Solving Today’s Pain & Injury Puzzle

The 9th Annual Oklahoma City Workshop:
Erik Dalton’s only USA workshop in 2022!

Upgrade your Skills & Party on the Riverwalk. Join Erik and the Dalton Gang for the event of the year. We will be hosting this fun-filled – affordable 24 CE – 70% hands-on chronic pain seminar at Oklahoma City’s brand-new state-of-the-art Convention Center!

In this 70% hands-on workshop Erik will explain the importance of developing great table-side skills to better communicate with your client. He will also discuss the fine art of history-taking, physical assessment and clinical reasoning when dealing with clients that are moving poorly or who are in pain. 

This Myoskeletal Technique workshop will address connective tissue strain patterns, nerve entrapment syndromes and joint mobility issues in these structures:

  • Neck, head, & jaw 
  • Thoracic Outlet
  • Ankles, hips, knees & feet
  • Hamstrings, quads & psoas
  • Gluteals & hip external rotators
  • Sciatic, femoral & obturator nerves
  • Multifidus, QL, erector spinae & deep spinal groove muscles
  • Diaphragm, scalenes & other muscles of respiration
  • Ribs & t-spine
  • Rotator Cuff

You’ll also learn new brain-based functional assessments and hormone activating techniques. Special video animation, anatomy dissection and dozens of head-to-toe hands-on techniques stimulate the visual learner while relaxed practice sessions with highly skilled MAT teaching assistants delight kinesthetically attuned therapists. You will learn the importance of technique development, and how to better explain pain, attract clients & increase revenue. 

Upgrade your skill set and boost your referrals with Erik Dalton’s extremely popular ‘hands-on’ pain-rehab techniques. Learn WHY they work, and HOW to change the brain’s mind about your client’s pain…the MAT way!

24 CE credits. Only $590!
