Influence of lumbar posture on biomechanics and functional anatomy. Dr Grant Mawston

The role of the trunk musculature is considered important for the prevention and rehabilitation of low back pain.  Yet, as therapists, we often have limited knowledge of how the functional anatomy of the trunk musculature can direct the advice we give to patients.   This webinar will highlight the functional anatomy of key trunk muscles and how this is altered by changes in lumbar posture and fatigue during functional activities and exercise rehabilitation.  Clinical implications will also be discussed.

 

Grant Mawston is a senior lecturer in the Department of Physiotherapy and a co-director of the Health & Rehabilitation Research Institute who has a particular interest in exercise-based rehabilitation and neuromuscular control of the lumbar spine. Grant’s teaching expertise is in the area of exercise physiology and rehabilitation, biomechanics, and musculoskeletal physiotherapy.  Prior to joining AUT University, Grant worked in the area of musculoskeletal physiotherapy and was the physiotherapist for New Zealand Gymnastics team over a number of years.  Grant’s PhD focused on the neuromuscular control and spinal kinematic responses during sudden loading and manual handling tasks, with a particular focus on spinal posture and fatigue.  Grant's research interests have included measures of fatigue during prolonged cycling, exercise-based rehabilitation, the acute effects of manual therapy on spinal motion, 3-D analysis of human movement, and post operative surgical outcomes following hamstring reattachment.
Grant's other research interests have included measures of fatigue during prolonged cycling, the acute effects of manual therapy on spinal motion, 3-D analysis of human movement, motor control of individuals with Down Syndrome, and exercise-based rehabilitation - See more at: http://www.aut.ac.nz/profiles/grant-mawston#sthash.WvQvfIwx.dpuf
