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

Overview

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.

We provide a certificate of completion that includes contact hours, course description, course objectives, and list of speakers. Course participants will need to check their own state board’s requirement for acceptance of the course to fulfill licensure renewal CEUs. If the participant requires additional documentation to meet his or her state board licensure requirements, an additional administration fee will be assessed.
