If you think about the typical posture of your older patient, it usually involves a forward-head, kyphosis. decreased shoulder range of motion, tight hip flexors and restricted ankle mobility. The patient may also present with stenosis in the spine and some tight muscular issues in the back, often with complaints of neck, shoulder, back and hip pain.

This Myofascial Release course for physical therapists and occupational therapists will present the evidence that supports the theory that connective tissue and fascia provide the network connection for all of the anatomical framework and is quite often the underlying factor of many postural and functional limitations. Through gentle myofascial techniques a clinician can significantly improve age related tissue shortening to improve range of motion, balance, function and decrease pain.
