Myofascial Release Clinical Apps- Home Study 4 hrs. CE

Faculty: Theresa A. Schmidt, PT,DPT,MS,OCS,LMT,CEAS,CHy

Course Description
Patients often present challenging symptoms which may be remote from the apparent area of injury, with referred pain, trigger points, stiffness, weakness and abnormal sensitivity, due to myofascial dysfunction. Myofascial restrictions do not appear on x-rays, MRIs, or exams. It is best diagnosed by the skill of a manual therapy clinician and diagnostic ultrasound. Myofascial restrictions can impair functional mobility and contribute to poor posture. Standard treatment protocols using medication, exercise and modalities may fail to address the problem effectively. Mofascial release (MFR) has been shown to manage painful restrictions and restore motion. Differentiate between myofascial pain and fibromyalgia, and identify motion restrictions through motion testing and palpation. Understand the basics of how to apply MFR to improve mobility, circulation, and posture, and decrease pain using this gentle manual therapy to achieve improved functional outcomes.
