Day 1: Myofascial Assessment & Treatment of the Shoulder, Elbow, & Wrist – Level 1
This workshop covers Myofascial assessment of the shoulder, elbow and wrist as it applies to formulating effective treatment goals for a variety of disorders in the region, such as Thoracic Outlet Syndrome, Adhesive Capsulitis/”frozen shoulder”, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, DeQuervain’s Tenosynovitis, “Blackberry thumb”, Shoulder tendinosis, etc. Participants will be shown how to release clavipectoral, deltopectoral, platysmal, sternal, cubital, flexor & extensor superficial fascias, before deeper structures are addressed.
Scapular mobilization supine and prone will be demonstrated, with specific releases to all muscles & fascial tissues involved in upper extremity dysfunction. Clavicle mobilization and abdominal head of pec major release round out the shoulder approaches. In addition, joint mobilizations and osseous techniques are shown for the clavicle, scapula, and upper extremity joints.
Day 2: Myofascial Assessment & Treatment of The Pectoral Tissues – Level 1
This myofascial approach to the treatment of the breast, pectoral girdle, and related tissues, will provide participants with the confidence to perform hands-on techniques in a sensitive, yet highly under-treated area. Learning to work on scar tissue, musculature, and fascia post-surgery, or following any other trauma, is an effective means to improve posture for the client. Improving the pliability and flexibility of scar tissue has also been shown to significantly decrease pain, especially in the neck and shoulder girdle. Work will be demonstrated draped, undraped, or through clothing/sheet to provide options for patient & therapist comfort.
Times: Day 1: 10:00 am – 6:00 pm; Day 2: 10:00 am – 6:00 pm
