Event Description

The goal of this course is to provide clinicians with new hands-on manual therapy tools and approaches to treat the myofascial system and integrate their understanding of movement and neuromuscular re-education with manual therapy. Techniques to include appropriate application of soft tissue mobilization with proper identification of active versus latent trigger points and fascial plane restrictions.

 

ABOUT THE COURSE

The utilization of Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM) tools in   manual therapy has become increasingly popular over the last 10 years, especially in the sports medicine and fitness settings. There has traditionally been a gap in the literature for the appropriate dosage, timing, and frequency for the proper application of IASTM for musculoskeletal lesions in the physical therapy and athletic training arenas.

 

This course will review the structural functions of connective tissue elements in various layers of tissues and pathologies, expose the listener to the large variety of IASTM tools that are now out in the market, and propose general treatment strategies for common orthopedic and sports impairments. In this one-day course you will learn to increase the efficiency of motion with negative pressure tools through fascial mobility and neuromuscular re-education. The IASTM techniques in this course will take the difficulty out of integrating a strong manual-based approach to musculoskeletal disorders

 

The majority of manual therapy we utilize is very compressive in nature: STM, MFR,

joint mobilizations. Myofascial Decompression (MFD) is one of the few techniques that works in the decompression of the connective tissue and musculoskeletal systems. The needs assessment presented for the MFD course will integrate negative pressure tools with Western evidence

based physiologic principles and evidence-based medical foundations.

 

Participants will be able to evaluate their ability to intervene appropriately using IASTM tools by describing safety, competency, precautions, contraindications, and appropriate timing, and demonstrating effective interventions with efficient approach and mechanics. Prior knowledge of basic manual therapy concepts and movement science is recommended.

 

COURSE OBJECTIVES

PARTICIPANTS WILL BE ABLE TO:

·      Review the layers, subunits, and function of the connective tissue system.

·      Summarize the role collagen may play in affecting movement patterns and the gap in science on stretching and length-tension curves.

·      Define the terms tensegrity and thixotropy as they relate to creep and hysteresis tissue texture abnormalities and movement.

·      Distinguish differences in manual therapy approaches utilizing various IASTM tools and the difference in movement-driven soft tissue massage.

·      Describe common IASTM interventions that improve mobility of the CT system, as it relates to neuromuscular re-education and movement.

 

SUBJECTS COVERED

·      Connective tissue system structure and function; movement impairments

·      Healing response in normal and abnormal tissues

·      Imaging research on connective tissues and trigger points

·      Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization techniques and applications

·      Neuromuscular re-education principles in combination with IASTM

Christopher DaPrato DPT, SCS, CSCS, PES,MFDc

Lead Instructor, Innovator

Dr. DaPrato currently treats professional and NCAA athletes at UC San Francisco and UC Berkeley, while teaching in the Orthopedic Residency for their School of Medicine. He is a strong proponent and educator for manual therapy in sports and has presented evidence informed practices at conferences both nationally and internationally. After receiving his BS in Human Physiology, his Masters in Physical Therapy from Long Beach, and his Doctorate from Temple University, he went on to become Board Certified in

Sports through the APTA. His approach to patient care has become a blend of advanced level strength and conditioning with manual techniques, and received his CSCS through the NSCA, and certified as a Performance Enhancement Specialist from the National Academy of Sports Medicine.

 

CONTINUING EDUCATION UNITS

Bay Area Sport Performance and Rehabilitation (#1000747) is approved by NCBTMB to provide continuing education to Massage Therapists. This program is eligible for a maximum of 8 hours CEUs.

Cupping Massage

Used by multiple cultures for thousands of years, cupping therapy is believed to encourage blood flow in areas of the body that need relaxation and healing. Traditional methods use heat to warm cups that are then placed over the skin. As the cup cools, it creates a vacuum that gently draws the skin into the cup. Newer methods like vacuum therapy use mechanical aids to create suction.

Cupping CE courses are offered in both traditional and modern methods. Traditional methods include standard cupping and stronger suction methods like fire cupping. Modern methods include hand-pump suction and vacuum therapy. Oil-aided applications that allow the cup to be moved can be applied to most methods, and silicon cups can be used for facials and patients that bruise easily.
