Muscle Energy Techniques for AthletesAttend this lecture and you will learn how to identify specific soft tissue dysfunction and weakness within the musculo-skeletal system specifically for athletes. Once this has been learnt you will then be taught how to harness powerful Muscle Energy Techniques to restore function to your clients. All the techniques demonstrated are taken directly from the recently published book by John Gibbons called 'Muscle Energy Techniques: a practical guide for physical therapists'.
Putting Maximus Back into your GluteusThe question we, as therapists, should ask ourselves is this... When patients present with pain, is it purely a 'Symptom' or is it the 'Cause'? Can and how does weakness in the Gluteus Maximus cause pain and dysfunction somewhere else in the body e.g. the Cervical Spine or the Lumbar spine or even the Knee? Find out today during this lecture why this weakness phenomenon of the Gluteus can stimulate an overcompensatory pattern of dysfunction through the myo-fascial slings?
