Pain Reduction for Osteoarthritis and Nerve Impingements
This is a two day workshop. Day One: Osteoarthritis: Taut Band Therapy can help you provide greater reduction of pain, increases in range of motion and improved functional abilities for your patients with osteoarthritis. Injury, inflammation and pain within the joint capsule often provoke hypertonic conditions in the muscles that provide stability and movement for that joint. Although secondary in cause, these muscular problems often become “primary” in the generation of pain and associated disability. Studies of joints and strategies for pain reduction will include shoulder, hip and knee; treatment and hands-on sessions will focus on hip joints. Day Two is Nerve Impingements: Learn how to better assist your patients with nerve impingements. Understanding the basics of neural anatomy and physiology will enable more precise assessments and more effective therapeutic approaches. Participants will learn the two primary causes of nerve root compression and will examine the most notable areas of local nerve impingements generated by muscular tension. Bodywork strategies will be discussed and demonstrated; there may be less hands-on practice than in other classes. Instructor, Stewart Walker NCBTMB CE Provider #450165-06. Prepayment required.
