PROGRAM DETAILS

Description

Soft Tissue Mobilization

Clients will often present with a constellation of sometimes vague and unusual symptoms that do not follow typical dermatomal or myotomal patterns. They report pain, stiffness or difficulty moving, and sensations of tension in areas distant from the apparent region of injury. Many of these clients are experiencing myofascial pain. It does not appear on usual radiographic studies such as x-rays, MRIs, or our standard examination routines. It is best diagnosed by the skill of a manual therapy practitioner, using motion testing and posture analysis. Myofascial restrictions can influence posture and movement patterns. It may take quite some time for the myofascial pattern to develop. Symptoms may appear months or years after a trauma or stressful event, at the point when the body has maximized its adaptive potential and loses the ability to compensate for abnormal tissue tension. Standard treatment protocols using medication, exercise and modalities may fail to address the problem effectively. Manual release of these fascial adhesions and fibrosis/scars is essential to restore motion.

In this course, you will learn how to differentiate between myofascial conditions such as myofascial pain syndrome and fibromyalgia. You will identify motion restrictions through posture observation and hands-on motion testing. You will learn the basics of how to apply MFR to improve tissue mobility, circulation and posture, and decrease painful restrictions using this gentle manual therapy technology to achieve improved functional outcomes across the lifespan.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

  • Identify soft tissue motion restrictions/fibrosis/scars in the skin and myofascia
  • Describe the intricate anatomy and function of our complex myofascial system
  • Perform a myofascial evaluation of posture observation and motion testing of the skin and muscles to identify motion barriers
  • Discuss indications and contraindications for myofascial release
  • Define myofascial pain syndrome and fibromyalgia and discuss the differences between them
  • Apply myofascial skin glide, skin rolling, crosshand releases, laminar releases, muscle play, circular friction, z-friction, elbowing, knuckling, distraction, respiratory diaphragm release and psoas release to improve functional mobility as part of a therapeutic program
  • Discuss the evidence-based research regarding the impact of the fascial system and efficacy of myofascial release

What You Should Bring: Participants should bring lab clothes to wear for practice, such as halter tops and shorts. Bring massage lotion. It is strongly recommended participants bring a massage table or mat to practice on since this course emphasizes hands-on lab.
