Description:
Clinical Orthopedic Manual Therapy (COMT) of the Low Back and Pelvis is a 2-day hands-on workshop that covers beginner, intermediate, and advanced assessment and treatment techniques for the manual therapist when working on the client’s low back and pelvis. The topics covered are: body mechanics for deep pressure techniques; working the psoas major safely and effectively; stretching techniques for the low back and pelvis, including functional group stretching and advanced multiplane, contract relax (CR; also known as PIR or PNF) and agonist contract (AC; basis of AIS) techniques; and joint mobilization techniques for the sacroiliac and lumbar spinal joints, including traction. The underlying mechanisms for the assessment and treatment techniques of the low back and pelvis are discussed and explained. The approach of this workshop is to teach from the perspective of critical thinking so the therapist can creatively apply the techniques for clinical orthopedic work on their clients.

Critical Myofascial Strategies; The Upper Extremities- New Paltz @ One Epic Place
Oct 13 @ 9:00 pm – Oct 14 @ 4:30 pm

When: October 13-14 , 2018
Time: 9-4:30
Where: One Epic Place, New Paltz
CEH’s: 15

Description:
“Think globally act locally” is as apropos in bodywork as in politics. Myofascial Strategies are local, soft tissue interventions informed by an understanding of that body’s global structure. In this course, functional, visual, and palpatory assessments are demonstrated and practiced, and a framework of key relationships of body parts is provided. (eg: anterior scalpular tilt with elbow flexor shortness). Numerous, novel myofascial techniques are demonstrated and practiced, often with a client-active component. Beyond prone and supine, sidelying, and seated and methods are offered, with an eye to percolate new thinking as to how myofascial work can be applied and received. Additionally, various stretches and exercises, designed to augment the myofascial work, will be outlined for “homework” for the proactive client.

This location has massage tables available so you only need to bring sheets and lotion.


PRESENTER: Richard Condon

Richard Condon has been an LMT for 17 years and a certified Rolfer for 7. He has studied structural and visceral work, and taken a week-long cadaver dissection
class. In addition to private practice Richard has worked for over 7 years with an Osteopathic doctor in Manhattan. Always intrigued by structural asymmetries, their
causes, consequences and corrections, Richard approaches bodywork from a biomechanical perspective.
