Lumbar Spine and Hip (17 punten CKR)
This 3-day course provides instruction in the concepts and application of the examination, diagnosis, and treatment of movement system impairment syndromes. The neuromusculoskeletal adaptations associated with these syndromes are also discussed. Participants receive instruction and supervised practice with the specific tests that constitute the movement examination the Low Back and Hip regions, and learn how to integrate the results of the tests to determine a diagnosis.
After completing these courses, you will understand how to determine a MSI diagnosis based on the examination results, and understand how to apply movement system concepts to prescribe a treatment program.
Key points of this course:
- Describe the standards for ideal alignment and identify structural variations of the spine and pelvis.
- Describe the standards for the normal ranges of the motions of the spine.
- Identify the contributions of each abdominal muscle to the movements and to the stability of the trunk and pelvis and prescribe appropriate exercises.
- Understand the characteristics of each movement impair- ment syndrome of the low back.
- Perform an examination of the patient with low back pain, consider the contributing factors, and establish a diagnosis.
- Develop and instruct the patient in a diagnosis-specific intervention program of exercise and modification of life activities, which contributed to formation of the movement impairment syndrome.
- Describe acquired postural impairments and structural varia- tions of the lower extremity that contribute to movement impairment syndromes.
- Identify the specific muscle actions related to movement impairments of the hip.
- Recognize the differences between diagnoses named for physiologic movement and those named for accessory movements of the hip.
- Identify the characteristics of each movement impairment syndrome of the hip.
In treating the patient with hip pain, the reader will be able to:
- Perform an examination, consider the contributing factors, and establish a diagnosis.
- Develop and instruct the patient in a diagnosis-specific treatment program and modification of the life activities, which contribute to the formation of the movement impairment syndrome.
