Description

Manual Therapy options are endless in quantity and finding the right combination for your patients can be quite daunting. By combining multiple manual therapy techniques, you can quickly and effectively make improvements setting your patients up for success. Take your IASTM techniques to the next level by learning how to integrate cupping with your tool-based soft tissue treatments. By utilizing new manual therapy techniques that complement each other you will develop a fully integrated manual therapy approach that helps expedite your patient's mobility. The latest evidence shows that manual therapy, IASTM and cupping reduces pain and improves function by restoring optimal movement, but understanding how to combine these techniques is paramount. Every patient is different and this course will teach you how to optimally use manual techniques to improve soft tissue and joint movement, based on the specific needs of every patient. The certification consists of 3 hours of online content, which is a prerequisite to the 13-hour live hands-on lab course.

 

As part of the STMT-C Certification you will utilize additional IASTM techniques that can be combined with active movements. You will also understand how to differentiate techniques to reduce pain, reduce tone, or stimulate mechanoreceptors. Attendees will learn when and how to apply cupping, and practice both static and dynamic cupping techniques. During the hands-on labs you will have the opportunity to try out different cupping tools to see which are better suited for your patient population and treatments and understand how cupping can be combined with active movement to improve mobility. Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization is a perfect combination with joint mobilization and participants will be exposed to effective manual techniques to help patients regain mobility more effectively by addressing both the soft tissue restrictions and the joint restrictions. The STMT-C Certification is intended as a complement to the STMT-1 level course by adding more soft tissue treatments. With the integration of joint mobilization, the STMT-C course is the next step in a comprehensive movement based treatment approach.

Objectives

1. Identify indications and contraindications for manual therapy, including mobilization/manipulation, IASTM and cupping.
2. Demonstrate competency with comprehensive, integrated manual therapy treatments for most common movement disorders in upper, lower quadrant and spine.
3. Explain how to integrate IASTM and cupping with active movement to improve mobility and function.
4. Implement evidence based techniques and concepts for safe treatment and effective functional outcomes.
5. Discuss and demonstrate proper progressions of introductory tool/cupping techniques to more advanced movement-based techniques.
6. Differentiate between joint restrictions and soft tissue restrictions and the appropriate manual therapy techniques for each.
