Movement System Diagnosis – Application to Patients with Mobility Deficits

09/15/2017 8:30 AM - 4:15 PM
Des Moines University, 3200 Grand Avenue, Olsen Center, Des Moines, IA 50266
TARGET AUDIENCE
Physical therapists, physical therapy assistants, and students. 
 
DESCRIPTION
The Movement System has been identified as the foundation of physical therapy practice and yet our systematic description of movement system problems has been limited. This course will focus on the only set of Movement System diagnoses developed for use with patients with neuromuscular conditions. The course will include descriptions of common patterns observed in practice, examination strategies including movement analysis of critical tasks, and linkages between intervention research and the Movement System diagnoses.
 
LEARNING OBJECTIVES
Explain how the movement system can be used to sort patients into categories that are meaningful for practice and research. 
Perform a movement analysis of critical tasks using a systematic process and video examples. 
Determine a Movement System Diagnosis by matching descriptions of diagnostic categories with video examples.
Select evidence-based interventions for patients with different Movement System Diagnoses and discuss considerations for selected interventions to specific diagnoses.
