Practical MovementTM – Postural Assessment and Treatment Protocols
25 CE hours The Postural Assessment and Treatment Protocols seminar teaches the basic skills of postural assessment and what to do once an evaluation is completed. Case studies are included and experienced students are invited to bring their own case studies for review. Students develop a plan or "blueprint" that is used to apply the movements learned in other Practical Movement seminars.
This seminar may be taken by any practitioner interested in the exploration of posture and its effect on the body. The principles learned in this seminar stand alone and can be applied to any therapeutic soft tissue work.
Overview of Practical Movement and how postural assessment takes Practical Movement to the next level.
Hands-on postural assessment skills and in-depth chart analysis.
Protocols for developing a muscular treatment plan based on an assessment including:

Lifts and orthotics – making the proper referrals for each.
How best to incorporate this material into your existing practice.
The most efficient way to handle the assessment if you don't have time to do a full assessment.
