Most PT school programs only teach the actions of muscles. This course teaches each muscle’s function, and how to use anatomy to diagnose your patients better when a problem is due to a muscle dysfunction. You'll also learn how to fix the muscle dysfunctions of hypertonicity and hypotonicity so dysfunctions don’t return, as well as evidence-based treatment for tendinosis and concepts needed for functional retraining of muscles. All these techniques will enable you to direct your patients to a quicker, more successful recovery.
As with all our manual therapy courses, this course is at least 75% hands-on lab, and will give the participant skills they can use immediately upon their return to the clinical setting. Participants should have a basic knowledge of anatomy as this is an applied anatomy course.
