Movement system impairment syndromes of the extremities, cervical, and thoracic spines.


Movement system impairment syndromes of the extremities, cervical, and thoracic spines.

Ed. by Shirley Sahrmann.

Elsevier Mosby


547 pages




For physical therapists and other musculoskeletal healthcare practitioners, Sahrmann (physical therapy, neurology, cell biology and physiology, Washington U. in St. Louis), along with other physical therapists from Washington U., details a method to analyze the mechanical causes of movement system impairment syndromes, determine their contributing factors, and plan a management strategy that is specific to the extremities, cervical, and thoracic spines. They describe parts of the movement system and processes resulting in musculoskeletal pain syndromes, movement system syndromes, the importance of assessing alignment, and movement patterns and effects on other body segments, with an aim to promote the importance of using diagnostic labels for dysfunctions, create awareness that these syndromes are part of a progressive condition, and relate the importance of monitoring the development and function of the movement system throughout the lifespan.
