Delegates have a choice of three practical sessions each day. Don’t worry – each session is repeated on each day so you will be able to attend them all.
Take a visually rich, tactile and movement focused journey with anatomy and biotensegrity expert John Sharkey as he discusses human anatomy, chronic pain, fascia and movement.
Have we had the last word when it comes to our understanding of human anatomy, have we had the only word when it comes to explaining how we move? Clinical Anatomist and Exercise Physiologist John Sharkey will suggest that our current anatomy model is flawed and puts forward his own unique hypothesis – Anatomy for the 21st Century.
In this fast paced, transformative educational workshop mixing theory and movement strategies John Sharkey will approach the treatment of chronic pain issues by providing his unique approach to manual/physical therapy via his internationally acclaimed model “Biotensegrity- Anatomy for the 21st Century”.
Join John as he merges mechanotransduction, fascia as a hydraulic amplifier, integrated anatomy, helical forces and neuromuscular considerations that provide a practical, hierarchical approach to resolving global chronic pain issues. Accurate assessment skills provide the foundation for effective manual therapy and physical activity interventions. If assessments are anatomically wrong then the intervention strategy will also be wrong. Rather than helping to solve a pain issue the poorly informed therapist can unwittingly be adding to the problem or creating a new problem for their client/patient.
Avail of John’s more than thirty years experience in anatomy and manual therapies. Come away from this educational event with a new sense of confidence in your skills and knowledge. Get ready to bring this knowledge and improved soft tissue skills to your clinical practice. Better results for your clients will compound your reputation as a true expert within your community setting you aside from your competitors.
In this workshop you will learn:
- The difference between tensegrity and biotensegrity
- Why linear models are not a reflection of human movement
- Primary, secondary and tertiary axis of human movement and their implications for increasing risk of injury
- Why human tissues should not be stretched
- How to identify the true source of a persons chronic pain issue
- The important role of bone in human movement
- How to restore neuromuscular efficiency to the full body kinetic chains
- To never perform a sit-up again and reduce risk of low back insults
