Movement Analysis of the Functional Fitness Athlete

This two-day course will prepare the orthopaedic physical therapist to address the orthopedic needs of Functional Fitness athletes. Movement analysis and treatment related to weightlifting, gymnastics and metabolic conditioning movements will be covered, in addition to common movement faults seen in recreational and elite Functional Fitness Athletes.

Guided lab will allow for additional hands-on experience in Examination and treatment that
covers lower quarter, upper quarter and trunk.
