Tuesday, November 5, 3:45 - 5:45 PM

Instructor: Margo Hayes, MS, PT 

Course Goals: 

Therapists will gain increased understanding and skill mastery regarding spinal mechanics, identification of a key biomechanical-segmental hindrance, localization of treatment to that restricted joint segment(s), as well as application of appropriately titrated resistance and/or assistance to affected joint and muscular tissues thus optimizing mobility and function for the patient.

    

Course Description: 

This course is recommended for physical and occupational therapists that completed the basic muscle energy, sequencing, and functional courses in manual physical therapy. During 9 two-hour mentorship sessions (utilizing lecture, demonstrations, and labs directed towards specific regions of the body), essential elements of evaluation and treatment strategies for the spine, extremities, will be reviewed with emphasis on direct instructor/therapist guidance to promote increased mastery of manual therapy evaluation and treatment techniques utilizing muscle energy and functional-indirect approaches. Thus the intent is to keep the class size small. In addition, due to the brevity of the class, participants will be encouraged to review previous class notes prior to each session.

Specific Skill Acquisition

  1. Complete a spinal evaluation to determine the most restricted segment of motion.

  2. Determine the appropriate intervention for an identified restrictive barrier. 

  3. Apply appropriate localized and vectored forces to optimize results. 

  4. Reassess joint mobility to determine efficacy of treatment. 

Accreditation

For Physical Therapists and Occupational Therapists: 18 contact hours will be approved in the state of Oklahoma.

Saturday, November 2, 9 AM - 1 PM

Instructor: Micha Sale, P.T., M.Ed.

This yearlong course is designed to enable the participants to become proficient at manual physical therapy

treatment utilizing the osteopathic approach of treatment that Edward Stiles, D.O.

has taught for many years throughout the country.
Participants will fine-tune their spinal assessment, functional release and sequencing techniques

to improve the efficacy and efficiency of treatments and patient care outcomes. 

Strain/Counterstrain techniques will also be introduced.

Course Goals and Description:

This course is a combination lecture/lab/demonstration course to instruct participants in the principles, evaluation, and treatment techniques involved in the diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal disorders of the upper and lower half of the body utilizing strain/counterstrain techniques and functional indirect techniques.  A comparison will be made of these techniques and also complementary use of the techniques

Three 4-hour sessions over one year will enable participant’s ample time to integrate the material and utilize information in clinical practice. There will be one, one-hour private tutorial to be scheduled between sessions 1 and 2 to further enhance skill levels. This will enable the practitioner to have a comprehensive treatment approach for use with difficult musculoskeletal dysfunctions. Participants are encouraged to schedule another private tutorial between sessions 2 and 3 to further improve skill level.

Audience:

This course will be appropriate for those participants who are familiar with the basic principles and direct muscle energy/functional indirect treatment philosophy of Edward Stiles, D.O. and all barrier concepts, as well as those wanting to develop manual therapy skills at a higher level.

Accreditation

For Physical Therapists and Occupational Therapists: 13 contact hours will be approved in the state of Oklahoma.

This course will include:

  • Basic principles of Strain/Counterstrain, Functional Indirect Release.

  • Application of these techniques for treatment of musculoskeletal dysfunctions

  • Advanced, fine-tuning of the engagement of the feather edge of the restrictive barriers in the M-S system.

  • Advanced sequencing skills for mechanical joint, myofascial and gait dysfunctions

  • Lab checkouts to ensure proper application of each technique to each area of the body

  • Lab checkouts to ensure proper localization and fine-tuning of forces
