A Rehab Professionals Guide to Foam Rolling

Course: #4300Level: Intermediate3 Hours 2032 Reviews
Recorded Webinar

This course will connect the anatomy and physiology of muscle contraction with myofascia and trigger points that are responsible for the pain mechanisms. It is important to understand the effect of a dysfunctional myofascial chain. We will discuss evidence based research that will support the use of foam rolling, types of different rollers, functions, benefits, role in improving muscle length and hence improved mobility. The knowledge of trigger points in major muscle groups and techniques to foam roll will be addressed, and add another tool in your toolbox for effective rehabilitation. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and athletic training and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA and AT.
