Off-Campus - 8:00 AM - 3:30 PM
Using lecture and demonstration, this course will provide an update of the concepts and principles used to determine a movement system diagnosis and to provide diagnosis-directed treatment of pre-arthritic hip disease. Bony and ligamentous abnormalities associated with femoroacetabular impingement (FAI) and structural instability will be presented. Muscle performance impairments in force production and activation will be discussed as they relate to movement system diagnoses of the hip. The course will emphasize the determination of a movement system diagnosis, based on a clinical examination to assess movements and postures observed during exam items and performance of functional activities. Selection and performance of corrective exercises and functional activities will be discussed and demonstrated.
