The assessment (video demo’s)
Part 6: 5 November 2020
The Lower Quarter is an integrated physiological system both anatomically & biomechanically. Assessment & management of lower quarter pain & dysfunction should respect a multitude of co-relationships for best outcomes.
On this course you will learn:
Functional Biomechanics & Clinical Anatomy of the lumbar, pelvis, hip & lower limbs are taught, with an immediate clinical application. Understand anatomy & its clinical relevance to movement function & dysfunction.
To identify abnormal movement patterns, muscle imbalances & local ‘core’ inhibition and interpret their clinical relevance.
Identify risk factors for persistent injuries of the Lower Quarter.
Assess the Lower Quarter in detail with an innovative, quick but comprehensive assessment protocol.
Clinical Reasoning. Acquire skills for predictive reasoning. Learn to prioritize management.
To develop individual-specific treatment & rehabilitation strategies that are evidence-based.
Best exercises for best outcomes: targeted motor control, open & closed chain, stabilisation, progressive functional exercises etc.
Learn how to progress rehabilitation beyond the clinical setting to restore the patient to their ‘pre-injury’ condition
This course is suited for the therapist involved in the treatment of patients with acute, unresolved or persistent pain or dysfunction of Lower quarter origin. Skills taught on this course can be applied equally to the sporty (recreational & elite) as well as the inactive patient, from young children to the elderly.
A revision of the anatomy of the lumbar spine & pelvic girdle is strongly recommended prior to attending this course.
