CEUs: 14

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.

We will discuss NMT's leading theories on the formation of trigger-points and the how’s and the why’s of deactivating them.  These teachings will give us a better understanding of trigger-points which will be carried throughout the courses

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.

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