Movement System Impairment Syndromes of the Lumbar Spine, Hip and Shoulder: Basic Application

Movement System Impairment Syndromes of the Lumbar Spine, Hip and Shoulder: Basic Application - Friday, Saturday & Sunday, April 26, 27 & 28, 2019

Program Overview: This three day course format is an expansion of Dr. Shirley Sahrmann’s standard and long standing two day course on Movement System Impairment Syndromes of the Lumbar Spine, Hip, and Shoulder. The overall objective is to provide additional time for presentation and demonstration of the concepts, as requested by some of our past course participants. The HMH, Johnson Rehabilitation Institute would like to express its deep appreciation to Dr. Sahrmann for the numerous times she has honored us as a course instructor and for designing this special format for our April 26-28, 2019 offering.

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.
