Day 1: Myofascial Assessment & Treatment of the Lumbrosacral-Hip Complex: Level 1
This workshop will provide therapists with a new approach to effectively treating & preventing Lumbrosacral-Hip Complex pain. Therapists will review myofascial assessment by discussing intake information, as well as using observation, movement, palpation, neurological assessment, referral pain and special tests to translate a patient’s clinical info into an effective treatment plan. The majority of time is spent in hands-on practice of techniques learned for direct and indirect treatment of the lumbar spine, ribcage, pelvis, lower and upper extremities, as they all relate to back and hip pain. Supine and prone lower and upper extremity stretch protocols are shown, as well as how to apply proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation if necessary. In addition, very specific lumbar/trunk, hip/thigh, and ilial/ischial release techniques will be highlighted.
Day 2: Myofascial Assessment & Treatment of the Knee, Ankle, & Foot – Level 1
This workshop will provide therapists with different Myofascial approaches to effectively treat & prevent Knee, Ankle & Foot pain. Therapists will briefly review Myofascial assessment, by looking at ways to take a client’s intake information and translate it into an effective treatment plan. The majority of time is spent in hands-on practice of techniques for direct and indirect treatment of the lower extremity (a great continuation of the Lumbrosacral Hip workshop). Myofascial treatment & joint mobilization of the lower extremity is a necessary therapeutic approach to address sacroiliac dysfunction, back, hip, knee, & ankle pain.
Treatment techniques for the lateral, anterior, and “back” fascial lines are shown, with a very specific direction in effectively accessing gastrocnemius-soleus complex, Achilles tendon, Crural, Hamstrings, Patellar Fascias, & Fascia Lata. Superior & inferior knee joint release, plantar fascial treatment, joint mobilizations/osseous techniques for the lower extremity and correcting pes cavus/planus round out the list of topics covered.
