Movement System Impairment Syndromes Courses

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


The MSI syndromes were developed by Shirley Sahrmann, PT, PhD and her colleagues. These syndromes are described in her books, Diagnosis and Treatment of Movement Impairment Syndromes and Movement System Impairment Syndromes of the Extremities, Cervical and Thoracic Spine.

Our MSI courses teach you to identify faulty alignment, movement patterns, and muscle imbalances using observation of movement as well as muscle length and strength testing. You will also learn how to alleviate and prevent mechanical musculoskeletal pain through treatment focused on the restoration of optimal alignment and appropriate movement patterns.
