Break adhesions and improve muscle function with soft tissue manipulation

Clients suffer from tight muscles, pain, joint deterioration and require soft tissue manipulation to restore functionality. In response to repetitive injuries and trauma, your body creates adhesions by creating new tissue, often causing pain and dysfunction. You need these Orthopedic Techniques to get those results and help your clients with soft tissue injuries and pain.

By joining this course, you get free access to the online Effective Tissue Manipulation course required before entering the in-person course.

You will learn the following:

  • Break down or reduce adhesions
  • Lengthen muscles and tendons
  • Restore functionality
  • Manage pain
  • Decompress joints
  • Release tight muscles
