Restoring Functional Movement of the Upper Extremity
Featuring Jennifer Camhi PT, DPT, OCS, ATC
This course provides a unique view into common movement patterns of the upper 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, particularly in the overhead ranges of motion. This course will teach how to properly assess upper quarter dysfunction through static and active postural assessment, including the influence of breath and breathing patterns. Corrective strategies will focus on how to retrain movement patterns of the shoulder complex through efficient coaching, cueing, and programming techniques, 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 upper 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:
Appreciate 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, including the fundamental connection between breath, breathing, and posture
Demonstrate knowledge of kinetic linking and discuss injury risk relative to energy leaks, including the cause and source of clinical symptoms, and the influence that posture has on the quality of upper quarter movement patterns
Identify common upper quarter compensatory movement patterns through observation of static and active postural traits, and how they relate to injury and function
Demonstrate understanding of exercise progressions and regressions for promotion of functional overhead shoulder ranges of motion using efficient strategies for coaching, cueing, and programming
Appreciate and discuss the relationship of the upper quarter, the core, and the lower quarter as they relate together for the production of kinetic linking and functional movement.
