Description

Muscle Energy Techniques of the Spine & Extremities: Increasing Mobility, Stability and Movement Effectively

Benefits of Attending

• Examine biomechanical and neurophysiologic effects of manual therapy
• Discover how to use METs to increase ROM and strength without causing pain
• Hands-on Lab for application and skill acquisition of METs per body region
• When to use METs - Identifying appropriate patient populations

 

Description

“No Pain, No Gain”. Rehab professionals, athletes, coaches and patients have all heard this phrase a time or two. The idea that experiencing pain made an individual stronger has been pervasive. Recent studies have shown, however, that pain is perceived as a threat by the brain, which in turn alters the body’s natural movement pattern to compensate. Fortunately, research has given us much more insight into the brain’s responses to pain and how to utilize techniques to decrease the threat response and improve function.


This one-day lab intensive course focuses on the theory and application of Muscle Energy Techniques. Attendees will explore the benefits of autogenic and reciprocal inhibition techniques of the spine and extremities to increase muscle facilitation, mobility, stability, and movement re-patterning to prevent musculoskeletal injuries. Through hands on lab sessions, case studies and lecture, this class will provide you with the knowledge to explain the multiple benefits of METs as well as the ability to implement each technique into daily practice.

 

Objectives

1. Discuss the philosophy behind METs and their relationship to different populations.
2. Identify the concepts of kinetic chain function and how body regions intertwine.
3. Describe how affected tissue can have neural as well as mechanical dysfunction.
4. Develop an approach to apply METs into a well-designed plan of care.
5. Describe and compare biomechanical and neurophysiologic benefits of manual therapies.
