Standardized Task Analysis for Movement System Diagnoses: Application to Individuals With Balance Problems
The development of movement system diagnoses is a top priority of APTA. The Academy of Neurologic Physical Therapy Movement System Task Force is currently working to develop movement system diagnoses for balance dysfunction. In this session, the speakers will describe the updated framework for movement observation and analysis that will form the basis for making movement system diagnoses; present the balance diagnoses and their underlying theoretical rationale; and link the movement system diagnosis to intervention planning. Patient case examples will illustrate the differential diagnostic process based on the patient history, examination, and evaluation.
