Purpose

This course is a lab intensive introduction to the Functional Manual Therapy® system of management for the knee. Through lecture and demonstration, the participant will gain a better understanding of anatomical and biomechanical presentation of efficient knee function, and the interdependence between knee function and healthy motions of the foot/ankle and the hip.

With the recognition that the knee is greatly influenced by the motions of the entire lower extremity, the participants will be guided through functional evaluations and assessments to identify key dysfunctions of the lower extremity to better guide interventions aimed at enhancing knee function. The participants will first be guided through select interventions for the foot and ankle and the hip prior to systematically working through an extensive series of direct treatments to the knee and surrounding structures, all with a focus on restoring a more optimal state of function to the lower extremity.

Participants will be instructed to utilize the Functional Manual Therapy® clinical reasoning system for examination, evaluation, and development of a plan of care for management of the patient with decreased function secondary to mechanical capacity, neuromuscular function and motor control impairments of the knee. Through demonstration and supervised lab sessions, the participant will implement an appropriate plan of care, and utilize Functional Mobilization techniques to treat the identified dysfunctions. This course includes supervised and systematic pre and post functional and structural assessment to determine the effectiveness of the selected intervention.
