Imagine if patients knew when to come into the clinic before experiencing pain or an injury. Could you imagine seeing more patients for wellness instead of just chronic pain and post-op care? What if your patients were directed to you right away at the first onset of pain, rather than waiting months? What if you had something meaningful to give patients at health fairs and community talks that actually directed the type of patients you want into your care?

Modifiable musculoskeletal risk factors have been identified in recent research studies, yet musculoskeletal health continues to rise as the number one expense for health insurance companies. It doesn't have to be this way. Musculoskeletal health care should not only be reactive to pain, but can also be proactive against it. The solution lies in empowering our patients to appreciate their own movement health and movement dysfunction. A self-movement screen that can be used by health care professionals and their patients answers this need. This program covers the background, research, and implementation strategies associated with this self-movement screen--MovePrint. This course is for the musculoskeletal health practitioner who desires to empower patients to understand movement dysfunctions so that they seek health care professionals to help them optimize their musculoskeletal health.

1. Why Manage Risk Factors?

Patients experience pain or an injury that prevents them from doing what they love to do and then they get treatment. In most cases, pain is the only signal patients recognize as a need to get help. But what if they could be more proactive? What if they could anticipate their need for treatment before experiencing a problem?

2. What Risk Factors Are Most Important?

While researchers have identified modifiable musculoskeletal risk factors, patients often do not know how to recognize when they could benefit from treatment. This chapter covers the major risk factors for major musculoskeletal conditions.

3. How Do You Screen Risk Factors Using a Self-Screen?

This chapter covers the development and detail of each component of the self-movement screen. Progression/regression of screens and scoring of the self-screen is discussed in detail including the Deep Squat, Toe Touch, Rotation, Shoulder Mobility, Balance and Reach, Shoulder Extension Clearing, Joint Mobility Testing, and the Breathing Screen.

4. What Do the Results of the Self-Screen Mean?

This chapter will cover the results that your client will receive and the associated recommendations. For example, if there is pain with any component of the self-screen, a health care referral is recommended.
