Course Description

BioSynchronistics® is a commonsense holistic approach needed for today’s fast-paced and insurance-driven world, which nevertheless fits our own practice’s mission statement to provide the highest quality of care.  It is a way to use manual therapy in a total-body approach based on innovative biomechanical principles of gravitational containment.  The Institute’s courses enable the practitioner to use safe and consistently effective interventions in approaching old problems in new ways. Secondary to the clinical evidence of the success of BioSynchronistics®/ Quality Physical Therapy and the interest expressed by our peers, we are making available the principles and approach known as BioSynchronistics®. BioSynchronistics® is a therapeutic method in which a client is assessed from postural, biomechanical, energetic and functional impairment perspectives to evaluate mobility impairments related to abnormal alignment, kinetics and kinematics of motion.  BioSynchronistics interventions manage identified mobility impairments using gentle manual therapy and functional movement to balance the neuromusculoskeletal system for improved function.  The body uses its inherent ability to heal and adapt to changing circumstances. In injury and disease, its fascial memory stores significant information related to motion restrictions. BioSynchronistics® applies principles of physics to restore healthy movement by modifying adaptive kinematics and fascial restrictions post-injury and teaching clients to maximize adaptive potential for optimal mobility and function. In this course, you will gain theoretical and practical understanding of BioSynchronistics® concepts and how to use this approach in immediate clinical applications for a variety of diagnoses and for total body wellness.

LOW BACK PAIN: MOVE BEYOND LIMITATIONS WITH MYOFASCIAL RELEASE

by allisonronis on June 29, 2017 Comments Off on LOW BACK PAIN: MOVE BEYOND LIMITATIONS WITH MYOFASCIAL RELEASE

By: Theresa A. Schmidt, DPT, MS, OCS, LMT, CEAS

Course Description

Low back pain (LBP) affects at least eighty percent of Americans, resulting in significant financial burden and loss of  quality of life.  According to the Clinical Practice Guidelines, mobilization is an important component of back pain management.  Too often clinicians are ready to perform joint manipulation/mobilization with disregard for the soft tissue component of LBP.  Myofascial restrictions may limit spinal mobility and function, and must be addressed as part of a plan of care.  Fascia is a three-dimensional matrix of tissue that envelopes every system of the body.  When spinal fascia becomes scarred from inflammation, injury, postural habits or disease, its tension adversely impacts functional mobility and physical activity.  Symptoms may be remote from the apparent area of injury, including referred pain, stiffness, muscle weakness, nerve impingement, organ dysfunction, and abnormal sensations.  Manual release of the abnormal tension is essential to manage painful restrictions and to restore mobility and function. Learn how to identify fascial restrictions using motion testing and palpation. Apply specific MFR interventions to stretch mobility impairments, improve circulation, and decrease pain in people presenting with LBP to achieve improved functional outcomes.

Learning Outcomes

Upon completion of this program, participants will be able to:

  1. Explain the anatomy and function of the fascia and how myofascial release (MFR) may be used to modify scar tissue restrictions which limit mobility.
  2. Discuss the theory and evidence supporting myofascial release as an intervention to improve mobility and function.
  3. Apply selected myofascial techniques to the lumbosacral region to lengthen restricted tissue and improve functional mobility.

Myofascial Relase Clinical Applications – 2- day – Live Workshop

by allisonronis on June 29, 2017 Comments Off on Myofascial Relase Clinical Applications – 2- day – Live Workshop

By: Theresa A. Schmidt, DPT, MS, OCS, LMT, CEAS

Course Description

Patients often present challenging symptoms with chronic pain, which may not show typical dermotomal or myotomal patterns. The symptoms may be remote from the apparent area of injury, including referred pain, stiffness, muscle weakness and abnormal sensations. Many of these clients are experiencing myofascial dysfunction. Myofascial restrictions do not appear on standard x-rays, MRIs, or examinations. It is best diagnosed by the skill of a manual therapy practitioner, using motion testing and posture analysis. Myofascial restrictions can influence posture and movement patterns. Myofascial dysfunction may become symptomatic from months to years post-injury. It may occur at the point when the body has maximized its adaptive potential and loses the ability to compensate for abnormal tissue tension. Standard treatment protocols using medication, exercise and modalities may fail to address the problem effectively. Manual release of these abnormal tension barriers is essential to manage painful restrictions and to restore motion. In this course, you will learn how to differentiate between myofascial conditions such as myofascial pain syndrome and fibromyalgia, identify motion restrictions through hands on motion testing and palpation and learn the basics of how to apply MFR to improve tissue mobility, circulation, and posture, and decrease painful restrictions using this gentle manual therapy technology to achieve improved functional outcomes across the lifespan.

 

Learning Outcomes

Upon completion of this program, participants will be able to:

  1. Describe the intricate anatomy and function of our complex fascial system.
  2. Perform a myofascial evaluation of posture observation and motion testing of the skin and muscles to identify motion barriers.
  3. Discuss indications and contraindications for myofascial release.
  4. Define myofascial pain syndrome and fibromyalgia and discuss the differences between them.
  5. Apply myofascial skin glide, skin rolling, cross-hand releases, laminar releases.
  6. Apply myofascial muscle play, circular friction, z-friction, elbowing, knuckling, distraction.
  7. Apply myofascial respiratory diaphragm release, and psoas release to improve functional mobility as part of a therapeutic program.
  8. Discuss the evidence-based research regarding the impact of the fascial system and efficacy of myofascial release.
