Pre-Recorded Sessions

​Speaker

Lucas Dutil, LAT, ATC, CES, CISSN
Athletic Trainer/Sports Medicine Instructor - William Campbell HS

 

Presentation Title

Joint Mobilizations

 

Session Objectives:

  1. Discuss what constitutes a joint mobilization

  2. Help us understand the convex-concave rule

  3. Apply specific joint mobilization techniques to improve various conditions  

 

Lucas provided the following tips for practicing and preparing for the pre-recorded demonstration session:

  1. The speaker encourages students to practice on different people so you can get a sense of how the mobilizations feel on different body types and also to get a sense of how much pressure has to be applied, etc.  

  2. Using a belt can be helpful for the hip mobilizations, and using a wedge or a towel can be beneficial for the knee and ankle mobilizations.

  3. Assess/"test" the patient before performing the mobilizations and then "re-test" following the mobilizations. This is helpful for clinicians to know whether or not the mobilization was useful for that particular patient and situation.  The "test" could be a lot of things but might include: walking, performing a squat, measurable range of motion, etc., it all just depends on the situation.
