Functional Biomechanics of the Lower Quarter: Implications for Movement Dysfunction and Musculoskeletal Injury

August 12-13 • Sacramento, CA

Altered lower quarter mechanics are frequently implicated as being contributory to various musculoskeletal conditions. An understanding of how abnormal limb function can contribute to the mechanisms of specific joint dysfunction is essential for the evaluation and treatment of common orthopaedic disorders. Presented by Christopher M Powers, PT, PhD, FAPTA, FASCM, this evidence-based course will review the anatomy and mechanics of the lower kinetic chain, particularly in relation to specific pathologies of the ankle, knee and hip. Emphasis will be placed on current research findings in the areas of gait analysis, lower limb function, and joint biomechanics. Implications for the evaluation and treatment of various musculoskeletal conditions also will be addressed.
