From Movement to Function – Investigating Muscle Tests for the Upper Limb

This is an afternoon workshop led by Earle Abrahamson & Jane Langston

The way we move is often underpinned by how our muscles function. Movement dysfunction provides a roadmap for assessment of the musculoskeletal system. This involves careful consideration of movement ranges, resistance to movement, and functional ability. How best should we study and examine movement function?

This practical workshop draws together anatomical, palpation and functional testing techniques. Building on the initial muscle testing workshops from the last MTI conference, attendees will explore the functional anatomy of selected upper limb muscles, learn different muscle testing techniques, and develop an appreciation for how muscle activation works. Functional understanding of musculoskeletal anatomy is essential for planning and delivering effective massage therapy.

This workshop is open to both students and practitioners who wish to further develop their musculoskeletal anatomy and learn different assessment and testing techniques for the upper limb.

What to bring: –

  1. Comfortable clothing
  2. Pens and paper for note-taking
