Shirley Sahrmann PT, PhD, FAPTA

Welcome back to the podcasts!  This episode features Shirley Sahrmann.  Many of you likely know of Shirley from her research, teachings with Washington University in St. Louis, or her texts for Movement System Impairment Syndromes.  I wanted to speak with Shirley to gain a better perspective on her background and thoughts regarding her point of view.  I’ve noticed more in more in my own practice how much the neuromuscular system and create illusions of mechanical dysfunctions, so had thought that maybe Shirley could provide perspective on that.  Fortunately, Shirley corrected me on my perceptions about what Movement System Impairment Syndromes are.  I’d certainly love to speak with Shirley again about these topics, and more.  Please enjoy and let us know your thoughts!
