Gross Anatomy Lab Lecture – Lower Body- Central New York
For centuries, Gross Anatomy has provided modern medicine with a strong foundation for exploration, information gathering, and research. Through the careful palpation of dissected cadavers, this class will offer massage therapists the ability to enhance their understanding of the human body and anatomy, especially the skeletal system. Students will receive an anatomy lecture and a corresponding palpation lab where they will don protective gear and explore skeletal & muscular structures of cadavers and cadaver sections. You will explore that area of the body thoroughly and explore some bodies with relative pathologies such as an ACL tear, rotator cuff injury, etc. In addition, Dr. Berg will offer a lecture overview of major pathologies or injuries common to those areas
This class can be applied toward the ”Specialty Certificate in Military Veterans Massage.” This is the first of its kind in the nation, click here for more details on this unique program.
