This past weekend, 17 of our fantastic therapist took a course titled, “Movement system syndromes of the cervical spine and shoulder: interaction and evidence,” by Shirley Sahrmann PT, PhD, FAPTA. Dr. Sahrmann is a pioneer in the research on movement. In her courses, the attending therapist learns what ideal movement is in the body. When people move in ways that deviate from normal, degeneration of the body can occur and this can lead to pain and disability. Using Dr. Sahrmann’s approach, our therapists can dig deep and get to the actual cause of the pain and disability, addressing it at the root of the problem. This will lead to better, more specific treatment, better home exercises to prevent a recurrence of the symptoms.
