MF1 - Myofascial Manipulation is organized by University of St. Augustine for Health Sciences (USAHS) and will be held from Aug 03 - 04, 2019 at San Marcos, California, United States of America.
Hours: 18 or 1.8 CEUs (includes 3 online hours) or 3 graduate credits
Prerequisite: Intro MF1 Webinar (3 hours; .3 CEUs) & Pre-course FCO - Home study (included with MF1)
Who Attends: Physical Therapists
This seminar deals with the evaluation and treatment techniques of myofascial manipulation. In order for the body to maintain normal physiological motion and postural efficiency, there needs to be freedom from restrictions in the myofascial unit. The emphasis of this seminar is placed on the relationship between the soft tissue structures to the mechanics of the spine. The lecture component consists of a discussion of functional anatomy, posture, soft tissue anatomy, both normal and pathological treatment principles and the biomechanics of soft tissue. Soft tissue techniques directed at the normalizing function will be demonstrated and practiced for the hip, pelvis, lumbar, thoracic, subcranial and cervicothoracic spines.
At the completion of this seminar, the attendee should be able to:
• identify normal and abnormal postural components of the body with emphasis on the spine
• identify and palpate key anatomical structures for soft tissue pathology
• understand the interaction between soft tissue and joint mechanics to normal physiological motion
• demonstrate and practice analyzing soft tissue mobility and muscle “play”
• demonstrate and practice manipulative skills for myofascial dysfunction
• demonstrate and practice a clinical approach to the proper sequencing of treatment
• develop a basic understanding of the status of soft tissue research and connective tissue histology for rationalization of treatment principles.
Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
