Kyle Kiesel

PT, PhD

Dr. Kiesel is a professor of physical therapy at the University of Evansville and a cofounder of the Functional Movement System. During his 20 years in academics, he has spent nine years directing programs in athletic training and physical therapy. His areas of research include motor control of the core, breathing, and functional movement testing and training. Because of his long-standing interest in athletic performance, injury prediction, and recovery, his research has also led to significant work related to functional movement screening, testing, and assessment for athletes. He has authored more than 40 peer-reviewed publications and regularly presents his work nationally and internationally, in addition to reviewing manuscripts for a variety of journals. He serves as a consultant for professional and college sports teams as well as the military, where he assists with injury prevention and implementation of the Functional Movement System model. He has extensive experience teaching lecture and lab courses emphasizing core training and functional movement assessment and intervention, including both the Functional Movement Screen (FMS) and the Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA), and he has taught in approximately 20 different countries.

Low back pain (LBP) continues to be the primary source of years lived with disability worldwide and a challenge and source of frustration for clinicians who treat patients with chronic low back pain (CLBP). Rehabilitation providers have seen a variety of updated models and treatment techniques over recent years, such as pain neuroscience education. There have been updated approaches from the medical perspective as well. This course reviews recent updates in the treatment of CLBP from the medical field, including a novel application of restorative neuromodulation targeting low back muscle dysfunction.

Video Runtime: 57 Minutes; Learning Assessment Time: 23 Minutes

Rehabilitation providers often have difficulty implementing evidence in patient care. Patients, clients, coaches, or referral sources depend on rehabilitation providers to address tough questions regarding patient outcomes, but all providers may not be up-to-date with the current recommendations based on the literature. The goal of this course is to provide real-world application of the research in clinical practice by addressing common questions that rehabilitation professionals may have in a variety of areas.
This course will address common evidence-based practice questions to better prepare athletic trainers and other providers to educate their patients and design optimal rehabilitation programs to improve outcomes. The questions addressed in this course include

1) Does graft type influence your rehabilitation process after ACL reconstruction?
2) What factors influence the decision-making process of whether patients with a lumbar spondylolisthesis should be braced?
3) Are group-based arm care programs effective at reducing injury incidence?

Sports medicine professionals who evaluate and treat athletes with low back pain (LBP) should clearly identify a directional preference (flexion or extension) to complement the associated medical diagnosis. In the case of an extension-oriented problem, imaging should be obtained to allow for accurate classification of any bony lesion present. Staging of lumbar spondylolysis to include early, progressive, or terminal needs to be considered to best form a plan of care and return-to-sport target date. Rehabilitation efforts should include standard core stabilization, and an emphasis should be placed on identifying and correcting common movement impairments often not identified in routine LBP care. Finally, discharge testing should include clearing known movement-oriented risk factors to maximize the probability of a successful return to sport and minimization of reinjury.

Musculoskeletal (MSK) disorders are the number one expense for health insurance companies today, and they are on the rise. Clinically recognizable movement-oriented risk factors have been identified in recent research. Clinicians must understand the contributing factors to suboptimal outcomes and be able to identify MSK risk factors in their patients. In this course, the importance of creating a standardized operating procedure for identifying risk factors is outlined, and learners will recognize that currently there is a lack of standardized clinical movement assessments for individuals in pain. Evidence-based movement screening and testing is discussed, and the Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA) is introduced. This includes the basic classifications of movement patterns, the Top Tier Tests, and scoring criteria for each test. The course will define and apply the concepts of movement diagnosis to help clinicians determine whether a patient has a mobility problem or a motor control problem.

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.
