Address Pain in the Upper Extremities with MAT

Watch the short video below to discover how you can become an even more effective therapist by learning innovative treatment approaches to upper extremity pain and dysfunction…

Help your clients get relief from shoulder, arm & hand problems…

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 Master MAT Certification course covers everything you need to know to begin addressing pain in the shoulder, as well as related issues in the arms and hands. You’ll learn to address myoskeletal strain and compensation patterns with an integration of sports therapy, structural integration and pain management techniques.

  • 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
  • Earn 16 CE hours for State and National Licensure

The Shoulder, Arm & Hand Master MAT course is part of the Master MAT Certification requirements. With the knowledge of this course, you’ll help rid your clients of painful conditions that often lead to invasive treatments.
