Carrie Taylor – Myofascial Assessment & Treatment – Knee, Ankle, & Foot – Abdomen, Ribcage, & Pelvis

November 2, 2019 @ 10:00 am - November 3, 2019 @ 6:00 pm




Day 1: Myofascial Assessment & Treatment of the Knee, Ankle, & Foot – Level 1

This workshop will provide therapists with different Myofascial approaches to effectively treat & prevent Knee, Ankle & Foot pain. Therapists will briefly review Myofascial assessment, by looking at ways to take a client’s intake information and translate it into an effective treatment plan. The majority of time is spent in hands-on practice of techniques for direct and indirect treatment of the lower extremity (a great continuation of the Lumbrosacral Hip workshop). Myofascial treatment & joint mobilization of the lower extremity is a necessary therapeutic approach to address sacroiliac dysfunction, back, hip, knee, & ankle pain.

Treatment techniques for the lateral, anterior, and “back”fascial lines are shown, with a very specific direction in effectively accessing gastrocnemius-soleus complex, Achilles tendon, Crural, Hamstrings, Patellar Fascias, & Fascia Lata. Superior & inferior knee joint release, plantar fascial treatment, joint mobilizations/osseous techniques for the lower extremity and correcting pes cavus/planus round out the list of topics covered.

Day 2: Myofascial Assessment & Treatment of the Abdomen, Ribcage, & Pelvis – Level 1

This course will remove any discomfort felt by therapists when working on the Abdomen, Ribcage & Pelvis, by combining in-depth assessment approaches with effective myofascial release techniques.  Therapists will spend time doing direct techniques, such as the release of the abdominal/peritoneal fascia, and iliac/inguinal fascia, as well as indirect techniques, such as the release of groin/pubic fascias.  Proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation (PNF) will be employed, along with passive stretching with traction (limb unwinding), to perform the indirect techniques.  Once learned, PNF and limb unwinding can be applied anywhere in the body.  Patients will experience improved digestion from the abdominal work, improved breathing from the ribcage/diaphragm work, and better flexibility in the back and hips from the pelvic work.  Decreased back, shoulder, and neck pain can be expected from all of the modalities used.
