We'll show you how the lower body is a huge driver of upper body function and performance.
The forces transmitted from the ground through the feet and up to the pelvis are supported by and distributed through the muscles of the trunk.
Join us to see how we examine the lower body and make recommendations for therapeutic movement.
In this clinical assessment course, you will:
Walkthrough the palpation of major landmarks of lower body surface anatomy
Review a postural screen including major landmark palpation and common faults requiring more in depth assessment
Understand simple functional movement screens in sitting, standing and lying to identify pattern mastery and trouble spots requiring assessment
Set up assessment priorities based on postural screen, balance evaluation, gait review and functional screens
Review the most common injuries and the possible movement impairments that may result from compensation strategies
Understand the role fascia plays in pain and motor pattern generation, particularly in the lower body
You can view all the course material including the videos on your laptop, desktop or phone.
