Details about the Osseofascial Techniques for Unresolved Myofascial Pain Workshop. If you have further queries don’t hesitate to contact us on 01 882 7777 in Dublin.
This two-day workshop is best suited for advanced manual therapists. Understanding the human fascial system as an integrated three-dimensional continuity, as opposed to the traditional two-dimensional descriptions in classical anatomy textbooks, will increase your clinical success in treating difficult chronic pain patients. Clinical anatomist John Sharkey will provide up-to-date research concerning the fascial system and its poorly understood implication in numerous myofascial pain disorders. The techniques that will be demonstrated are, for the most part, bespoke and unique as they include direct and indirect osseofascial applications that require advanced palpation skills for effective intervention.
This practical hands-on workshop will be supported by a visually rich keynote presentation providing unique human cadaver images of the superficial and deep fascia. Plastinated specimens and other anatomical fascia models will be on display for course participants to enhance the learning experience.
Taking a global account of each individual patient’s fascia imprint allows for a personalised programme of soft tissue intervention that will integrate neural, hydraulic, fibrillar, integumentary, superficial and deep fascia organisation in a temporal approach based on physiological hierarchy.
A specific set of assessments, information gathering and special tests based on advanced anatomy and physiology will complement a combined global and local treatment approach setting the stage for manual therapy interventions that will ensure a return to allostasis and pain-free motion.
