Two Integrated Approaches to Shoulder Pain: Anatomy Trains & Orthopedic Massage
|Dates||Jun 14, 2013 – Jun 16, 2013|
9AM - 6PM
Join Tom Myers and Ben Benjamin to blend two unique, complementary approaches to shoulder pain and dysfunction. Shoulder mobility means vulnerability to pain and injury. The intricate anatomy of the joint, fascia, muscles, tendons and ligaments requires precise work, guided by a clear understanding of the mechanisms of injury and the hallmarks of good function. Take this rare opportunity to receive intensive training on the shoulder from two leading experts who will teach in tandem, sharing their expertise on shoulder injury assessment, treatment and integration with skill honed over decades of teaching and practice.
From Tom Myers, learn the Anatomy Trains perspective. Our shoulders and arms are part of what makes us human, but with ample opportunity for misuse and dysfunction. In this course, you will learn to assess and access the core myofasciae that determine shoulder position and integrated function, as well techniques for the more superficial coordinating muscles. You will learn and utilize the four Anatomy Trains Myofascial Meridians that traverse the arm and the Functional Lines that anchor the shoulders to the hips. You'll walk away with an integrated understanding of how the shoulder points the hand, and how to work at some distance from the site of pain or injury to affect permanent change.
From Ben Benjamin, learn the Orthopedic Massage perspective. Dr. Benjamin's teaching will focus in on the specific shoulder structures that are most commonly injured. You'll learn how to differentiate muscle-tendon injuries within the fascial network from joint and bursa inflammations, and you'll fine-tune your palpation skills and hands-on treatment techniques. This portion of the training includes five major components: 1. Anatomy (locating and palpating the relevant musculoskeletal structures) 2. Assessment (practicing assessment tests for specific injuries) 3. Theory (using the history, assessment test findings, and palpation to determine which structures are injured) 4. Integration (integrating the theoretical background and assessment procedures through hands-on learning games and mock clinics) 5. Technique (discussing, practicing, and reviewing detailed treatment techniques to eliminate adhesive scar tissue).
By the end of the course, you will have developed a rich new foundation of knowledge and skills for working with the shoulder in ways you never thought possible.
