Pain combined with the ensuing impairments and functional limitations often influence the decision to seek care. The purpose of this course is to provide insight into the structural pathology and clinical signs associated with AT. Practical exercise-based modifications specific to AT are presented in an effort to mitigate the impairment sequela and decelerate subsequent morbidities.
