Altered lower-quarter mechanics are frequently implicated as being contributory to various musculoskeletal conditions. An understanding of how abnormal limb function can contribute to the mechanisms of specific joint dysfunction is essential for the evaluation and treatment of common orthopedic disorders. This evidence-based course will use focused laboratory sessions to review the anatomy and mechanics of the lower-kinetic chain, particularly in relation to specific pathologies of the ankle, knee, and hip. Emphasis will be placed on current research findings in the areas of gait analysis, lower-limb function, and joint biomechanics. Implications for the evaluation and treatment of various musculoskeletal conditions also will be addressed. Attendees will be provided with practical information to take back to the clinic, including the opportunity to develop observational gait analysis skills.
Upon completion of this course, you'll be able to:
