About The Event
Massage therapists work with soft tissue injuries in a way that few other practitioners do. That's why athletes and active individuals experiencing chronic conditions of the lower extremity seek out their massage therapists to help them recover. Sports massage techniques are widely used to address musculoskeletal complaints of the lower extremity and are a valuable adjunct to the repertoire of any massage therapist interested in treating injuries. This 8 hour seminar focuses on these chronic injuries that respond well to clinically-oriented sports massage: Chronic ankle sprain, achilles tendinopathy, fibularis tendinopathy, hamstrings strain and tendinopathy, adductor strain and jumper's knee.
The hands-on portion of this seminar (80% of the class) includes a range of applications, including compressive effleurage and petrissage, broad cross-fiber work, longitudinal stripping, pin and stretch techniques, isolytic contractions, deep transverse friction, and facilitated stretching. The information and treatment protocols presented in this live seminar are adapted from Bob's new book, Sports Massage for Injury Care released in 2019 by his long-time publisher, Human Kinetics.
Please bring sheets, notebook and lubricants to class. Dress appropriately to receive lower extremity massage work. Massage table and bolsters will be provided by the school.
