Biomechanic certification, is the practice of evaluating motions such as walking,running or even swinging a golf club! This evaluation aids in revealing the biomechanical faults that an individual may have and aid in targeting the causation,restrictions or abberent motions that may be the causing the pain.
Long Tract Nerve Entrapment techniques are designed to "release" entrapped nerves along their course from the spine to the finger tips in the case of upper extremity conditions and from the spine to the toes in lower extremity conditions. There are 4 to 6 possible entrapment sites of the upper extremity nerves, which include the Median, the Radial and the Ulnar nerves. Upper extremity conditions effectively treated with this technique include Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, which involves the Median nerve as well as Ulnar and Radial nerve entrapments. Patients receiving this treatment have been able to avoid costly, painful and in some cases failed surgeries.The lower extremity nerves include the Sciatic, Femoral and Tibial nerves. Many times Sciatic pain is due entrapment along the course of it's path instead of a disc bulge or herniation.
Active Palpation Techniques (APT) is a differential palpation course designed to isolate the proper structure involved in a joint or muscle group and aid in determining the source of the problem. In the lower leg for instance these techniques would aid in determining whether the gastrocnemius, soleus or posterior tibialis muscles are the primary muscles involved.
Selective Functional Movement Assessment (SFMA) is an evaluation based on regional interdependence. Basically, this means the entire movement system of the body is evaluated through a series of 7 top tier movements and since the whole body is interdependent, an evaluation might reveal that a patients foot pain may be due to a hip problem of vice versa!
