Synergists: Using Functional Biomechanics to Obtain Optimal Therapeutic Results

Muscles and other soft tissue that act in the same direction and function similarly are known as synergists. In this presentation we’ll look at the biomechanics of the spine and extremities. You’ll discover the importance of recognizing and treating possible synergist dysfunction in order to provide your clients with effective and long-lasting results. In particular, we’ll examine the Functional Range Release Techniques™ soft tissue management system in the assessment and treatment of synergist dysfunction. You’ll see a demonstration of Functional Range Release Techniques™, including specific examples that demonstrate how you can look beyond the symptoms and treat in a more functional, synergistic, and holistic manner.
