Physiotherapy Course Summary:
Come to the must see clinical workshop of 2017!
This seminar has been approved for 12.5 formal CPD hours.
Dr. Mike Murray and Dr. Larry Bell are offering a hands-on, 2 day weekend course for treating athletes as well as your difficult patients. Drawing upon their extensive combined experience of serving as medical specialists at over 100 National and International sport competitions, including six Olympic Games each, Drs. Murray and Bell will inspire and motivate practitioners with in-depth practical demonstrations and a sharing of clinical gems.
Workshops will show you how to detect various problems through observation and integrate various adjustive and soft tissue techniques to correct imbalances and restore function from the ground upwards. You will also learn simple rehabilitation exercises designed to improve human performance and the latest innovations in assessments and treatment strategies.
Part I: Introduction to Kinetic Chain
This section reviews research and theories from the various leaders in the field such as Yanda, Tom Meyers, Gray Cook, etc. Here students will begin to learn the concept of integration of the upper and lower body with an emphasis on human performance. This section reviews foot function and its effect on the entire body.
Part II: Functional Assessment and Treatment (Hands – On)
This section involves functional assessment of the lower extremity and treatment protocols to correct biomechanical dysfunction. Here the students are introduced to various soft tissue protocols and adjustment procedures (myofacial release, Graston, etc). The emphasis is on correcting and improving the functional components in the chain.
Part III: Adjunctive Therapies and Procedures (Hands-On)
The students will learn the basics of muscles testing and be introduced to a variety of ancillary therapies that are complimentary to the course. This includes various stretching techniques, muscles activation, Mulligan belts, and kinesio taping.
Part IV: Integration and Performance
This section will show how a field practitioner can integrate various techniques as well as how the myofascial chains interact (i.e.: during athletic events or activities). The focus here is on ambulation and running but students will get a good understanding between the interplay of upper and lower extremities. The instructors may also use live athletes and cases to demonstrate how to incorporate the weekend's topics into a good workflow at the office on Monday morning in their offices.
NOTE: Topics and the actual schedule may vary slightly from the above synopsis.
