Muscle Energy: Part I

April 17, 2020 - April 21, 2020

This course expands upon previous training in manual medicine in the use of muscle contraction as an activating force. A lecture, demonstration and small group practice session format will emphasize the concepts of muscle contraction and its use in the treatment of dysfunction of the vertebral column and bony pelvis. Expansion of the structural diagnostic process will include definitive diagnosis of dysfunctions of the bony pelvis and diagnosis of dysfunctions on the vertebral column will be reviewed.

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

  1. Apply principles of isometric and isotonic muscle contraction and the physiology of the integration of the nervous system and the musculature
  2. Interpret the biomechanics of motion within the bony pelvis
  3. Identify dysfunctions of the joints of the pelvic girdle and vertebral column
  4. Identify and treat by muscle energy procedures structural dysfunctions of the rib cage
  5. Associate the role of exercise in evaluation and treatment using muscle energy technique
