Advanced Muscle Energy with Clinical Correlations

November 6, 2020 - November 10, 2020

This course expands upon previous training on the use of muscle contraction as an activating force, particularly Muscle Energy: Level I. A lecture, a demonstration, and small group practice session format will review and enhance the concepts of muscle contraction and its use throughout the musculoskeletal system, including upper extremities and the vertebral column. More advanced techniques will be provided for the pelvis and spine. Muscle energy techniques for the upper and lower extremities will be given. Problem solving and integration with exercise principles will be emphasized. Students are requested to bring past experiences with muscle energy techniques for group discussion.

Upon completion of this course, the participant will be able to:

  1. Review material from Muscle Energy: Part I
  2. Apply muscle energy principles of the upper and lower extremities
  3. Expand muscle energy principles in problem solving
  4. Integrate exercise principles into a patient orientated self-directed treatment plan

Prerequisite: Principles of Manual Medicine and Muscle Energy: Part I. Exercise Prescription as a Complement to Manual Medicine, Direct Action Thrust: Mobilization with Impulse, Manual Medicine Related to Sports and Occupational Extremities, and Integrated Neuromuscular and Myofascial Release are recommended but not required.
