OMM Advanced Approach

June 15, 2019 - June 16, 2019

The myofascial connective tissue system is one of only three holistic systems in the body. International Fascial Conferences where scientists and clinicians have come together to share what is known about this system have only been occurring since 2005. The fascial system has been likened to what Star Trek called the final frontier. Evidence has shown the fascial system to be a connective structural system as well as a communication system.

Twisted or imbalanced patterns in the fascial system can be the root cause to chronic pain or recurrent exacerbations to back and joint pain. If you do not have a manipulative medicine technique in your tool box to address the fascial system, this may be why you are not able to optimally improve many patients’ pain or structural problems.

One reason many do not implement myofascial techniques is they feel they take too long to implement in a busy practice. At this program, Trish Murray, DO, who has taught CME courses in OMM for over a decade, will teach how combining the indirect positioning of Strain-counterstrain can be utilized as the initial positioning and if you treat at the myofascial level the treatment typically only takes from 15 to 20 seconds.
