Exercise as an Adjunct to Manual Therapy
Description: This three day course explores the interrelationship of anatomy, biomechanics and neurophysiology for the neuromusculoskeletal system. Emphasis is placed on the evaluation of neuromotor regulation with identification of faulty movement patterns in both the upper and lower quarters. The role of adverse neural tension as a perpetuator of chronic neuromuscular dysfunction is also covered. The course emphasizes the use of specific home exercises to compliment manual therapy for acute and chronic musculoskeletal dysfunction. Joint mobilization, manual stretching, self stretching exercises and neuromotor retraining exercises are demonstrated and practiced by the participants.
