For manual therapists who work beyond the realm of basic relaxation massage and focus more on helping clients who are in pain, Erik Dalton’s Posture.Pain.Performance home-study continuing education program can be considered essential training. After all, the ability to recognize how a client’s postural patterns may be contributing to his or her pain is a highly valuable skill for massage therapists, bodyworkers, athletic trainers and other manual therapists to possess.Equipped with knowledge of Vladimir Janda’s legendary “Upper & Lower Crossed Syndrome” patterns, along with the hands-on skills of Myoskeletal Alignment Techniques (MAT), the manual therapists who complete this course will earn the credential of Certified Myoskeletal Therapist: Posture.Pain.Performance Specialist. In addition to this prestigious certification, the home-study course also delivers 20 continuing education units.

With the MAT skills practitioners will learn through this course, it is not only possible to begin reversing and alleviating chronic pain, but also to manually release dysfunctional strain patterns before they become the kind of long-term pain that truly disrupts a person’s overall quality of life. It is not hard to imagine why a bodyworker who can provide such results would have a thriving practice. In the world of pain management, the people who can actually give clients lasting relief from their pain tend to be paid quite well, which usually means a significant return on one’s investment in MAT continuing education. With the deep knowledge and hands-on skills necessary to effect lasting, non-invasive pain relief, you will be ready to take your clients’ health — and your own career — to new heights.

Posture.Pain.Performance is Packed with Need-To-Know Skills

With an emphasis on the neck and low back — two regions of the body frequently plagued by pain — Posture.Pain.Performance imparts a long list of diverse skills that manual therapists can take straight to the table. The training takes place by watching three top-notch DVDs, which show Dalton demonstrating each MAT method with clear and simple step-by- step instructions. The second layer of education comes from reading the most recent edition of Dalton’s classic MAT textbook, “Posture – Pain – Performance.” This home-study package comes with all three DVDs and the textbook, so students can rest assured they will be receiving comprehensive MAT training.

Posture.Pain.Performance is packed with effective deep tissue, joint stretching and muscle energy techniques that can be performed in the session room for immediate positive results among clients. It all starts with the assessment and stretching routines practitioners will learn in the first DVD. Based on Janda’s simplified assessment formula, and coupled with knowledge from MAT, this five-minute structural assessment allows bodyworkers to evaluate important factors, such as muscle firing order and hypertonicity. With the information pulled from the assessment process, manual therapists can quickly identify and correct common causes of pain in the low back and neck. In fact, the third DVD of this set features a whopping 25 neck routines, which include tendon, ligament, joint capsule and thoracic rib techniques for outstanding results.
