This seminar emphasizes the interpretation of basic science knowledge and the development of basic clinical skills which are needed to complete a differential evaluation of lower extremity dysfunction, then proceeds to treatment. General principles of functional anatomy, tissue and joint biomechanics, pathology, and treatment are presented.
The clinical content of the seminar includes physical examination, with special emphasis on performance of joint mobility and
assessment of end-feel. Non-thrust manipulations are instructed. Supportive treatments are discussed.

Learning Objectives:
At the completion of this seminar the attendee should be able to:
• Perform the steps of the differential evaluation for the detection of lower extremity dysfunction
• Interpret the results of the differential evaluation
• Identify a treatment approach based on the positive findings of the differential evaluation
• Select (when appropriate) basic non-thrust manipulation techniques
• Relate the significance of pain to the patient’s dysfunction, behavior and treatment approach
• Discuss and contrast the effects of mobility and immobility
• Discuss the effects of manipulation in terms of psychological, mechanical and neurophysiological effects
• Discuss the indications and contraindications for joint manipulation of the lower extremity.
