Lower Extremity Evaluation and Treatment
SEA: April 9 - 11, 2021

PDF Class Notebook
16 CEUs
$500 In-Person / $375 via Zoom

Course Description:

Neural and biomechanical integration of the foot, ankle, knee, and hip is integral to proper function of the lower extremity in the gait cycle. These structures are particularly detailed in their arthrokinematic, fascial, and dynamic force relationships. This course provides the participant with an extensive knowledge of these areas and how to treat dysfunction of the lower extremity as it relates to weight-bearing activities.​

The hip, knee, ankle, sub-talar, calcaneal, navicular, cuboid joints and the first / second versus fourth and fifth rays interact in complex ways to allow the diversity of human stance, gait, and activity.

This class will provide the practitioner the ability to mechanically assess / observe the patient's movement competence through clinical tests and develop an appropriate manual treatment regimen to optimize and improve that patient's relevant lack of range of motion and aberrant motor programming to return to full function.

Learning Objectives

Upon course completion, the participant will be able to-

1) Palpate the discrete structures of the lumbar spine, pelvis, and lower extremity;

2) Ask appropriate patient history questions that take into account new, research-based understanding of lumbopelvic function;

3) Identify, palpate and test motion or irritation of the lumbopelvis to include joints, capsules, muscles, fascia, blood vessels, and lymphatic tissue. 

4) Demonstrate various treatment strategies such as Muscle Energy Technique, Counterstrain-positional release, Neurolymphatic and Neurovascular Techniques, and NeuroDynamic Reintegration© (NDR©). 

5) Perform appropriate Global and Regional provocation tests for the lumbopelvis and lower extremity. 

6) Apply a specific Home Exercise Program based on objectively assessed neuromuscular imbalance and somatic dysfunction. 

Materials Provided: A binder of the course materials will be provided to each student to follow along and take notes during the lecture and lab portions of the class.

Purpose: The purpose of this class is to provide the clinical practitioner with the knowledge of how recent research has changed current clinical treatment approaches to the biomechanical pelvis and lower extremity. 

Expected outcomes are to develop effective delineation and treatment strategies based upon an integration of new information and the extensive body of knowledge of the anatomy, physiology, and embryology of the lumbopelvis. This class will enhance participant learning through the use of discussion, audio-visual materials, recent research evidence, and extensive lab-based learning.
