An Orthopedic Approach to Myofascial Release is organized by Great Lakes Seminars (GLS) and will be held from Oct 24 - 25, 2020 at Jonesboro, Arkansas, United States of America. Accreditation: This course has been submitted for 16 continuing education hours. Approval amounts may vary per state. Certificates of attendance with the number of course hours will be given to each participant at the completion of the course. Course Description: This class will help you to learn a clinically and anatomically based approach to myofascial release. We focus on how the muscle and fascia create dysfunction in the body, increase the stress on the system and cause symptoms that become common diagnoses that we treat every day. Learn to integrate this effective tool into your daily treatment and expand the options you have to treat dysfunction. As with all of our manual therapy courses, this seminar will follow a progression of principles and reinforce them throughout the 16 hours, is at least 75% hands-on lab, and will give the clinician hands-on skills they use immediately upon their return to the clinical setting. Topics Covered: • Review of pertinent anatomy • Introduction to the fascial system and its relationship to other systems • Palpation of the bony structures and muscular segments • Motion testing - static and dynamic • Treatment of the thorax • Treatment of the upper quadrants • Treatment of the lower quadrants • Treatment of scars • Integrated fascial elongation • Three-dimensional, functional stretching • Application to specific clinical situations Course Objectives: At the completion of this seminar, the participant will be able to: • Confidently describe and independently state the rationale for doing Myofascial Release and its specific effect • Correctly demonstrate proper hand technique, grading of the level of touch, and the effects of a release • Correctly describe the importance of fluid fascial movement in a 3 dimensional system, allowing for the physiologic system to have the ability to provide resilience to dysfunction • Confidently describe the different layers of fascia and know when to treat each layer • Confidently explain and independently state how specific myofascial restrictions in different parts of the body can create the orthopedic dysfunctions that we treat on a daily basis Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.
