Anatomical Dissection and Clinical Application
This laboratory experience and talk uses human cadaveric dissection. An in-depth dissection of joints and associated structures involved in the Orthopedic Assessment for the Massage Therapist. Muscles, tendons, ligaments, and articular surfaces will be identified and manipulated during dissections on a live video feed.

Cadaver Lab (Co-teacher Joe Muldoon)
This laboratory experience allows participants to see overlaying joint tissues as well as the effects of age on these joints and associated structures. Correlation of anatomy and anatomical changes will be made in the keynote address of the Symposium.

No video recording or photography is allowed during the dissection or laboratory breakout groups.
