Course Description:

Some of the most common treatments for helping patients overcome chronic pain and overuse injuries can leave them in worse shape than when they arrived. Protocols rooted in the ‘no pain, no gain’ mentality often work against patients, activating self-defense mechanisms that freeze muscles, compress nerves, and sharpen pain. Many therapists add myofascial release to the mix because it’s less invasive, but misapplications and outdated techniques will yield little relief and can be just as harmful to outcomes.

As time passes without progress, even the most promising patient can plateau early, growing disengaged and depressed – convinced therapy is a waste of time.

Prove them wrong.

Master cutting-edge myofascial release techniques in this hands-on seminar, and discover innovative interventions you can apply immediately for faster, longer lasting results. Built on today’s best practices, this program will show you how to better identify root causes of impairment and effectively combine MFR with tape, IASTM, exercise, and self-care to eliminate pain and improve functional outcomes. Discover effective, evidence-based treatment protocols that have helped countless patients leave their limitations behind.

Sign up today and leave this one-of-a-kind training knowing that whether your next patient hopes to return to work or play, you’ll be able to confidently guide her toward rapid improvements with the best methods available in myofascial release!
