement system impairments (MSI) and their role in mechanical musculoskeletal pain syndromes will be presented. This course will enable the clinician to discuss the concepts of relative flexibility and relative stiffness and the tissue adaptations that are associated with repeated movements and prolonged postures. The course provides instruction in identifying impairments in alignment, muscle length, strength, stiffness, performance and pattern of movement and their relationship to MSI syndromes. The signs and symptoms of movement impairment syndromes will be described. The syndromes are considered a form of diagnoses of the movement system and thus diagnoses that therapists should make. The course will provide instruction in the examination methods used to identify movement system impairments, which include 1) movement testing, 2) alignment assessments, 3) tests of muscle length, 4) tests of muscle strength, and 5) analysis of movement patterns during both specific joint motions and functional activities. Discussion will focus on the importance and means of developing a precise therapeutic exercise program and correcting impairments in alignment and movement patterns, as well as in the performance of functional activities. The course will cover movement impairments of the low back, hip and shoulder. The program will include demonstrations of examinations, selection of corrective exercises, and performance of therapeutic exercises. This course uses a lecture and demonstration format and does not include laboratory practice. The course is a prerequisite for the laboratory practice course on the Lower Quarter scheduled for October 20 & 21, 2018.

Movement System Impairment Syndromes of the Lower Quarter - Saturday & Sunday, October 20 & 21, 2018

Course Description: This course will provide a review and update of the concepts and principles of the movement system impairment (MSI) theory and its relationship to musculoskeletal pain syndromes.  The course includes both lecture and lab experience. It is designed to improve the clinician's skills in the performance of the examination procedures and the recognition of signs and symptoms of lower quarter movement system impairment syndromes. The course will emphasize the selection and performance of corrective exercises based on the results of the examination. Discussion will also include description of the diagnoses of the low back, hip and knee movement impairment syndromes. As indicated, the April 28 & 29, 2018 lecture course, Movement System Impairment Syndromes of the Lumbar Spine, Hip and Shoulder: Basic Application is a prerequisite for admission to this laboratory practice course.
