This 4-weekend seminar series is designed to provide a deeper understanding of the movement and neuro­muscular approaches in the evaluation and manage­ment of musculoskeletal pain syndromes. Functional regional interdependence between the muscular, os­teoarticular and central nervous system in the regula­tion of movement will be a focus of discussion and practice.

Participants will be trained to perform a systematic evaluation of pos­ture, muscle length, muscle performance and movement patterns to draw relationships between impairments and contributing factors re­sponsible for creating the dysfunction. Clinical reasoning of the eval­uation and management process and its integration with manual orthopedic procedures will be discussed along with extensive hands-on practice and feedback. Additionally, participants will be shown how to analyze complex movements and skills by breaking its component parts down to functional synergies and impairments.

Upon completion of this entire series, participants will have the option to become certified clinicians after a formal testing process.

Target Audience: Limited to Physical Therapists, Physical Therapy Assistants.

“In the last 10 years of my career as a professor and clinician, no continuing education course has more profoundly affected the way I teach and treat than the Movement Links series. As a renowned leader in the field of movement science, Dr. Clare Frank and her team bring a ‘down to earth-use it to­morrow’ approach to optimizing human function.

This course series will bring new life to your career, new hope to your patients, and a new way of think­ing about human movement rehabilitation.”

“The course series has helped me tremendously in my evaluation process and prioritizing treat­ment. As a result of going through this series, I now feel my evaluation is missing something and I don’t get the full picture without doing the movement / func­tional exam. It has also helped in linking the source and cause of a patient presen­tation, as well as changing movement and pos­tural behaviors as treatment.”
