KINE 305 Occupational Paper Logic Diagram


Paragraph 1 - Techniques: Job requires…

If function A is important for the
• A job, do you test for it?
• B
If you have Test F, does it help us
• C
learn about job task B?
• Etc….

Job tasks the same?

Paragraph 2- Tests of Function: We need to test for

• A with Test D, E which indicates of Problem 1, 2, …

• B with Test F, G which indicates of Problem 3, 4, …
• C with Test H, I which indicates of Problem 5, 6, …

If you note a problem, do

you present a solution?
Same problems?
If there is a solution, what
problem does it address?

Paragraph 3: Pain Paragraph 4: Mobility Paragraph 5: Strength

First, manage pain issues. Then, Second, manage mobility issues Finally, third, manage
strength issues

Sample logic flow for an occupational paper on: Professional Surfers

Surf paddling requires:

• A full overhead reach for water, using full shoulder flexion, as in Starrett’s overhead archetype.
Tight pectoralis and latissimus dorsi would limit shoulder flexion, so test for tightness
• A full power stroke to push the water backward, using shoulder internal rotation, as in Starrett’s
hang archetype
• Looking up using cervical extension. Endurance in the cervical extensor can be a problem;
chronic overuse from over-looking up and paddling too long and not enough of catching the
waves may lead to fatigue, soreness, leading to chronic inflammation and scar tissue formation.
We need to test for
• Shoulder flexion range of motion using the overhead archetype screen, FMS deep squat and
goniometry. Shoulder internal rotation using the hang archetype screen.
• Lack of internal rotation can also be caused by supraspinatus tendonitis pain, and therefore test
using Hawkins test, empty can test.
• Test for any neck nerve compressions-Spurlings, Valsalva
• Test for neck ROM, and joint play and joint glides within the cervical spine to check for tightness
• Cervical pain – a) loosening tight posterior neck tissue using myofascial release, such as
smashing with a lacrosse ball
• Suprasupinatus tendonitis during internal rotation – a) change in paddling stroke with less range
of motion; b) rotator smash and floss
• stretching of shoulder extensors – pecs and lats to achieve greater range of motion in flexion;
treat trigger points in these muscles so that muscles can relax; myofascial release to loosen
tight parts of these muscles;
• Shoulder joint tightness – banded distraction, shoulder capsure
• Thoracic spine mobilization will also reduce the extension load on the cervical spine so that the
work is more distributed. T-spine smashes, rib mobilization, trap scrub
• Missing shoulder internal rotation: Barbell shoulder shear, internal rotation mobilization to
achieve greater internal rotation
• ROM exercises: pendulum, passive arm elevation, hands behind head, cross chest, standing
external rotation, behind-the back internal rotation.
• Cervical myofascial release on front and back – need to release the flexors to ease extension
• Shoulder: Once the client has sufficient range of motion without pain, add resistance to these
shoulder movements. All exercises should be slow and controlled through full range. All joint
motions should be covered against resistance, such as internal rotation, external rotation,
rowing, shrug, depression, adduction, abduction, flexion, and extension. Then full range of
motion paddling stroke is practiced.
• It is important not to focus on strengthening pecs and lats as they are tight already.
• Neck: thoracic extension exercises (superman) to reduce the load on the cervical extensors;
chin tucks to strengthen longus colli so that the neck is stabilized better.
