Carrie Taylor – Joint Mobilizations & Connective Tissue Release Techniques / Advanced Lateral Rotators of the Hip

July 11 @ 10:00 am - July 12 @ 6:00 pm


Day 1: Joint Mobilizations and Connective Tissue Release Techniques

This advanced workshop guides participants through Carrie Taylor’s unique approach to accessing periosteum & bone, and how to integrate this into a deeper understanding of Myofascial practice. Therapists who are proficient in Myofascial Release, and have plenty of clinical experience in a medical massage practice will most benefit from this class, as a certain level of palpative sensitivity and assessment ability is necessary to fully delve into this topic successfully.

Awareness of how to palpate periosteum & bone is cultivated, with sensitivity to all tissues, progressing through each layer from superficial fascia, to the deepest layer of bone. Techniques used will include periosteal pin & drag, bone compression & C-bowing, and will be used throughout the body in the cranium, vertebrae, scapulae, clavicles, ribcage, humerus, radius/ulna complex, ilium, ischium, sacrum, femur, tibia/fibula complex, patella, and bones of the hands and feet.

Joint mobilizations (NOT chiropractic in nature but up to grade 4 within LMT & RMT scope of practice) will also be covered, to help the manual therapist understand how to most effectively improve mobility, without straining sensitive ligamentous, fascial, and muscular structures.

Day 2: Deep Six – Advanced Lateral Rotators of the Hip

Why do so many people seem to have hip/pelvic dysfunction? Do they have to live with the pain, or is there something we manual therapists can do to help? The floor of the mouth mirrors the respiratory diaphragm and pelvic diaphragm, therefore ribcage and pelvic bone treatment has a significant positive impact on disorders of the TMJ, Cervical & Cranial region, impacting head, neck and shoulder pain via the deep front fascial line and vice versa.

Direct Myofascial release/MFR to the Sacrotuberous & sacrospinous ligaments and lateral rotators of the hip, especially the obturator internus and other muscles attached to the ischial bone, is very effective for decreasing pelvic floor & hip dystonia. Direct work to iliacus and the inguinal ligament, as well as the musculature attaching to the bones of the pelvis, relieves trigger points associated with disorders in this region, by resetting the pelvic postural and fascial biomechanics.

Treatment of the muscles that attach to the same tendinous fascial arch and share the same fascial sheaths as the obturator internus, has a dramatic impact on pain in this region. Indirect acetabulofemoral joint and hip musculature release using PNF stretching, are also great adjuncts to the above treatment modalities.

Finally, osseous and periosteal work to the sacrum & coccyx, help to “bow” the muscles attached to them, taking strain off the muscle spindles, and will act to decrease nociceptor firing, therefore improving the pain response.
