Myofascial Trigger Points (MTrPs) are a frequently overlooked and misunderstood source of musculoskeletal pain. According to a study of patients seeking medical intervention for pain, Myofascial Trigger Points were present as much as 93% of the time.
Our seminar series is designed to give participants the necessary tools to identify and treat Myofascial Pain and Dysfunction. You will learn a complete treatment protocol that will provide immediate applicability in your practice.
Based on the work of Doctors Janet Travell and David Simons, co-authors of Myofascial Pain and Dysfunction: The Trigger Point Manual, this treatment protocol has continued to evolve with contributions of many luminaries including Bonnie Prudden, Karl Lewitt, Andrew Fischer, Robert Gerwin, Thomas Myers, Aaron Mattes and others.
The Principles and Practices Seminar is the prerequisite for all Core Seminars. You are required to take this seminar one time. It is given four times during the academic year to allow entry into the series at four different junctures.
Six Core Seminars will focus on regional pain and dysfunction caused by MTrPs.
Two Advanced Techniques Seminars will focus on the mechanical and neurological relationships of the involved muscles and joints.
Lab: Clinical Applications provides practical experience with scenario based instruction.
