Myofascial Trigger Point Therapy & Orthopedic Friction: Workshop
Additionally, practitioners working with soft tissue fail to apply techniques to address tendons, ligaments, and fascial attachment sites. Orthopedic friction is often the missing link. This form of soft tissue manipulation improves connective tissue mobility, breaks down and realigns scar tissue, and deactivates myofascial trigger points in ligaments and periosteum attachments of tendons.
Both of these advanced techniques are powerful and indispensable tools that should be part of every canine massage therapist and rehab practitioner’s toolbox. Myofascial trigger point therapy is a time efficient way to assess tissue health, and it effectively decreases pain, increases range of motion, and assists in tissue healing which allows ongoing strengthening and rehabilitation. Orthopedic friction improves connective tissue mobility, breaks down and realigns scar tissue, and deactivates myofascial trigger points in ligaments and periosteum attachments of tendons.
In this workshop, participants learn how to apply myofascial trigger point and orthopedic friction techniques to specific structures for all soft tissue injuries and to promote overall healing.
