Introduction: When treating myofascial pain & dysfunction is not enough

  • Learn to identify Dynamic Myofascial Dysfunctions in your patient’s unique gait & behavior especially when there is a history of concussions and neck injuries

  • HUMANS ADAPT! Assessing today’s movement from yesterday’s (yesterYEARS) injuries enables you to identify NeuroMyoFascial adaptations and compensatory patterns

  • Recognize associated mechanical & systemic ramifications of myofascial dysfunction associated with neck injuries and concussion

Effective FSM and manual therapy for hidden Neuro-MyoFascial Dysfunctions:

  • How to leverage the interactivity between the brain, peripheral nervous system, myofascial network, biomechanics, & aberrant movement

  • The BRILLIANT efficiency of the brain encourages INSTANT adaptive “solutions” that result in “functional” dysfunction

  • How injured muscles LEARN “the right wrong thing” that leads to ongoing dysfunctional adaptations so we can continue to function until pain STOPS US

  • Learn how to find the story behind the story… something you were never taught in school

  • Take a journey through the miraculous NeuroMyoFascial system: how and why it REALLY holds & releases pain patterns, postural compensations, old physical trauma and emotions

Restore functional movement by activating key Mover & Stabilizer muscles with dynamic manual therapy techniques

  • GRAVITY is your friend: Learn to access this “assistant therapist” for immediate results

  • Stabilizers! The muscle function you never learned in school, and isn’t in the text books: Learn how to reactivate these core muscles and instantly restore biomechanical ease

  • Once you are STABLE… You can MOVE! Understand the function of Movers: Learn the techniques to release & re-educate these key activation muscles

  • Learn the fascinating relationship between agonist and antagonist muscles: You’ve seen this in your practice, but what does it really mean? You’ll get it, as soon as you see it!

Apply powerful microcurrent protocols to support restoration of natural neuro-electrical flow for muscle movement and stabilization

  • Hands-on Frequency Specific Microcurrent (FSM) practicums:, you’ll receive mobilization & motor sensory reboot protocols to enhance the dynamic treatment techniques you learn in this workshop

Quickly grasp the concepts and treatment techniques taught in this class

Learning Objectives

Students will:

  • understand the key symptoms found with concussion and post-concussion syndrome

  • understand post-concussive syndrome and the cervical myofascial component

  • demonstrate proficiency in assessing myofascial pain & dysfunction

  • identify the genesis of aberrant movement patterns & distorted biomechanics

  • be able to identify postural distortions, stabilizer muscle weaknesses, and mover muscles. dysfunction in the “Mover and Stabilizer muscles” driven by the brain “compensating for an injury/trauma/catastrophic event”

  • be able to demonstrate basic competence in applying specific active/dynamic manual therapy techniques to restore optimal cervical movement and function.

  • Gain a deeper understanding of the emotional impact of injury or trauma on the NeuroMyoFascial system and limbic system.

  • Learn the critical stabilizer muscles and how to PROPERLY activate them

  • Learn the secret to relaxing the neck and shoulder muscles

Learning Outcomes

After the completion of this course the learner will be able to:

  • Gain hands-on experience in therapeutic techniques to resolve dysfunctional cervical motor patterns and/or dynamic postural distortions quickly (ONE Treatment)

  • Provide FSM combined with manual therapy techniques for the activation & treatment of the “mover and stabilizer” muscles

  • Apply specific active, dynamic manual therapy techniques to resolve pain and dysfunction in the neck and shoulder while resolving the debilitating symptoms of post concussive syndrome.
