Orthopedic Massage Techniques: Lower Body
Lower body and extremity orthopedic disorders are extremely common today. This course covers conditions and biomechanical issues of the lumbar spine, hips and pelvis, and lower extremity. We explore how this entire region is fundamentally interconnected, and how conditions thought to be in the extremities can originate in the lower torso and hip/pelvis region. We also explore nerve related dysfunction.
Conditions covered: complicated low back pain, SI joint dysfunction, piriformis syndrome & other nerve impingement conditions, iliotibial band friction syndrome, patellofemoral pain syndrome & other knee injuries, shin splints, plantar fasciitis, tarsal tunnel syndrome, neurodynamic testing and nerve mobilization techniques.
Orthopedic Massage Techniques: Upper Body
Upper body and upper extremity orthopedic disorders are a virtual epidemic with our technological and busy lives today, especially in the occupational sector. Areas such as the shoulder have very complex biomechanical arrangements that are highly reliant on proper soft-tissue function for their optimum health. This course covers conditions and biomechanical issues of the cervical and upper thoracic region, as well as the extremities. We explore how this entire region is fundamentally interconnected. We also explore disorders caused by damage or dysfunction to peripheral nerves, which make up a huge percentage of upper extremity complaints.
Conditions covered: cervical disc herniation, thoracic outlet syndrome, whiplash and related cervical strain injuries, upper torso trigger points/dysfunction, shoulder impingement syndrome, rotator cuff pathology, internal shoulder joint pathology, epicondylitis, carpal tunnel and pronator teres syndromes, and many others.
