This class will show you an entirely different way to treat the knee. It focuses on a manual therapy approach to treatment of knee dysfunction, including joint mobilizations, meniscal mobilizations and myofascial / soft tissue releases. Multiple taping techniques are shown for dysfunctions at the patella and the tibio-femoral joints. You will also learn how dysfunctions above and below the knee can cause symptoms at the knee joint itself. It gives a clinician tools to treat knee pain in ways they have never seen before.
As with all of our manual therapy courses, this seminar will follow a progression of principles and reinforce them throughout the 16 hours, is at least 75% hands-on lab, and will give the clinician hands-on skills they use immediately upon their return to the clinical setting
