Course summary:

Assessment and Rehabilitation of Musculoskeletal Disorders is a course designed for Acupuncture practitioners who frequently treat patients for MSK, pain, injury, motor inhibition, and more. Combining motor points, soft tissue work, and rehabilitation, this recording reviews all the important pillars necessary to develop more complete treatments, and helps the practitioner understand why combining techniques is ideal for proper healing. The result is a more complete treatment that will yield the best results for MSK disorders.

Viewers will learn to analyze human movement and identify dysfunctional motor patterns, including learning how they play an important role in pinpointing the underlying cause of symptoms. They will also learn how to effectively and efficiently utilize rehabilitation protocols for lower back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, hip pain, and more.

It is recommended viewers have taken a live EXSTORE seminar or the on-line course, and have used EXSTORE and associated skills.

In addition to learning rehabilitation exercises, Dr. Furman will also discusses research in rehabilitation and how to fit rehabilitation into the practitioner’s practice, including how to develop a treatment plan using what was learned in the seminar.
