Orthopedic Acupuncture & Myofascial Soft Tissue Techniques for Sports Injuries & Athletes 15-Hour Recorded Seminar

Orthopedic Acupuncture & Myofascial Soft Tissue Techniques for Sports Injuries & Athletes 15-Hour Recorded Seminar



Everything you need to treat common sports injuries & athletic performance – made straightforward and easy to implement.

This 15-hour 47 minute recorded seminar will teach you how to assess and treat athletes and the most common sports injuries we see in the clinic. Actual clinical skills of physical assessment, functional tests, electro-acupuncture, taping, and extensive soft tissue manual therapies will all be covered. Through lectures and patient demos, participants will learn all aspects of assessing and treating athletes, from core concepts to practical application in the clinic. Following this seminar, you will be able to confidently apply what they learn to treat a variety of sports injuries and increase performance for athletes of all different backgrounds.

Instructors Anthony Lombardi, DC and Lev Furman, DC, show you the same skills they use in their clinics every day to treat athletes. 

The key to learning how to treat sports injuries is to understand the mechanics and types of injuries common to different sports. This way what you learn will have application across many different types of athletes. For example, when you learn to treat muscle strains of the hamstring, the same treatment principles apply for any muscle strain.

The same goes for injuries of the shoulder, knee, ankle, elbow, and wrist. For example, throwing-related injuries apply to many different sports, so learning how to assess and treat these injuries has cross-applications. Think less about sports specific and more about broad application. This will allow you to apply what you learn to many different types of patients.

*Important to note, what you learn in this seminar can also be transferred to your general, non-athlete patient population; The skills you’ll learn have cross-applicability for other types of Orthopedic and musculoskeletal (MSK) conditions.

Prerequisite: It is recommended that you know the EXSTORE™ Orthopedic System prior to watching this recorded seminar. You can learn more about the EXSTORE™ system HERE.
