Joint Mobility vs Tissue Extensibility Dysfunction: Differentiated Using Logic
Written by Brandon Bennett Friday, March 21, 2014 SFMA
Mobility dysfunctions are seldom differentiated appropriately and the practitioner is often found treating the same problems repeatedly. We need to differentiate mobility dysfunctions into joint mobility vs tissue extensibility dysfunctions, and more importantly, strive to prioritize primary versus secondary dysfunctions in order to produce optimal results.
This will be a case based presentation, using the SFMA logic to arrive at local biomechanical examinations to differentiate and prioritize mobility dysfunctions. Participants should expect an interactive, thought-provoking session. The SFMA practitioner will have an opportunity to view how mobility driven green box strategies are diagnosed and intervened.
