How do you treat scar tissue on the anterior surface of the Achilles tendon?
Since the Soleus is deep to the Gastrocnemius, how can you treat it manually?
Do you know how to test the Anterior Talofibular Ligament to see if it’s injured?
In this 95% hands-on, course in Orthopedic assessment and treatment, you’ll learn how to work effectively with injuries to the hip, thigh, lower leg, foot and ankle. The protocol has five components:
- Anatomy Palpation
- Injury Assessment Testing
- Friction Therapy
- Myofascial Therapy
- Injury-Targeted Exercise Program
It’s difficult to treat an injury unless you can actually locate it with your hands. A unique feature of this workshop is teaching you detailed anatomy palpation, more kinesthetic than textbook learning. Under supervision, you learn how to find and treat each of the 24 discreet, often challenging injuries taught in this course. Both the Friction and Myofascial treatment techniques are designed to be most effective for the client while causing a minimal amount of stress on the practitioner. The exercise programs taught here give your clients an opportunity to enhance their rehabilitation by increasing range of motion and strength-building. By the end of this workshop, you’ll have these tools ready to integrate into your next client session.
About the Instructor:
"It’s empowering to know my work can help improve someone’s quality of life. When I began, I remember guessing at what was injured, but learning Orthopedic Manual Therapy changed that. For me, the great thing about these skills is understanding exactly what is injured, especially in the shoulder, where injuries rarely hurt at the source. Finding out that the shoulder refers pain in peculiar ways changed everything. The shoulder is very complex, but with these skills, the complexity melts away. When you can put your finger on the distal end of the supraspinatus tendon, you can treat it. I teach you how to palpate every major injured structure in the shoulder, so you don’t have to guess where it is. Once you understand how to precisely assess and effectively treat a person’s injury, they will be your client for life." - Ben Benjamin Ph.D.
