Soft Tissue and Pain Management Course – London

10th March 2018 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

Soft Tissue management is a core component of physical rehabilitation. We have developed tools and treatment methods to give the best outcomes whilst reducing strain on the therapist:
1. Mechanotransduction
2. Decongestion
3. Biostimulation
4. Movement integration

The purpose of this course is to introduce 4 innovative technology-based techniques currently being used to manage soft tissue injuries to augment traditional manual and exercise-based therapy. Myofascial Acoustic Compression Therapy, instrument assisted soft tissue mobilisation (IASTM), mechanically assisted myofascial release and decongestive techniques, and photobiostimulation with Class IV, 940nm diode-laser will be introduced to accentuate the clinician’s manual techniques.


Course Outline

The session will begin with an introductory lecture on common soft tissue injuries and presenting evidence supporting the application of each technology. This will be followed by hands-on workshop of the treatment techniques with time for participant practice.

– Discuss 4 phases of tissue healing & repair
