This course is part 1 of 2 courses dedicated to Myofascial Mobilization: Myo Mobilization 1 (passive release) and Myo Mobilization 2 (active release) mobilization techniques.

In this Myofascial Mobilization course, we will explore the anatomy and physiology of fascia and the relationship of fascia with the musculoskeletal system. Knowing the foundational anatomy, physiology and general characteristics of fascia, will help to inform us on how to proceed with an educated treatment.

Integrated Neuromuscular Therapy and Orthopedic Assessment

Dates:
April 28-29, 2018
Time: Saturday 10-5:30, Sunday 9-5:00
Location: New Hampshire Institute for Therapeutic Arts, 27 Sandy Creek Rd., Bridgton, Maine
Cost: $375, pre-registration 21 days in advance for $325
CEUs: 14

This module will explore musculoskeletal anatomy and function of the thoracic cage. Lectures will be focused on muscle location / function and activity of daily living stressors that will cause dysfunction within the musculoskeletal system and with this information, we will examine the main physiological factors that may create or intensify pain patterns.

The course will include Ortho Assessments to the nearby joints and tissue, so as an LMT we know when and where to treat appropriately. Students will explore the Ortho Assessment Model/Protocols and treatment models that can be utilized throughout the body and will be emphasized throughout the course. We will then apply this knowledge with specific integrated NMT protocol, by applying manual advanced tissue techniques to relieve myofascial trigger points and other soft tissue dysfunction. Practice will include demonstration, palpation, verbal walk through and practice time.

This is a stand-alone module, so no prerequisite is required.

Included within the course:

  • Comprehensive muscle study – location, function, stressors and trigger point (tps) referral patterns of over 15+ muscles
  • Various muscle and connective tissue dysfunctions / pathologies will be discussed i.e., frozen shoulder, thoracic outlet syndrome, hyper-kyphosis…
  • An Orthopedic testing technique will be demonstrated for each region /joint
  • The relationship of scapular dysfunction to shoulder impingement and thoracic outlet syndrome
  • Techniques will include; Trigger point release, Myofascial Mobilization principles, Muscle Energy Techniques, Cross Fiber Friction and various muscle lengthening techniques. Also included emphasis on utilizing correct body mechanics
  • 9 + hrs of extensive hands-on work

Integrated Neuromuscular Therapy & Ortho Assessment of the Cervicals

Dates: Saturday-Sunday, April 7-8, 2018
Time: 9:30am to 5pm
Location: Swedish Institute, New York, NY
Early Bird Ticket: $375 until March 10th
Standard Price: $425

This module will explore musculoskeletal anatomy and function of the cervical and the jaw. Lectures will be focused on muscle location / function and activity of daily living (work, hobbies, sports) stressors that will cause dysfunction within the musculoskeletal system and with this information, we will examine the main physiological factors that may create or intensify pain patterns, including nerve entrapment/compression, trigger points, pathologies and postural distortions.

Within this weekend we will discuss NMT's leading theories on the formation of trigger-points and how and why we deactivate them. These teachings will give us a better understanding of trigger-points which will be carried throughout the course.

The course will also include Ortho Assessments to the nearby joints and tissue, so as an LMT we know when and where to treat appropriately. We will then apply this knowledge with specific integrated NMT protocol, by applying manual advanced tissue techniques to relieve myofascial trigger points and other soft tissue dysfunction. Practice will include demonstration, palpation, verbal walk through and practice time.
