Movement System 3 - Balance Diagnoses in Neurologic Physical Therapy Webinar
The development of movement system diagnoses is a top priority of the APTA. To that end, the Academy of Neurologic Physical Therapy Movement System Task Force has developed an initial set of movement system diagnoses applicable to individuals with balance deficits. In this webinar, the development and descriptions of these proposed diagnostic labels will be presented. Case examples will be used to demonstrate how these balance diagnoses can be applied in practice.
1. Describe and discuss the proposed diagnostic labels and descriptions for balance dysfunction.
2. Explain the rationale underlying the development of the diagnostic labels for balance dysfunction.
3. Discuss how the movement system diagnoses related to balance dysfunction can contribute to clinical decision making.
4. Provide a forum for the audience to comment on and discuss the proposed movement system diagnoses for balance dysfunction.
