Kinetic Musculo-Rehab Technique

The basis of Kinetic Musculorehab Technique is a therapeutic modality that can be used by any profession dealing with biomechanical dysfunctions of the muscular system. When it comes to this type of trauma, all muscles respond the exact same way. They contract. If the muscles are contracted, the individual loses not only range of motion, but also muscle strength. The basis of Kinetic Musculorehab Technique is to learn how to treat muscles using their plane of action. This course teaches how to merge passive range of motion with other muscle release techniques allowing relief from pain through the elongation of the muscle fibers. This technique helps in breaking apart adhesion and scar tissue that limit muscle flexibility and length. By including ROM with treatment, you will be able to use less pressure and get the desired results. We will be covering common muscular injuries such as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Golfer’s/Tennis Elbow, Rotator Cuff issues among others.
