Functional Movement for Injury Prevention -Assessment (Lv 1)

Understanding movement and compensation patterns associated with injury can improve rehabilitation outcomes.  Following an injury, or when experiencing pain, movement alters.  This compensation has been shown to further increase injury risk, of which these factors are modifiable.  In this practical workshop, you will learn how to assess, and grade patterns of motion based on common musculoskeletal and orthopaedic disorders.  As well as prescribe exercises to improve and maintain movement quality.  

Please note, this workshop was presented nationally by ESSA in 2017 and 2018.
