After working with my patients this morning, the team of physical therapist and athletic trainers from Los Gatos Orthopedic Sport Therapy went over to West Valley College to perform the musculoskeletal exam for the incoming athletes.
The musculoskeletal exam included:
Global Inspection = Posture assessment
SFMA = Movement assessment, including cervical, thoracic, and lumbar
Scan Exam = Active ROM, Passive ROM, and Strength test
Special test = Examine specific tissues that are commonly injured
Educate = Talk with athletes about findings and their importance
