Description of Post-Concussive Syndrome
In this live broadcast hybrid learning class, Shannon Goossen teaches what to do for those people who have had post-concussive symptoms. Many times these people have difficulty managing muscle tension and myofascial dysfunction in the muscles of the head and neck. Often these clients report that it feels like they cannot even hold their head up. They also may report a sense of brain fog and difficulty organizing and utilizing the stabilization muscles in the body.
1. demonstrate proficiency in assessing myofascial pain & dysfunction
2. be able to identify myofascial distortion as it occurs post-neck injury.
3. be able to identify postural distortions, stabilizer muscle weaknesses, and mover muscle dysfunction in the “Mover and Stabilizer muscles”
4. learn specific techniques used in applying active/dynamic manual therapy techniques to restore optimal cervical movement and function.
5. understand the characteristics of the post-concussive syndrome and the cervical myofascial component
6. list the key symptoms found with concussion and post-concussion syndrome
7. be able to identify specific myofascial pain pattern maps
After the completion of this course the learner will be able to:
1. demonstrate trigger point massage therapy techniques for the activation & treatment of the “mover and stabilizer” muscles in the neck and shoulders.
2. use information from the course to demonstrate therapeutic techniques to resolve dysfunctional cervical motor patterns and/or fascial distortions quickly
3. apply specific active, dynamic manual therapy techniques to resolve pain and dysfunction in the shoulder and neck.
