Assess and address soft tissues from a functional perspective. In this two-day intensive, practitioners will utilize a simple-to-follow systematic formula for assessing and addressing the soft tissue complex. Soft tissues function in response to joint motion. Therefore, assessing MOTION as opposed to muscles is foundational. In this class we will analyze motion with an emphasis on aberrant tension development followed by strategies to address findings. This system is built to fit within other models.
Attendees will spend hands-on time adding to their assessment skills both globally (off table) and locally (on table). This course is designed by practitioners for practitioners and is 95% hands-on-learn-by-doing, therefore strengthening your practical day-to-day skill set.
This course is 90% hands-on, which means you will be moving and being moved. Please bring or wear shorts for the lower extremity courses.
