Program Description

The purpose of this educational program is to provide a comprehensive, integrated approach of the overhead athlete, emphasizing new biomechanical research of the kinetic chain, as well as corresponding assessment and treatment methods, based on current evidence. Attendees will gain a greater understanding of current research on the biomechanics of the throwing motion, with emphasis on how the motion and sequencing of both proximal and distal segments of the kinetic chain directly applied to clinical practice.
