Lower Quarter PRT
In this session, lower quarter PRT techniques and clinical approaches to specific pathological conditions are addressed, such as plantar fasciitis, iliotibial band friction syndrome and others. Course attendees also receive a comprehensive overview of surface anatomy coupled with one-to-one instruction on how to appropriately palpate tender points and trigger points to enable the treatment of them with positional release therapy as well as instruction on how to perform a myofascial scanning evaluation. Course attendees also receive basic instruction on lower extremity biomechanical influences that can serve as myofascial restriction triggers. Total CEUs for this course are 6.0 EBP (Evidence-Based Practice) CEUs and 4.5 CEUs for a total of 10.5. 15.0 CEUs are offered for the LQ and Gait Analysis Course, 6.0 of which are EBP (Evidence Based Practice) CEUs.

7/21/18 - 7/22/18 • Tulsa, OK
Saturday - July 21st (at 8 am - 4 pm) and Sunday - July 22nd (at 8 am-12 pm)
- Learn a gentle approach to releasing trigger points causing painful conditions seen in the lower extremity with PRT-i®. Positional Release Therapy (PRT) is easy on the clinician, time saving, and comfortable for the patients/clients.
- We'll address problematic conditions such as plantar fasciitis, iliotibial band friction syndrome, patellar tendinitis, and many others.
- We'll cover topics such as neuroscience, pain theories, and biomechanics to better understand trigger points and the application of PRT.
- Learn advanced palpation techniques, advanced biomechanical assessments, and myofascial scanning evaluations to increase your efficiency and precision with your evaluation and treatment.
- Finally, learn how to integrate PRT into your practice and generate a comprehensive plan of care.
