Speaker: Jared Vagy PT, DPT, OCS, CSCS

Dr. Jared Vagy received his Doctorate in Physical Therapy (DPT) from the University of Southern California (USC). As a Doctor of Physical Therapy in clinical practice, he completed a one-year residency program and became a Board Certified Orthopedic Specialist. He then completed an additional one-year fellowship program in Movement Science at Kaiser Permanente Hospital.

Dr. Jared Vagy has published three books and numerous articles on injury prevention. He delivers seminars internationally on the topic. Dr. Jared Vagy is on the teaching faculty at USC in the DPT Program. He is a mentor for both the USC Physical Therapy residency program and the USC DPT program.

He has rehabilitated several world champions, gold medalists and Olympic athletes. His assessments and treatments are rooted deeply in an understanding of the movement system. He is a firm believer in an active approach to rehabilitation and works with clients of all ability levels to achieve their maximal function.

Course Description: This course teaches you how to use the movement system to assess, diagnose and treat athlete movement dysfunction. The material is highly interactive with an emphasis on the practical application of principles covered in the course. Concepts utilized in the course include closed kinetic chain muscle testing, dynamometry, speed of force generation, anatomical slings, neuromuscular chains, dual vectors, and reflexive activation. At the conclusion the course, you will have a greater understanding of how to integrate movement based assessments into sport-specific treatments.

Course Objectives:

● Learn the biomechanics and sports specific demands on the lower quarter and

spine in sport.

● Understand the importance of regional interdependence of the lower quarter and

spine with its functional relationship to pathobiomechanics

● Demonstrate and select appropriate movement assessments and treatments for

the lower quarter and spine for athletes

● Provide interventions based on faulty movement patterns observed relating to the

key impairments obtained from the objective examination.

● Learn current research supporting movement and sport specific assessments

and treatments.
