Kyle Kiesel, PT, PhD, ATC
Dr. Kiesel is an Professor and Chair of Physical Therapy at University of Evansville. His areas of research include motor control of the core and functional movement testing and training. Because of his long-standing interest in athletic performance, injury prediction and recovery, his research has also led to significant work related to functional movement screening,…Read full bio
1. Why a Functional Approach
Identify the number one predictor of future musculoskeletal injury. Discuss the contributing factors to suboptimal outcomes for return to sport after injury and rehabilitation. List and discuss the necessary variables for correctly identifying individuals at risk for future injury. List the components of a Standardized Operating Procedure for identifying future injury risk.
2. Pain Changes Movement
Describe how pain alters motor control. Appreciate how altered muscle activation influences mechanical behavior. Recognize that currently there is a lack of standardized clinical movement assessment for individuals in pain.
3. Clinical Movement Assessment
Define and ascribe the basic classifications of movement patterns in the Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA). Identify the Top Tier Test of the SFMA and recognize scoring criteria for each test.
4. The Movement Diagnosis: An Introduction to Breaking Down Dysfunctional Movement Patterns
Define and apply the concepts of differential diagnosis as used in the SFMA: Mobility & Stability, Unilateral & Bilateral, Loaded & Unloaded, Active & Passive, Consistent & Inconsistent. Define and apply the Stop Light System of score the SFMA Breakouts. List and discuss the “4 Rules of the SFMA” Treatment hierarchy.
