You’ll learn how to identify specific soft tissue dysfunction and weakness within the musculo-skeletal system, and to harness powerful Muscle Energy Techniques to restore function to your patients.
Author and Lecturer John Gibbons brings years of expertise and this will be demonstrated during this course. He will teach you the theory of MET and, once that has been understood, he takes you on a muscle energy technique ‘journey’. After demonstrating functional assessment testing for the muscles of ‘posture’ that can become chronically tight and dysfunctional, he shows how to apply a specific MET to correct these dysfunctional muscles to restore normality.
On completion of the course you will have the knowledge and practical experience necessary to identify, assess and treat specific dysfunction within the musculo-skeletal framework and perform a variety of Muscle Energy Techniques that will help restore function.
