Health professionals involved in musculoskeletal rehabilitation and pain management, e.g., Physician (MBBS+),Osteopath, Chiropractor, Ayurvedic Physician, Physiotherapist, Occupational Therapist and Yoga Therapist. The participant must have a refined knowledge of the neuromuscular system as well as an extremely well developed palpatory ability (sense of touch required to feel the trigger points).
This is a soft tissue technique that focuses on myofascial trigger points, developed by Dr. Raymond Nimmo of Granbury, Texas,USA. His scientific explanation of the principles involved in the development of myofascial pain syndromes, which resulted in spinal sub luxations, brought the chiropractic community to understand how normal reflex arcs transition into patho-physiological reflex arcs. Dr. Nimmo developed a precise system of analysis and techniques to break those vicious cycles. Students of this technique will learn effective procedures to unravel a patient’s pain pattern and speed them back to homeostasis. Techniques will be taught to treat low back and pelvic pain, whiplash neck and shoulder syndromes and TMJ problems.
