Course description:

The virtual introductory course consists of lectures and related research about movement system impairment (MSI) syndromes of the lumbar spine. Participants will be required to view a series of pre-recorded lectures describing the MSI concepts, principles, best available evidence, and the role of abdominals. During the course, the content of the lecture will be reviewed and applied to the lumbar spine. Specific syndromes of the lumbar spine will be described.  The systematic examination for lumbar movement system impairment syndrome is available to study prior to the course in the pre-recorded videos, and the specific tests will be demonstrated with live subjects during the course.  Systematic examination as well as the relationships of the specific test results to the diagnosis and treatment program will be described.  The role of the hip as a contributing factor to lumbar spine dysfunction will be discussed. Video demonstration of the examination of patients with low back pain will be presented. Participants will be able to interact with the presenters and participate in smaller breakout rooms to practice skills in examination and diagnosis.

Course objectives:

  1. Describe the kinesiopathological model, concepts and principles of movement system impairment syndromes.
  2. Describe the adaptations of muscle, nerve, and bone associated with repeated movements and sustained alignments.
  3. Describe the concepts of relative flexibility, relative stiffness, and motor learning as determinants of the path of least resistance which is associated with changes in precision of movement.
  4. Understand the importance of a systemic examination which includes specific tests and task analysis.
  5. Recognize impaired alignment and movement patterns of the lumbar spine.
  6. Identify the interaction of the hip and lumbar spine.
  7. Recognize movement system impairment syndromes associated with painful conditions of the lumbar spine.
  8. Be able to identify the contributing factors to the lumbar movement system impairment syndrome.
  9. Describe how the results of the examination guide the development of a treatment program with an emphasis on task performance.
