Altered (increased or decreased) range of motion at any joint may impact tissues both immediately adjacent and distant from the joint. Physical and physiological functions adapt, leading to compensations that may have positive or negative consequences for quality of life. Informed by important concepts from pain science, restoration of optimal range of motion considers the neurology of pain and psychosocial factors related to the client’s perceptions and lived experiences. Biological factors involving age, tissue injury, pathology, morphology, etc. are also considered and assessed.
.
Participants will learn a pragmatic approach to assessment that considers the biopsychosocial nature of pain and how altered ROM impacts both biomechanical functions and quality of life. Clinical reasoning first considers whether restoration of ROM is possible or even desirable, and treatment may include both manual and movement methods. Both hypo- and hypermobility will be discussed, along with appropriate cautions regarding assessments and interventions.
.
Manual and movement methods are presented in a concept-oriented, principle-based manner that can be immediately applied in practice without rote memorization of techniques and protocols. Participants will learn to consider the safe applications of post-isometric relaxation, reciprocal inhibition, dermoneuromodulation, mobilizations, novel movement, strengthening, and other concepts …and may practice them in techniques from Orthopedic Massage, Strain Counterstrain, Myofascial Release, Active Isolated Stretching, PNF stretching, Muscle Energy Technique, CRAC stretching, static stretching, dynamic stretching, Circular Strength Training, corrective exercise, yoga, tai chi, etc. Participants will see how diverse approaches can be complementary and may be integrated into a session.
