Foundations of Patho-kinesiologic Diagnosis and Mechanical Interventions for the Human Movement System
Description: This one-day course provides a fundamental framework for critical thinking and treatment implementation for non-pathoanatomical diagnosis and treatment of the spine. Key concepts include understanding the use of movement systems and mechanical loading for the means of diagnosis to guide treatment. Understanding individual differences in patient pain perception, and empowering patients to take an active role in reducing pain is emphasized throughout the course. Evidence that suggests the overuse of anatomical based diagnosis in the field of physical therapy diagnosis will also be reviewed in this course. The overall goal of this course is to teach clinicians how to identify a pathokinesiology diagnosis and to describe the benefits of using a using homogeneous, human movement classification system for diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal conditions.
