This month we had the opportunity to record an hour long minute interview with Shirley Sahrmann whose commitment to our profession is truly inspirational. Shirley’s career spans over 50 years from the polio era to the current day, during which time she has focused on encouraging the profession to adopt the Movement System as our professional identity.
In this interview Shirley talks about her work and how she came to focus on movement as an important part of managing patients. Shirley discuss how physical therapists and physiotherapists need to realise that they are the Movement System experts, how we should use diagnostic categories to inform treatment and strengthen our profession, and how we should become lifespan practitioners. We didn’t talk about her book but Shirley is also the author of the book ‘Movement System Impairment Syndromes of the Extremities, Cervical and Thoracic Spines’.
So sit back and prepare to be encouraged to adopt the movement system as your professional identity…
