Evaluation of lower limb movement impairments and prescription of exercise interventions for various musculoskeletal conditions will be addressed.

At the conclusion of the course the participant will be able to:

1. Describe common movement impairments associated with various lower extremity injuries.

2. Perform a functional movement assessment for persons who have a lower extremity injury.
