•Confidently describe and independently state the rationale for doing Myofascial Release and its specific effect
•Correctly demonstrate proper hand technique, grading of the level of touch, and the effects of a release
•Correctly describe the importance of fluid fascial movement in a 3 dimensional system, allowing for the physiologic system to have the ability to provide resilience to dysfunction
•Confidently describe the different layers of fascia and know when to treat each layer
•Confidently explain and independently state how specific myofascial restrictions in different parts of the body can create the orthopedic dysfunctions that we treat on a daily basis

This class will help you to learn a clinically and anatomically based approach to myofascial release. We focus on how the muscle and fascia create dysfunction in the body, increase the stress on the system and cause symptoms that become common diagnoses that we treat every day. Learn to integrate this effective tool into your daily treatment and expand the options you have to treat dysfunction.
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.
