Conference Description :
This two-day intermediate course provides you with the information and skills necessary to analyze the functional anatomy and mechanics of the lumbar spine and lower kinetic chain. Evidence-based research and up-to-date clinically-relevant techniques are presented.
Extensive laboratory sessions focus on differential diagnosis to rule out lumbar stenosis, lumbar facet dysfunction, lumbar strain, lumbar disc herniation, hip bursitis, gluteal tendinitis, piriformis syndrome, ITB Friction Syndrome, patellofemoral pain syndrome, patellar tendinitis, achilles tendonitis, plantar fasciitis as well as posterior tibialis tendon dysfunction. The manual therapy skills practiced will assist with promoting normal function while decreasing the potential risk of further injury. Differential diagnosis laboratory sessions, along with key examination techniques to analyze gait and functional mobility, will provide the essential skills needed to identify altered movement patterns within the ankle, knee, hip and lumbar spine. This approach demonstrates the importance of understanding of how synergistic movement is necessary within the lumbar spine and lower extremities to maintain functional, healthy movement patterns and to avoid compensatory motions that can contribute to long-term injury.
Conference Objectives are :
• Identify anatomical structures and normal biomechanical motion of the hip, lumbar spine and lower quarter.
• Apply etiological and physiological concepts as they pertain to the hip, lower quarter and lumbar spine function while recognizing signs and symptoms associated with various conditions.
• Implement a systematic approach to gait assessment and describe common impairments throughout the lower kinetic chain that can lead to movement dysfunction.
• Establish and integrate an accurate treatment classification category into a comprehensive program for treatment of lumbopelvic disorders.
• Perform a differential diagnosis examination to rule out: lumbar stenosis, lumbar facet dysfunction, lumbar strain, lumbar disc herniation, hip bursitis, gluteal tendinitis, piriformis syndrome, ITB Friction Syndrome, patellofemoral pain syndrome, patellar tendinitis, achilles tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, posterior tibialis tendon dysfunction.
• Plan and implement an evidence-based assessment for the lumbopelvic region and correlating structures based on a biomechanical assessment of the lower extremity and trunk.
• Justify and perform specific mobilizations and manipulations to the lumbar spine, and lower quarter.
• Incorporate clinical reasoning skills and evidence based research when analyzing the results from a movement analysis examination as it pertains to lower extremity and lumbar dysfunction.
• Develop a progressive exercise program to decrease pain and promote biomechanically optimal motion within the lumbar spine and lower quarter.
Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
