(Pre-Registration is required)
The purpose of this seminar is to introduce doctors to a systematic method of evaluation and assessment of injuries to the lower extremities, that incorporates global movement screens, with reliable special testing, to assist the doctor in developing a diagnostic plan, to guide further treatment options.
The seminar will begin by giving an overview of the more commonly used movement screening programs currently popular in the clinical setting. Research that evaluates the efficacy of these programs will also be discussed. Participants will then be exposed to a novel movement screening protocol that incorporates aspects of different programs as an option to consider. Lab time will be spent practicing this modified screening protocol.
Participants will also review anatomy and biomechanics of the ankle, knee, and hip regions. An emphasis will be placed on choosing the most appropriate special tests for each region, as well as how to perform and interpret these tests correctly. Common misconceptions will be discussed and tips for differential diagnosis and rehabilitation will also be explored. Lab sessions will emphasize practicing the tests discussed during the lecture portion.
