MTP course at Derby Hospital this Autumn with Mark Comerford

1st September 2016

On October 31 to 1 November Movement Maestro Mark Comerford will be delivering: 
L3 - MYOFASCIAL TRIGGER POINTS FOR MOVEMENT OPTIMISATION AND PAIN at Derby Hospital

This fun and interactive course will help you to use myofascial trigger point therapy in the management of: movement control impairments, clinical regional pain scenarios and complex regional pain syndromes. Clinic ready tools for immediate integration into practice.

Introduction

Chronic pain is now recognised as being an extremely complex multifactorial process. Myofascial trigger point therapy can be used in the management of peripheral neurogenic pain. However, MTPs can also be used to optimise movement control. MTP treatment can be used to increase extensibility and decrease recruitment dominance within dysfunctional global mobility muscles. Myofascial trigger point treatment is also used to facilitate recruitment of the global stability muscles and recover more optimum synergistic patterns.

From a more traditional perspective this course also presents the application of myofascial trigger point management within complex neurogenic pain presentations. This course is orientated to a 'hands on' practical application of myofascial trigger point management.

Course Aims:

This course will Help You:

  • The biology of the Myofascial Trigger Point (MTP)
  • How to identify active or pain producing myofascial trigger points
  • How to manually treat active MTPs
  • How to make links between active trigger points and global muscle imbalance
  • The use of MTPs to 'down-regulate' and increase functional extensibility in overactive multi-joint mobiliser muscles
  • The use of MTPs to 'up-regulate' inhibited or elongated 1 joint stabiliser muscles to improve their stabiliser function
Learning Outcomes:

This fun and interactive course will help you to use myofascial trigger point therapy in the management of: movement control impairments, clinical regional pain scenarios and complex regional pain syndromes. Clinic ready tools for immediate integration into practice.
