Course Description

The course will describe the concepts and principles underlying movement system impairment (MSI) syndromes. The kinesiopathologic model provides a framework for the role of the movement system in causing impairment syndromes. Specific syndromes of the cervical spine, scapula, and humerus  will be discussed. The MSI exam used to diagnose these syndromes and identify the contributing factors will be described. The course includes both lecture and subject demonstrations of the examination. The treatment programs for specific subjects will also be included in the presentation. This course will describe the relationship between shoulder alignment and movement patterns and the effect on the cervical spine. The recent research and the best available evidence concerning movement system syndromes will be presented.
