Movement System 2 - Task Analysis In Neurologic Physical Therapy Webinar
This framework is designed for utilization by students and practicing physical therapists to systematically and consistently analyze movement during task performance. In doing so, we hope to strengthen the emphasis on movement analysis in everyday practice, develop more consistency in examination procedures, and ultimately to improve the ability of physical therapists to utilize movement analyses as one component of developing movement system diagnoses.
1. Describe and discuss a framework for movement observation and analysis.
2. Demonstrate application of the framework as part of a physical therapy examination.
3. Discuss how the framework contributes to developing movement system diagnoses.
4. Discuss implications for implementation into entry-level curricula and clinical practice.
