SHOULDER ARM AND HAND COURSE (16 CE)

Help your clients get relief from shoulder, arm & hand problems. Discover 65 techniques for addressing complicated pain problems in the shoulder, arm, and hand. You’ll learn to address myoskeletal strain and compensation patterns with an integration of sports therapy, structural integration and pain management techniques. 

An Advanced Course for MMT Certification: The Shoulder Arm and Hand MAT course is part of the Advanced MAT Program and will take you one step closer to Master Myoskeletal Therapist (MMT) certification. It’s a perfect addition to your skill set for anyone working in sports medicine, massage therapy, structural integration, physical therapy or personal training. 

Course Description:

The shoulder girdle is one of the more structurally complicated areas of the body, with several nerves running through the articulation of uniquely-shaped bones. The range of motion the body is capable of accomplishing from the shoulder is impressive. The range of injuries, nerve impingements, and chronic muscle spasms that can arise is daunting.

Using technique demonstrations, full-color illustrations, and academic explanation, the Shoulder, Arm & Hand course covers everything you need to know to begin addressing pain in the shoulder, as well as related issues in the arms and hands. 

In this course you will learn to:

  • Immediately incorporate 65 unique techniques into your table treatments, including innovative deep tissue, nerve mobilization, joint stretching and graded exposure techniques
  • Advance your skills in treating tendinopathies, nerve entrapments, and muscle guarding
  • Learn to restore motion to painful shoulders, elbows, hands and wrists
  • Assist healing from Tennis Elbow, Golfer’s Elbow and Carpal Tunnel syndromes
  • Help clients avoid surgery and long-term use of pain medications

Included in the home study course are three DVDs packed with technique demonstrations and educational graphics and a full-color reference manual for your treatment room. Rich in detail and explanation, these resources teach you how to help rid your clients of painful conditions that often lead to invasive treatments.

BONUS! Purchase the Home Study and we’ll give you access to the eCourse for free! (valued at $249). You receive the entire contents of the program online where you can access through any device: computer, laptop, tablet or phone. You’re no longer tied to your DVD player and can enjoy the course wherever you have Internet access.
