Course Description and content
This lecture is presented by Prof. Dr. Donald A. Neumann, physiotherapist, author, scholar, and teacher. Prof. Dr. Neumann provides the foundations of muscle-and-joint kinesiology of the shoulder, based primarily from his international bestselling Kinesiology textbook: Neumann DA: Kinesiology of the Musculoskeletal System: Foundations for Physical Rehabilitation, 3rd edition (Elsevier 2017 - translated in 7 languages).
Prof. Dr. Donald A. Neumann will provide a wide range of basic science and clinical information, from detailed joint structure to muscle.
The evidence-based anatomic and kinesiologic principles discussed in this course will provide a foundation for a wide range of clinical practices through the demonstration of assessment and treatment techniques, from pediatrics to geriatrics, from both neurologic and orthopaedic perspectives.
Details and learning goals
Prof. Dr. Neumann’s course is presented through lecture and demonstration, enhanced by videos of cadaver dissections and gait animations. In addition, the presentation shows unique teaching models and many original anatomic and kinesiologic illustrations. The illustrations clearly describe the anatomic and mechanical basis for ideal and abnormal movement and posturing of the hip and lumbar spine.
After this course, participants shall be able to:
- Understand the functional architecture of the proximal femur and acetabulum.
- Understand the role of the ligaments and capsule of the hip in providing stability to the joint.
- Describe hip kinematics from both a femoral-on-pelvic and pelvic-on-femoral perspectives.
- Understand the inter-relationships between movement and muscle actions of the hip and lumbar spine.
- Cite primary functional role of the muscles of the hip, including how their function of each can be altered by biomechanical and physiologic variables (such as length, joint position, or leverage).
- Understand how the position and stability of the hip influences the posture of the trunk and lower limb.
- Understand the important role of the hip abductor muscles in generating forces and stability at the hip.
