Dynamic Movement Assessment Course in Pensacola, Florida
Don't Miss Out on This Destination Location Course.
When: June 29th - 30th
Where: The Andrews Institute
To Register: Dynamic Movement Course
Level I - Fundamentals of Movement is a 2 day course presented by Trent Nessler, PT. During this course, participants will be presented with the latest research on pathokinematics and contributing factors which lead to lower extremity injuries as well as decreases in athletic performance. Trent will also cover the Dynamic Movement Assessment™ (DMA™), a movement system he has developed which uses video technology to capture and quantify human movement. In the course, participants will not only learn about the DMA but also how to interpret the results and positively influence these abnormal movement patterns. Participants will get hands on experience in assessing movement as well as how to use their manual therapy skills and therapeutic exercise to improve motor learning, muscular strength and endurance and proprioception.
Intended Audience: This is course content is structured for PTs, PTAs, ATCs, DCs, Performance Coaches, CSCS, Personal Trainers. This is an advanced course and will be didactic and hands on.
Presenter: Trent Nessler, PT, DPT, MPT
Trent is CEO of Accelerated Conditioning and Learning (A.C.L.), LLC. He has been a physical therapist for over 15 years during which time he has worked with all levels of athletes. He has used his passion for exercise and his clinical expertise to develop research and exercise protocols to improve athletic performance while reducing risk for injuries. He has also authored a textbook Dynamic Movement Assessment™: Enhance Performance and Prevent Injury due to be published in 2013. Trent has been presenting on this topic for over 10 years to organizations including the American Sports Medicine Institute, Andrews Institute, Seattle Mariners, US Olympic Training Center, Professional Baseball Athletic Trainers Society (PBATS), Rocky Mountain Athletic Trainers Association and the APTA’s CSM. He currently sits on the USA Cheer Safety Council and is an associate editor of The International Journal of Athletic Therapy and Training.
Course Objectives: As a result of having participated in this course participants will:
1. Identify and define the components of lower extremity pathokinematics
2. Review current research highlighting the relationship between certain lower extremity movement patterns and injury
3. Practice using a variety of tools to identify lower extremity pathokinematics
4. See Dartfish software and its related technology in use in objectively documenting, assessing, identifying and communicating treatment options for abnormal movement patterns
5. Gain a thorough knowledge of the Dynamic Movement Assessment™ (DMA™) applied with and without technology and its clinical implications
6. Gain a thorough knowledge of how to interpret pathokinematics noted with the DMA™
7. Demonstrate an understanding of appropriate exercise prescriptions based on results and information gained from the Dynamic Movement Assessment™
8. Participate in practical application of the Dynamic Movement Assessment™ with class subjects (video and analysis)
9. Participate in practical application of the exercise program designed to improve deficits noted with the DMA™
10. Discuss the billing strategies, costs and benefits of creating a customer-driven niche practice focused on injury prevention, pain management, sports rehabilitation, and athletic performance enhancement
11. Discuss specific niche markets and DMA™ applications (running assessments, soccer assessments, cheer assessments, shoulder assessments – pitching)
12. Take away step by step instructions for implementing the DMA™ and it’s prescriptive exercise progression using Dartfish technology in a practice.
