This course provides a thorough overview of the pathophysiology, etiology and effective hands-on treatment of myofascial pain involving myofascial trigger points.
John Sharkey is a clinical anatomist, exercise physiologist, founder of European Neuromuscular Therapy (ENMT) and a recognized authority in the treatment of myofascial pain. John has been a senior tutor with Ireland’s National Training Centre (NTC) delivering courses in touch therapies and health related human movement studies integrating tensegrity principles into the courses since 1985.
Join John as he explains tensegrity-based concepts that lead to effective touch therapy interventions which are safe, effective and restorative.
This series of three two-hour lessons covers:
Why consider myofascial trigger points in the treatment of chronic and acute myofascial pain?
What is tensegrity/biotensegrity and why is it important?
“X” does not mark the spot
Palpation techniques-skin drag, thermal palpation, thumb and digital neuromuscular techniques, integrated osseofascial inhibition technique (IOIT)
Considering the cellular level
From micro to macro
A new hypothesis concerning the genesis of the myofascial trigger point
A clinical anatomist’s point of view
Central versus attachment myofascial trigger points (primary versus secondary myofascial trigger points)
Standards and guidelines
Risks and cautions in myofascial trigger point treatments
