The field of fascial research is exploding with fascinating new knowledge about the role of fascia in sensory communication, force transmission, postural stability, cellular health, and much more. Gaining knowledge of this important three-dimensional structure in the body will enhance the clinician’s ability to improve outcomes in many diverse types of patient diagnoses including tendonitis, joint restrictions, chronic pain, fibromyalgia, and neurological hypertonicity caused by myoplastic hyperstiffness.
This two-day, intermediate course provides the clinician with the appropriate assessment tools, palpation skills and manual techniques to improve patient function and reduce pain. There is extensive lab time to practice manual skills using multiple myofascial and soft tissue techniques to reduce guarding, calm the sympathetic pain response, and decrease restrictions of the myofascial structures. Specifically, these myofascial techniques include gross and local hands on skills, neural inhibition techniques, trigger point reduction, and more. The clinician will also learn progressive mobility exercises to enhance the outcomes after restrictive tissue is released.
This class provides clinicians with the information and skills needed to successfully treat orthopedic and neurologically involved patients that present with fascial restriction. Clinicians’ will have the tools necessary to provide a comprehensive approach that includes hands on skills, patient education, exercises and functional mobility activities to achieve functional outcomes.
The information and skills presented in this class will enhance the therapist’s ability to improve quality of life, functional mobility and decrease pain in a variety of common orthopedic diagnoses including acute injuries, musculoskeletal dysfunction, chronic injuries and post-surgical restrictions as well as affecting certain dysfunctions in neurological diagnoses such as Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s and stroke.
