Product Description

Morning: Alleviating Piriformis Syndrome

This course is designed to demonstrate an array of soft tissue techniques for one of the most common musculoskeletal complaints presented by clients. We'll discuss the causes and prevention of piriformis syndrome, review and palpate the relevant anatomy, learn basic assessment tests, and practice hands-on techniques that include transverse friction, pin and stretch techniques, and isolytic contractions.

By the end of the morning, you will be able to:

  • Discuss the causes and prevention of piriformis syndrome.
  • Identify the relevant bony and soft-tissue structures.
  • Demonstrate appropriate assessment techniques to determine the proper therapeutic intervention.
  • Demonstrate transverse friction techniques, pin-and-stretch techniques, and isolytic contractions.
  • Return to your practice confident and capable of integrating these techniques into your work.

Afternoon: Freeing the Shoulder

This interactive applied anatomy seminar uses visual and kinesthetic aids with practical palpation exercises, to bring shoulder anatomy to life. The seminar also includes demonstration and practice of therapeutic interventions (pin and stretch, transverse friction, and facilitated stretching) to access and release the soft tissues of the shoulder girdle, allowing for more freedom of movement around the joint. We'll explore the role of the rhomboids, serratus anterior, pectoralis minor, latissimus dorsi, and the four rotator cuff muscles in the health, function and mobility of the shoulder.

By the end of the afternoon, you will be able to:

  • List at least 14 muscles that attach to the scapula.
  • Palpate the major muscle groups of the shoulder.
  • Demonstrate a 7-step protocol designed to enhance freedom of movement around the shoulder girdle.
  • Perform a self-care program to stretch and strengthen your own shoulder girdles.
  • Return to your practice confident and capable of integrating these techniques into your work.
