ASSESSMENT AND TREATMENT OF THE LOWER EXTREMITY – A MANUAL THERAPY APPROACH
September 18 - September 20
BOC Advanced Level
The goal of this class is to present concepts of how the body uses ground forces in the kinetic chain, and produces motion in the walk cycle. We will cover the fascial planes and how they transmit forces from the ground to the cranium.
Patterns of adaption will be discussed and the clinician will learn different approaches to biomechanical dysfunctions and how they relate to the health of the body.
The understanding of the specific nuances of each segmental motion pattern in both normal and abnormal gait will be discussed. Laboratory time will reflect concepts presented in lecture and treatment will be demonstrated.
By course end, the student should be able to correctly analyze common dysfunctions seen in the process of human locomotion and be able to devise and apply techniques for the correction of these dysfunctions.
The student will be guided through drills and lectures so that they may collect the necessary information to accomplish these tasks in a short period of time and be able to use this material in their clinical practices.

At the conclusion of the presentation, the participant should be able to:
- Identify the concepts and components of somatic dysfunction that are involved in the long and short levers affecting the pelvic girdle.
- Differentiate between normal and abnormal biomechanical function of the locomotor system.
- Formulate a working knowledge of how the pelvis, lower extremity and upper extremity affects the overall biomechanics of the walk cycle. And, use this model in organizing an assessment and treatment plan.
- Assess the implications of complex somatic dysfunction in the same areas in order to provide appropriate treatment.
- Apply Manual Techniques to change the areas of somatic dysfunction.
Target Audience: Healthcare providers including, but not limited to: MD,DO,PT,AT,DC,MT,RN,OT, and other licensed or certified healthcare providers.
