1) Identify, palpate and test the mobility of the the vascular system throughout the body including the chest, throat, abdomen, and extremities.
2) Ask appropriate patient history questions that take into account new, research-based understanding of respiratory-cardio-renal-vascular system function;
3) Demonstrate various treatment strategies such as Fascial Release, Counterstrain-positional release, Neurolymphatic and Neurovascular Techniques, and NeuroDynamic Reintegration© (NDR©) to maximize local function of the respiratory-cardio-renal-vascular system.
4) Perform appropriate Global and Regional provocation tests of the chest, subdiaphragmatic renal / adrenal, respiratory viscera and vascular system..
5) Apply a specific Home Exercise / Self-Treatment Program based on objectively assessed neuromuscular imbalance and somatic dysfunction.
Target audience: Licensed healthcare providers including, but not limited to:
PT, AT, DC, MT, RN, OT, LMT, and ND.
7 contact hours – 14 1-A hours anticipated
Instructors: Neal O'Neal, PT
Class is held 9-6 Saturday.
Fees: $250/student $200 for Zoom, associates of Autumn Mayberry may utilize a discount code found HERE . Course limited to 8 students.
Materials Provided: A binder of the course materials will be provided to each student to follow along and take notes during the lecture and lab portions of the class.
Purpose: The purpose of this class is to provide the clinical practitioner with the knowledge of how recent research has changed current clinical treatment approaches to the respiratory-cardio-renal-vascular system and the role of mobility of the viscera in biomechanical, neurological, and neurohormonal signalling.
Expected outcomes are to develop effective delineation and treatment strategies based upon an integration of new information and the extensive body of knowledge of the anatomy, physiology, and embryology of the body. This class will enhance participant learning through the use of discussion, audio-visual materials, recent research evidence, and extensive lab-based learning.
