Functional Mobilization™ Upper Quadrant

July 18, 2019 - July 21, 2019

IPA’s Functional Mobilization™ Upper Quadrant (“FMUQ”) course focuses on evaluation and treatment of upper quadrant functional capacity. This course includes management of airways efficiency. The course presents the dynamic principles and procedures of Functional MobilizationTM as an evaluation and treatment component of the Functional Manual Therapy® treatment model. This approach couples active and resisted movement (PNF) with soft tissue and joint mobilization, to facilitate normalization of mechanical, neuromuscular, and motor control dysfunctions. The participant is trained to evaluate each movement segment through the use of PNF patterns and to combine the selective pattern into the full trunk and extremity patterns. Instruction will emphasize the treatment of both hypomobile structures and the stabilization of hypermobile segments with prolonged holds to promote activation of the core muscle’s contraction. FMUQ course participation prerequisites include Functional Mobilization™ I (FM I) and Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation I (PNF I). Students must be licensed Physical Therapists, PT students, PTAs, or OTs. The FMUQ course is taught throughout the year in various locations nationwide.
