Myofascial Masterclass with Mark Comerford

29th January 2018

Join Mark Comerford for 2 days exploring the myofascial system with a focus on

pain, function, synergies and trigger points.

Here's why!

  • Sensitised or ‘active’ myofascial trigger points have a twofold effect on chronic and recurrent pain. Firstly, they directly produce local and referred pain that responds well to manual treatment and exercise therapy. Secondly, and indirectly related to the change in recruitment synergies between one joint stabiliser muscles and multi joint mobiliser muscles that in turn are strongly linked to the maintenance of recurrent musculoskeletal pain.

  •  Managing these sensitised myofascial trigger points can relieve their direct contribution to musculoskeletal pain presentations and can also significantly improve the ability to recover pain related changes in recruitment synergies with movement and exercise therapy

  •  This course teaches the therapist to identify which myofascial trigger point are contributing to a patient’s movement and pain and impairments and to effectively manage these points

    A unique feature of this myofascial trigger point program in the subclassification of myofascial trigger points based on recruitment synergies and then following up the treatment of the myofascial trigger point active movement recovery exercise to prolong the effect of treatment and to recover the recruitment changes that are related to recurrent pain neurophysiology.
    course details here

80% of people with chronic or recurrent musculoskeletal pain have a significant myofascial trigger point contribution to the pain experience. The myofascial trigger point contribution is especially significant in people whose pain is linked to static or sustained postures and repetitive movements.
