Restoring Functional Movement of the Lower Extremity Banner

Restoring Functional Movement of the Lower Extremity

Featuring Jennifer Camhi PT, DPT, OCS, ATC

This course provides a unique view into common movement patterns of the lower extremity that are an integral part of both everyday and sport activity. These movement patterns are evident across all populations regardless of age and ability. Often patients develop dysfunction and compensatory patterns that alter these basic movements. This course will teach how to properly assess and retrain lower extremity movement patterns, as well as how to apply them to training patients for return to functional activity. Participants will gain knowledge of how to decrease risk for injury of the lower extremity and additionally improve functional performance. The course will provide an interactive learning atmosphere utilizing didactic lecture, but predominantly focusing on lab demonstration and active participation. Corrective strategies will emphasize exercise progressions and regressions to create a tailored approach to fit each patient’s needs. Participants with either limited or advanced experience with movement patterns will learn techniques that can be immediately applied to their clinical practice.


Who should attend? Physical Therapist, Physical Therapists Assistants, Athletic Trainers, Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS)


Upon successful completion of this course, the practitioner will learn how to:


  •  Understand and discuss how functional movement applies to the rehab client, and what types of rehab clients will benefit from movement retraining

  •  Discuss the core and it’s role as it relates to functional posture and movement

  •  Understand kinetic linking and discuss injury risk relative to energy leaks, including the cause and source of clinical symptoms

  •  Understand common compensatory patterns exhibited with lower extremity movement patterns, and how they relate to injury

  •  Identify compensatory dysfunctions through observation of static and dynamic movement patterns

  •  Demonstrate understanding of exercise progressions and regressions for promotion of functional single-leg stability

  •  Understand and discuss the relationship of the lower quarter, the core, and the upper quarter as they relate together for the production of kinetic linking and functional movement
