Neuro-Release Treatment: Using the 720 Integrative Approach - Cleveland (Solon), OH

  • Board Restrictions note: Co-sponsored courses may not be eligible for CE in Tennessee; Credit calculations may vary for New Mexico approval
  • Event date: 8/1/2020 - 8/2/2020 Export event

    Event Location: IDN Neuro-Release Technique: Using the 720 Integrative Approach – Cleveland (Solon), OH

    The Neuro-Release Treatment: Using the 720 Integrative Approach is an educational training course designed to provide our students with a deeper understanding of how to improve movement and human performance through manual therapy targeting the neuro-inflammatory system with the use of a local, segmental, and systemic treatment approach.  We will explore the therapeutic effects of Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Massage (IASTM), Percussion/Vibration Massage, and Cupping on musculoskeletal, neuropathic, and radiculopathic pain syndromes. We will discuss the negative effects that peripheral nerve inflammation has on muscle function and how IASTM, Percussion/Vibration Massage, and Cupping can assist in maximizing human (athletic) performance.   The examination and management of peripheral nerve inflammation/sensitization, neuromuscular dysfunction and biomechanical imbalance of the musculoskeletal system will be presented. Integration of Manual Therapy and other treatment options will be included that will complement the efficacy of treatment.  A considerable amount of lab time is focused on assuring safe and effective advanced manual therapy skills with an emphasis on clinical decision-making.      Pre-requisite: None

    Learning Objectives:

    1. Independently integrate IASTM, Percussion/Vibration Massage, and Cupping into a treatment plan for a patient with a given neuromuscular condition based on three physiological mechanisms.
    2. Independently evaluate peripheral nerve (soft tissue) dysfunctions relating to a patient with a given musculoskeletal condition and pain.
    3. Develop a strategy for the prevention and management of adverse responses to IASTM, Percussion/Vibration Massage, and Cupping for a patient with acute, sub-acute or chronic musculoskeletal pain. 
    4. Independently choose the correct neuro-trigger point treatment sites for safe application of cupping and IASTM for patients with acute, sub-acute or chronic musculoskeletal pain.
    5. Independently identify a minimum of three peripheral neuro-trigger points for a given case study. 
    6. Correctly defend the 720o Integrative approach for treatment of musculoskeletal pain based on the unique neurology and physiology of neuro-trigger points.
    7. By the end of the course, the participant will be able to correctly integrate the clinical, legislative, policy/procedure, and billing requirements for IASTM, Percussion/Vibration Massage, and Cupping for treating patients with musculoskeletal pain in a physical therapy practice.


    Course Content:

    Neuro-Release Treatment: Using the 7200 Integrative Approach course will discuss;

    • Integration of IASTM, Percussion/Vibration Massage, and Cupping into physical and manual therapy treatment.
    • Advanced manual therapy techniques for optimizing human performance
    • Clinical safety issues for administering IASTM, Percussion/Vibration Massage, and Cupping.
    • Understanding of the anatomy and physiology of soft tissue healing timeframe and manual therapy technique for tissue remodeling.
    • Clinical techniques for examination and management of peripheral nerve inflammation and neuromuscular dysfunction.
    • Assessment of biomechanical imbalance of musculoskeletal system and manual therapy techniques for rebalancing biomechanics.  
    • Pre and post-symptom treatment in athletic performance.
    • How peripheral nervous system inflammation influences musculoskeletal dysfunction and how to manage it with Manual Therapy  
    • Review of evidence-based research data.

    The Integrative Dry Needling (IDN) training program will develop the knowledge and clinical skills required to effectively diagnose and treat painful neuromuscular conditions. IDN courses teach you to treat the body systemically; we do not divide the body into upper and lower halves requiring you to take 2 courses before you get the whole picture. Our system is built on the foundation of Neurological Dry Needling that provides a logical and systematic process for addressing pain and dysfunction. As a result, course participants develop an adaptable clinical procedure allowing immediate integration of dry needling into clinical practice.
