Brief Description

Shirley Sahrmanns’ Movement System Impairment Syndrome (MSI) courses offer the opportunity to learn how to properly observe, identify and treat impairments of the movement system.

Course Description:

In this course, participants will gain knowledge and skills to develop a structured approach to diagnosis and treatment of patients with movement system impairment syndromes (MSI).   You will learn to identify faulty alignment, movement patterns, and muscle imbalances using observation of movement as well as muscle length and strength testing.  Through this method, the root cause of the patient’s complaints is addressed, rather than treating the symptoms alone.   The course provides both theoretical and supervised practical instruction in the respective body regions.

Course Goals:

  • Discuss the basis of the movement system and movement system impairment syndromes (MSI) of the shoulder and neck
  • Describe causal and contributing factors in MSI of the shoulder and neck
  • Describe how to formulate a diagnosis and place a patient into the proper diagnostic category
  • Describe the diagnostic categories for the cervical spine, scapula, and humerus
  • Describe and perform the standardized examination format for the cervical spine, scapula, and humerus
  • Describe the specific corrective exercises and their progressions for the neck and cervical spine
