Accreditation Check:
Kyle Kiesel presents this course on a functional approach to treating movement dysfunction. Understand the contributing factors to suboptimal outcomes and identify the necessary variables for correctly identifying individuals at risk for future injury. The importance of creating a Standardized Operating Procedure for identifying future injury risk is outlined, and learners will recognize that currently there is a lack of standardized clinical movement assessment for individuals in pain. The Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA) is presented, including the basic classifications of movement patterns, the Top Tier Tests, and scoring criteria for each test. Define and apply the concepts of differential diagnosis as used in the SFMA, as well as the Stop Light System of score the SFMA Breakouts and the “4 Rules of the SFMA” Treatment hierarchy.

Chapters & Learning Objectives

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.
