    Functional Biomechanics of the Lower Quarter: Implications for the Evaluation and Treatment of Musculoskeletal Disorders, Part 1

    Location: Hilton Bayfront |Cobalt 500

    Time: 8:00 am - 5:00 pm (See Program for Room)

    Speakers: Christopher M. Powers, PT, PhD, FAPTA

    Level: Intermediate

    CEUs: 1.6 (16.0 contact hours/CCUs)

    Preconference Pricing: Standard Plus (2B) 2 Day

    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:

    • Describe the normal anatomy and biomechanics of the foot/ankle, knee, and hip.
    • Describe the normal joint kinematics, kinetics, and muscle actions during walking and running.
    • Describe the normal interaction of the hip, knee, ankle, and foot during walking and running.
    • Describe pathological lower-chain mechanics and segment interactions.
    • Identify the pathomechanics of common disorders of the foot/ankle, knee and hip.
    • Develop observational gait analysis skills.
    • Discuss the current research literature related to lower-extremity biomechanics and pathomechanics.
    • Perform a biomechanical evaluation of the lower extremity.
    • Plan appropriate treatment interventions based on a biomechanical assessment of the lower extremity.
