FMT Vibration Specialist course amalgamates manual therapy and vibration science to create simple and effective non-opioid, neuro musculoskeletal (NMSK) treatment and selfcare programs for the manual and movement therapist as well as the athlete. NMSK injuries are one of the leading causes of disability in the United States.
Discover why using vibration-based therapies are effective interventions for pain management, improving mobility and movement dynamics. A holistic (whole person) approach to movement and functional rehabilitation will be presented to aid in identifying key areas of compromise within the NMSK system. This course is an evidence-informed rehabilitation program that redefines our understanding of the effects of vibration in conjunction with traditional manual therapies (myofascial cupping, local/targeted massage) on pain mitigation, injury recovery/prevention and movementThe primary goal of this course is to help PT’s, OT’s, DC’s, ATC’s, LMT’s, other movement therapists and athletes identify and address common NMSK injuries with an innovative functional reappraisal process that includes an external and internal remapping process to help a patient/client reengage in meaningful movement with more confidence and less pain.
This course is intended for health and wellness professionals with all levels of experience of rehabilitation programming and taping. The cost of this course includes a vibration massager kit, vibration cup set, and a roll of kinesiology tape. All supplies needed for the course are provided.
2. Discuss and implement a somatic reappraisal process to identify and address neuropsychosocial symptoms associated with the NMSK dysfunction.
3. Discuss and experience the neuro-psycho-physiological effects of different frequencies of vibration
4.Demonstrate functional use of vibration tools (compressive and decompressive) and understand their role and use for the applications of rehabilitation, edema management, injury recovery, posture and dynamic movement management5. Demonstrate and discuss the new understanding of manipulating the ‘neuromyofascial’ system.
6. Demonstrate and discuss the use of vibration massager and vibrating cups with a psycho-social approach to care.
7. A systematic approach to treatment of common NMSK conditions with a process that includes scanning, connecting, and rippling (following fascial chains).
8. Integrating multiple breathing patterns to help facilitate positive NMSK outcomes.
9. Introduce and discuss how therapists can guide patients/clients in exploring the interoceptive aspects of the pain experience.
