This course is offered in cooperation with Elsevier Science and utilizes the softback textbook, “Muscle Energy Techniques”, 4th Edition by Leon Chaitow, ND, DO. These courses set out clear, practical and clinical guidelines for all students and practitioners wishing to use muscle energy techniques as part of their patient management. These techniques can be widely used with problems ranging from hypertonicity and muscle tightness to joint dysfunction and joint capsule adhesions.
Module 1 (Course 778): Covers how to use MET and applies the techniques to assessing and treating postural muscles
Module 2 (Course 779): Covers how to use MET and applies the techniques to assessing and treating joints
These courses are approved for 15.0 contact hours each. Note: When ordering a single module or an electronic download version, only the selected chapters are included in the reading materials. When ordering a standard bundle pack (not the electronic download version), the entire softback textbook with be sent with the order.
This package contains the reading and testing materials for Module 1 only.
Course Goals:
This course is intended to instruct the student through self-paced study on the use of muscle energy techniques in patient rehabilitation and to give the student a basic knowledge of treatment methods using muscle energy techniques for assessing and treating postural muscles.
