Integrated Neuromuscular Re-Education from Theresa A. Schmidt
NEUROPHYSIOLOGICAL BASIS OF MUSCLE TONE, TENSION AND SPASM
- Muscle spindle
- GTO reflexes
- Normal/abnormal tension patterns
JONES’ THEORY OF STRAIN/COUNTERSTRAIN AND POSITIONAL RELEASE
SCANNING ASSESSMENT FOR TENDER TRIGGER POINTS
- Palpable nodules, taut bands, referred pain
- Diagnostic indicators of biomechanical dysfunction
POSITIONAL RELEASE TECHNIQUE DEMONSTRATION AND LAB
- Position of comfort, pain scale and palpation
THEORETICAL BASIS OF MUSCLE ENERGY THERAPY/PROPRIOCEPTIVE NEUROMUSCULAR FACILITATION
MUSCLE ENERGY THERAPY FOR THE EXTREMITIES: DEMONSTRATION AND LAB
- Extremities demonstration
- Correction of somatic dysfunction
MUSCLE ENERGY THERAPY FOR THE SPINE AND PELVIS: DEMONSTRATION AND LAB
- Contraction types, multi-angle stretches
- Facilitation techniques
- Spine and pelvis demonstration
INTEGRATION OF TECHNIQUES INTO A TREATMENT PROGRAM
- Clinical problem solving with discussion
Silence the Pain! Restore Mobility and Strength!
Integrated Neuromuscular Re-Education is an introductory hands-on approach to correction of somatic dysfunction using muscle energy/PNF and counterstrain/positional release.
The goals of INMR are to restore normal soft tissue tone and elasticity, relieve pain, improve strength and optimize performance. Identification and treatment of abnormal neuromuscular tension, painful trigger points, motion restriction and strength deficit is the focus of this recording. INMR approach is a synthesis of active and passive approaches to facilitate positive changes in the structure and function of the myofascial and neuromuscular systems.
Techniques may be immediately applied in a variety of clinical situations. A review of the current evidence-based literature will illustrate the efficacy of these interventions. This recording includes lecture, discussion and emphasis on hands-on lab practice. A must-take course for manual therapists!
