Myofascial Release in the Traditional Setting

MFR in acion

This course is directly related to any individual or health care provider who works with patients struggling with ROM and strength deficits as well as chronic pain and fatigue. More than just treating the physical components of pain management, this course will also focus on the impact of psychological challenges that manifest into physical pain, an area often unaddressed. Participants attending the course will be able to assess a patient's postural alignment, tissue tension, understand and apply the principles of myofascial release, and design a basic self treatment program for their clients in the traditional therapy setting. Diagnosis and positional specific techniques to use on patients in wheelchairs, hospital beds, sidelying and supine will be explored. Lastly, patient and family education to self-treatment using myofascial release will be discussed. Have you ever felt like you are missing a key component in your treatments? Want no more, the missing link is myofascial release.

The Core of the Matter

This course applies to any health care professional working with clients with chronic joint pain, low back pain, recovering from an injury and surgical procedure, living with a neurological deficit, or experiencing urinary incontinence or IC all of which are effected by the pelvic floor muscles. Pelvic floor disorders occur when the muscles of th pelvic floor do not activate properly. In a research study done by Arab A, Behbahani R, Lorestani L, Azari A. showed that individuals with low back pain have a significant deficit in pelvic floor function compared to individuals without low back pain. Learning to begin by treating the core will decrease treatment time, improve overall patient independence, endurance, and safety to complete the physical requests during a therapy session. This course is focused on educating therapists and trainers to the best place to start therapy by developing core stability. Strengthening exercises, pelvic balancing stretches, diaphragmatic breathing, and mental wellness to release tension are all components to a healthy core that will aid in supporting the extremities and organ functions. All participants will learn through practice throughout the day to ensure understanding of the importance of the material be presented.

Sunshine Therapeutics understands how challenging it can be for therapists and employers to find the time and money to attend quality continuing education courses that create a well rounded, skilled therapist. That's why we want to bring our classes to you. When a team learns together they work together understanding and agreeing on important clinical reasoning decisions. That creates a team environment benefiting the patient.
