The first day includes Lecture Tutorials of the history and development of the Kinesio Tex Tapes and the Kinesio Taping Method. The science and theory regarding how stimulus is transmitted through the skin and the resulting therapeutic benefit across efferent and afferent systems is reviewed. Taping concepts are presented in a "superficial to deep" progression. Day One includes corrections for Epidermis, Dermis, Superficial and Deep Fascia, Space and Muscle in case study format for a variety of conditions. Each application is explained and demonstrated by the instructor. During the ample lab time, participants then perform the Manual Assessments and Movement Assessments and follow step by step instructions for correct taping technique based on the case study presented. Time is allotted for questions and group discussions regarding clinical reasoning for each correction and cut of tape, as part of clinical services and intervention procedures concerning such disorders within the participant's discipline and parameter of service. Time is allotted for questions and discussion of the assessment flowcharts to determine correct applications and general progression of treatment clinically. Participants will be instructed on the testing rubric for Day 2.Day Two builds in the material in Day One completing the Muscle Correction with assessments and labs. This day continues with instruction and demonstration of assessment and taping procedures for the Mechanical, Tendon, Ligament and Circulatory/Lymphatic Corrections in case study format. During lab sessions, participants will have ample time to practice new Manual and Movement Assessments and correct taping techniques for conditions involving head positioning, cervical, thoracic and lumbar spine, upper limbs and trunk. Time is allotted for questions and discussion of the assessment flow charts to determine correct applications and general progression of treatment clinically. At the conclusion of Day Two, participants are required to participate in a practical exam of basic taping technique. In order for participants to receive credit, they must attend both seminar days (No partial credit will be given). Attendees must also pass the Kinesio University exam to attain the Kinesio University certificate for the course. All participants will receive a full color Kinesio Taping Workbook and a 6-day access code to the KTAI database. Participants will need to bring scissors and dress appropriately to be prepared for trunk, upper and lower extremity taping (Tank tops, shorts or similar clothing is recommended to wear during both days of the class).Instructor: Elizabeth G. Harvey, PT, DPT, MSR, CKTI, CEIM Charlotte AHEC, NC AHEC system, is an approved provider by the North Carolina Board of Physical Therapy Examiners with regard to activities directly related to physical therapy for continued competence.

# 415 Myofascial Release Therapy… Soft Tissue Mobilization for Pain Management and Improved Mobility

 

Contact Name:
Scott Boston

Organization:
Motivations, Inc.

Date(s) of Event:
September 26-27, 2020

Location / Venue for Event:
Raleigh, NC (WakeMed Health & Hospitals)

Summary of Event:
Fascia is a three-dimensional matrix of tissue that envelopes every system of the body. When fascia becomes bound down or scarred from inflammation, injury, postural habits or disease, the tension adversely impacts multiple systems, especially the neuromusculoskeletal system. Symptoms may be remote from the apparent area of injury, including referred pain, stiffness, muscle weakness, nerve impingement, organ dysfunction, and abnormal sensations. Many of these clients are experiencing myofascial dysfunction. Myofascial restrictions do not appear on standard x-rays, MRIs, or examinations. It is best diagnosed by the skill of a manual therapy practitioner. Myofascial dysfunction may become symptomatic from months to years post-injury. Patients often present challenging symptoms with chronic pain, which may not show typical dermotomal or myotomal patterns. It may occur at the point when the body has maximized its adaptive potential and loses the ability to compensate for abnormal tension. Standard treatment protocols using medication, exercise and modalities may fail to address the problem effectively. Manual release of the abnormal tension is essential to manage painful restrictions and to restore mobility and function. In this lab-based course, you will learn how to differentiate between myofascial conditions such as myofascial pain syndrome and fibromyalgia, identify motion restrictions through posture screening, hands on motion testing and palpation. You will learn how to apply MFR to improve mobility, circulation, and posture, and decrease painful restrictions using this gentle manual therapy technology to achieve improved functional outcomes across the lifespan.

Significant anatomical/kinesiological and developmental characteristics of typical rib cage alignment and activity will be reviewed. Atypical rib cage activity in infants and young children with neuromuscular involvement will be discussed. Treatment strategies directed toward improving rib cage and respiratory musculature activity will be explored through group movement lab sessions and audiovisual presentations.

Date(s) of Event:
September 11-12, 2020

Location / Venue for Event:
Asheville, NC (Hilton Asheville Biltmore Park)

Summary of Event:
Research indicates that the prevalence of pediatric feeding and swallowing disorders is 80% in the special needs population and 20% in typically developing children. Therefore, most pediatric clinicians will encounter this disorder in some form or another. Feeding disorders come in all shapes and sizes, such as coughing/choking during meals, poor oral-motor skill acquisition, food refusal, oral aversion, g-tube dependence and more. One must be versed in oral-motor and swallowing techniques, respiration, GI issues, nutrition, motor/postural alignment, and behavioral strategies. This is a two-day course focusing on how to approach pediatric feeding and swallowing disorders, how to diagnose and prioritize treatment options, and ensure successful outcomes for you and your patients. Day one will concentrate on medical and nutritional intervention strategies, while day two will focus on evaluation and therapeutic intervention. If child
