GLOBAL ASSESSMENT OF EXTREMITIES
Global Assessment of Extremities recognizes the interrelationship and the necessary intimacy of the spine to the extremities. Extremity dysfunction can and does affect the overall performance of the neuromusculoskeletal system. Thus, a “global” method of evaluation, analysis, and management is necessary. Understanding the signs, symptoms, and syndromes in a 'whole body' management format will solidify the practical application of the principles teamed in all prior modules. The most challenging patients are those that improve, but never completely resolve their complaints. Learn basic algorithms that will aid in establishing or reinforcing practical proficiency in management protocols.
This module will be based upon combining the general principles of all prior modules and the specifics of rehabilitation, extremity adjusting, orthotics and stabilization based upon the Council on Extremity Adjusting.
