Myoskeletal Alignment Techniques for Neck, Shoulder, Low Back, Hips and Legs
With Senior Myoskeletal Instructor Paul Kelly
Workshop Time: 9:00-6:00 pm (Sign in starts at 8:30 am on Friday)

Please bring lotion, a pen, sheets, and a massage table. You should wear loose, comfortable clothing.
Contact: thetemple@templehp.com or 865-357-TMPL(8675) for more information about this workshop.

In this 2-day, 16 CE workshop,

Paul teaches assessment and treatment for the following conditions:

  • Ascending and Descending Syndromes
  • Foot, Ankle & Knee Pain
  • Low Back, Hip & SI Joint Disorders
  • Scoliosis
  • Thoracic Outlet Syndromes
  • Rotator Cuff, Carpal Tunnel & Thoracic Outlet Syndromes
  • Headaches & Neck Pain

Upgrade your skills, increase referrals and elevate your clients to a new state of health…the Myoskeletal Way!!!

Day 1: Paul begins with a workshop overview including relevant research from Erik Dalton’s “Dynamic Body” textbook. A video and powerpoint presentation explains how painful neck, shoulder, TMJ, and scoliotic patterns develop due to compensations known as “Descending Syndromes.” Assessment and treatment sessions teach participants how to correct these ‘top-down’ compensatory strain patterns and get the client out of pain.

Day 2: Low backs, SI joints, hip capsules, legs and feet are the focus today. Paul begins with a full-body “Ascending Syndrome’ functional assessment to help identify weak “key” links in the kinetic chain. Once length-strength muscle imbalances are located, corrective treatment strategies help rid the body of protective spasm, joint blockage and painful myofascial compensations. Home retraining and therapist self-care exercises are highlighted in this special section.
