Learning outcomes:
Upon completion of this course participants will be able to…

… identify tissue specific structure (muscle, fascia, tendon, bone, ligament, nerve and viscera)
… review of current literature and contraindications, indications and application
… generate a list of indications, application and dosing protocols
… apply the basic evidence based outcome protocol

Step 1 – Functional range of motion (ROM) screen
Step 2 – Locate area of restriction or adhesion
Step 3 – Detailed muscle testing and palpation
Step 4 – Use instrument on specific adhesions and improve mobility
Step 5 – Re-Test to show yourself and the client the results!

… apply the appropriate IASTM treatment edge based on the target tissue and desired treatment effect
… discuss case study specific application in practice
… achieve better client results by identifying the true cause of pathology and working smarter not harder

Class format:
Hands on anatomy and palpation review (bone, ligament, joint, muscle, nerve, vessel, fascia)
Evidence based clinical integration of assessment with pathology and evidence informed treatment options listed below:
Efficient biomechanics – work smarter instead of harder to prevent injury and get better results
Assessment Orthopedic and neurologic testing – have an accurate clinical understanding of the patient-specific injury, compensation and dysfunction, differential diagnosis.
IASTM use of instruments and critical thinking to improve results and decrease clinician fatigue by specific tissue and body region – indications, contra indications, basic and advanced
