Course Description:

This online course incorporates biomechanical, movement and sport-specific based assessments to treat the
upper quarter athlete. Treatments are based on concepts of anatomical slings and neuromuscular
chains. Muscle facilitation, reflexive activation, dual vectors and the functional use of CLX resistance bands are incorporated to facilitate sport-specific exercises.

Course Objectives:
Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
  • Learn the biomechanics and sport specific demands of upper quarter sports.
  • Understand the importance of regional interdependence of the upper quarter and its functional relationship to pathobiomechanics.
  • Demonstrate and select appropriate movement assessments and treatments for the upper quarter athlete.
  • Provide interventions based on faulty movement patterns and observed and relate to key impairments obtained from the objective exam.
  • Learn current research supporting movement and sport-specific assessments and treatments.

The course grants access to an entire video library of sport specific movement assessments and treatments. Included in this library are videos showing the breakdown of sport specific biomechanics. These videos, shot in slow motion at 120 frames per second will teach you how to identify critical events during the swim stroke, volleyball spike, tennis serve, baseball pitch and rock climbing positions.
