Integrated Neuromuscular Re-education: Positional Release
Discipline(s): Physical Therapy / Occupational Therapy
Contact Hours: 4
Registration Fee: $116
At the end of this course the professional will be able to
Discuss the theoretical basis and evidence-based research for positional release/strain-counterstrain
Assess the musculoskeletal system using palpation to identify trigger points (TPs)
Identify positions that reduce the pain and sensitivity of TPs to allow relaxation of abnormal muscle tension
Apply positional release techniques as part of a treatment plan to reduce painful trigger points and spasm, and to improve range of motion and function
Occupational Therapists, Occupational Therapist Assistants, Physical Therapists, Physical Therapist Assistants, and Athletic Trainers.
“Integrated Neuromuscular Re-Education: Positional Release” is an introductory hands-on approach to correction of biomechanical (somatic) dysfunction, using positional release (strain-counterstrain) and muscle energy therapy/ PNF (Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation). This course introduces positional release. The goals of INMR are to restore normal soft tissue tone and elasticity, relieve pain, improve strength, and optimize performance.
Identification and correction of abnormal neuromuscular tension, painful trigger points, motion restrictions and strength deficits are the focus of this course. Techniques learned during this course may be immediately applied in a variety of clinical situations. A review of the current evidence-based literature illustrates the efficacy of these interventions. This course includes lecture based on current evidence, and demonstration of hands-on techniques. Clinical cases are discussed to illustrate application of INMR into practice.
This Seminar-on-Demand is 4 contact hours in length (check your state’s approval status in the state specific course catalog for your profession).
