In these times of changing health care, it is common to have less time/visits with our patients. The challenge to the clinician is continuing to provide excellent quality care, assess problems, and meet goals within this new clinical environment. Analyzing movement patterns is an excellent tool in determining problems and optimizing functional outcomes. Movement analysis is a crucial component of any rehab program, but proficiency requires practice. This course is designed to provide the clinician practice to augment their ability to provide proficient movement analysis. Detailed anatomy review is incorporated into this course as the participant looks at examples of exercises and functional activities from the vantage point of the muscular system. Video examples will be a primary teaching method in this program.
