Functional Anatomy and Treatment: Low Back and Hips- Southern Tier @ Johnson City Senior Center
Oct 21 @ 9:00 am – 6:00 pm

CE’s: 8

Class ​Description:

This ​course ​approaches ​the ​several ​things ​we ​think ​of ​as ​the ​lower ​back, ​the ​area ​from ​the ​lower ​ribcage ​to ​the ​sitting ​bones. ​The ​anatomy ​of ​the ​area ​is ​briefly ​covered, ​along ​with ​the ​miraculous ​multitasking ​of ​the ​lower ​back ​and ​abdomen, ​center ​of ​our ​core ​strength, ​seat ​of ​many ​of ​our ​most ​important ​organs, ​lifer ​of ​our ​legs, ​flexible ​support ​for ​much ​of ​the ​body’s ​weight, ​and ​connector ​of ​our ​two ​weight-bearing ​organs ​– ​the ​legs ​– ​to ​the ​weight ​masses ​of ​the ​upper ​body, ​to ​make ​standing, ​balance, ​gait ​and ​gesture ​possible ​without ​falling ​over. ​Approaches ​to ​restoring ​both ​strength ​and ​flexibility ​in ​this ​crucial ​area ​will ​be ​discussed, ​as ​well ​as ​the ​role ​a ​healthy ​lower ​torso ​and ​legs ​must ​play ​in ​holding ​us ​together ​while ​at ​the ​same ​time ​leaving ​the ​upper ​body ​free ​for ​breathing, ​doing ​crucial ​things ​with ​our ​arms ​with ​grace ​and ​dexterity, ​and ​expressing ​ourselves ​to ​others.

Class ​Description:

It’s ​time ​we ​walked ​right ​up ​to ​the ​foot ​and ​ankle ​and ​took ​a ​good ​look. ​It’s ​easy ​to ​give ​a ​lovely ​foot ​rub, ​but ​the ​first ​seventeen ​times ​I ​studied ​the ​foot’s ​workings, ​I ​was ​completely ​confused. ​The ​foot ​is ​still ​a ​marvel ​to ​me ​– ​a ​beautiful, ​brilliant, ​multi-use ​part ​of ​the ​body. ​We’ll ​examine ​the ​foot ​as ​a ​stable ​foundation ​and ​powerful ​propeller ​of ​the ​body. ​We’ll ​review ​anatomy ​that’s ​immediately ​useful ​in ​the ​massage ​room, ​functions ​and ​dysfunctions ​of ​the ​foot, ​new ​techniques ​and ​theories ​of ​walking ​and ​running, ​exercises ​to ​strengthen ​the ​foot, ​on ​the ​table ​and ​in ​home ​care, ​and ​practice ​lots ​of ​techniques ​to ​make ​the ​foot ​work ​and ​feel ​better

Functional Anatomy and Treatment: The Knee -Western Finger Lakes @ ROC City Wellness

Class ​Description

Everybody ​knows ​somebody ​with ​knee ​trouble, ​and ​it’s ​a ​major ​complaint ​of ​body ​work ​clients. ​The ​knee ​is ​complex ​in ​humans, ​who ​stand ​on ​two, ​rather ​than ​four ​legs. ​When ​alignment ​is ​altered ​anywhere ​in ​the ​body, ​we ​usually ​see ​a ​trace ​of ​it ​in ​the ​knee. ​But ​the ​knee ​can ​be ​confusing ​to ​understand ​and ​treat. ​Most ​of ​its ​muscles ​cross ​two ​joints ​and ​have ​their ​major ​business ​elsewhere. ​What’s ​more, ​each ​of ​the ​knees ​has ​two ​separate ​joints, ​two ​separate ​discs, ​and ​two ​sets ​of ​very ​different ​major ​ligaments. ​We’ll ​learn ​the ​functional ​anatomy ​of ​the ​knee, ​the ​muscles ​and ​ligaments ​that ​affect ​the ​knee, ​postural ​clues ​to ​assessing ​knee ​problems, ​patient ​education ​tips, ​and ​palpatory/treatment ​techniques ​to ​improve ​standing ​alignment ​and ​knee ​function

About ​the ​Instructor

Lisa ​Satalino

 

After ​graduating ​from ​Russell ​Sage ​College ​in ​1986 ​I ​have ​practiced ​physical ​therapy ​with ​a ​specialization ​in ​the ​area ​of ​Myofascial ​Release ​and ​Craniosacral ​Therapy. ​ ​I ​have ​taken ​all ​of ​John ​F. ​Barnes’ ​courses ​and ​passed ​his ​Proficiency ​Assessment, ​and ​have ​served ​as ​an ​assistant ​instructor ​and ​coordinator ​for ​John ​F. ​Barnes’ ​seminars ​nationally.

I ​created ​the ​MFR ​curriculum ​for ​the ​Center ​for ​Natural ​Wellness ​School ​of ​Massage ​Therapy ​in ​1999 ​and ​continue ​to ​oversee ​the ​ongoing ​development ​of ​this ​curriculum ​at ​present. ​ ​Additionally ​I ​have ​developed ​a ​118 ​hour ​Certification ​program ​in ​MFR ​and ​co-created ​a ​16 ​hour ​seminar ​on ​the ​foot ​and ​its ​relationship ​to ​upper ​chain ​disorders ​for ​the ​Professional ​Continued ​Education ​Division ​of ​CNWSMT ​- ​an ​approved ​provider ​of ​continued ​education ​for ​licensed ​physical ​therapists ​and ​massage ​therapists. ​ ​More ​recently ​I ​have ​developed ​curriculum ​to ​support ​athletic ​training ​practices ​based ​on ​updates ​in ​fascial ​research ​and ​have ​developed ​and ​implemented ​injury ​prevention ​practices ​and ​rehabilitation ​for ​a ​local ​USAG ​gymnastics ​team.

My ​clinical ​experience ​includes ​working ​in ​home ​care, ​early ​intervention, ​the ​school ​setting, ​rehabilitation, ​private ​practice, ​and ​with ​equine ​athletes ​and ​gymnasts. ​I ​have ​been ​certified ​in ​Fascial ​Movement ​Taping ​Levels ​1 ​and ​2 ​and ​am ​a ​NYS ​certified ​early ​intervention ​provider.

At ​present ​I ​am ​the ​Executive ​Director ​of ​the ​Center ​for ​Natural ​Wellness ​School ​of ​Massage ​Therapy ​where ​I ​oversee ​and ​manage ​all ​operations ​of ​this ​private ​trade ​school, ​its ​working ​clinic, ​bookstore, ​and ​Professional ​Education ​program.
