This course series is a practical interpretation of balance research with real-world applications supporting current evidence. This lecture is Part three of a three-part series describing and applying the Domains Approach to balance. This section will cover the final two domains: stability during gait and sitting and the biomechanical elements that affect balance. Standardized tests that can be utilized to test each of these domains will be presented as well as treatment interventions ideas.

1. Stability During Gait and Sitting

Comparisons of balance strategies between sitting and standing will be covered. Standardized tests that are appropriate o test this domain will be covered. Suggestions for treatment strategies for each area will be discussed and documentation examples presented.

2. Biomechanical Strength and Power

The most common areas of weakness that directly affect balance will be covered. Evidence specific to the geriatric population will be the focus of this section. Treatment ideas and documentation examples will also be covered, as well as best tests and standardized measures to evaluate this domain.

3. Range of Motion and Posture: The Evidence

Chapter three outlines how range of motion is correlated with balance dysfuncion. Evaluation and treatment suggestions as well as documentation examples will be provided.

4. Endurance: the Evidence and Clinical Application

Evidence is presented on how deficits in this area directly affect balance. Evaluation and treatment suggestions as well as documentation examples will be provided.
