This course provides advanced rehabilitative theory and technical skills to work with clients experiencing myofascial pain symptoms of the lower body. Techniques continue to focus on Trigger Point Therapy and Cross Fiber Friction, with emphasis on refining the treatment protocol and palpation skills for assessment of changes within the soft tissue. In addition to laboratory sessions, learners engage in practice massage sessions outside of scheduled class hours. The student will demonstrate clinical reasoning skills through SOAP documentation and creation of a treatment plan based on anatomy, physiology and the presenting client condition.
