MYOFASCIAL INDUCTION FIRST LEVEL: STRUCTURAL TECHNIQUES

The Myofascial Induction ® is a method of evaluation and treatment where three-dimensional movements and sustained pressures are used throughout the systemfascial to eliminate its restrictions.

In recent years, the techniques of Myofascial Induction ® have gained in physiotherapy an unprecedented field; have allowed the expansion of many roots in the profession. The limitations of the myofascial system produce pain and slow down the recovery of function. It is considered that the Myofascial Induction® is the link forgotten in the chain of treatments performed by therapists in charge of restoring function and pain relief.

OVERALL OBJECTIVE

To ensure that the participant throughout the development of the seminars acquires those skills and abilities that allow him to make an appropriate evaluation and
treatment in patients affected by Myofascial Dysfunction Syndrome (SDF).

SPECIFIC OBJECTIVES

  • Analyze the conceptual model of the Myofascial Induction (MIT).
  • Discuss the concept of the SDF.
  • Explain the evaluation process of the SDF.
  • Demonstrate and carry out the evaluation process of the SDF.
  • Introduce the bases of clinical applications of the MIT.
  • Analyze the indications and contraindications of the MIT.
  • Learn and apply the clinical procedures of MIT.

THEORY

  1. Identify the basic elements of the structure, biomechanics and kinematics of the locomotor apparatus of the human body.
  2. Identify the fascial structure of the body.
  3. Describe the molecular structure of the fascia.
  4. Characterize the biomechanical structure of the fascia.
  5. Analyze the pathomechanics of the fascial system.
  6. Differentiate and apply the phases of the evaluation of myofascial syndrome.

PROFESSIONAL COMPETENCES (PRACTICE)

  • Apply the most commonly used specific techniques in the myofascial restrictions of the spine, chest and extremities.
  • Apply the basic techniques of deep myofascial mobilization and induction.
