Over the years of using physical medicine as a tool in my holistic health practice I have learned that there are patterns that the body uses to function. Dr. George Goodheart taught me that “The body is intricately simple and simply intricate” and other mentors have also proved this to me.
Most practitioners will work on some muscles and joints locally where there is pain or dysfunction. Some might even evaluate posture and gait. But few actually know the functional patterns of the body, in injury and in health.
My philosophy is that if you correct the patterns of the body, it will start fixing itself. It will reduce trigger points. It will correct joint dysfunction. It will balance inflammation.
- Do you know that a trigger point is usually only present because there is a inhibited muscle elsewhere?
- That low back dysfunction can be fixed from the cervical spine and vice versa?
- That there is a spiral of muscle inhibition that is supposed to take place when you flex or extend your body so that the spine will work more efficiently?
- That the Psoas is one of the most important muscle to evaluate for musculoskeletal balance?
Who is this class for?
If you are in a sports medicine based practice, general practice or holistic based practice, or a student going in this direction, this class is for you.
Functional Biomechanics, An Applied Kinesiology Approach to Physical Medicine is a 12.5 hour lecture and workshop weekend that teaches a muscle testing approach to functional biomechanics. You will learn how to tackle some of the most common musculoskeletal conditions from a holistic approach.
- You will learn the science and art of muscle testing
- Muscle diagnosis and function
- TMJ assessment
- Dynamic gait evaluation
- Spinal and pelvic evaluation and treatment
- Joint shearing and compaction injuries
- Upper and lower extremity joint/muscle correlation
Here are some examples of gait evaluation that you will learn.
