Course Description

This 2-day course is designed to provide participants with the tools to assess and treat the myofascial system of the Lower Quadrant. Traditional manual therapy training emphasizes the articular system and motor control. While both approaches are essential in orthopedic patient management the ‘soft tissue’ or fascial component is also extremely relevant.

Fascia is innervated making it a potential pain generator and has a strong mechanical presence that can restrict mobility if not addressed. This evidence informed course will outline how to identify and treat fascial restrictions. The techniques demonstrated are derived from manual therapy for the fascia (Mobilisation of the Myofascial System (MMS) This approach will allow participants to appreciate the implications that myofascial system dysfunctions can have on joint amplitude, motor control, neurophysiology and overall client functioning.

Specific Objectives

By the end of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the anatomy and physiology of the myofascial system.
  • Apply techniques for assessing and treating the mobility of the myofascial system for the Lower Quadrant
  • Use this treatment approach safely.

There is a pre-requisite 5 hour on-line Theory course which can be taken as a stand-alone course.
