Keynote: Frequently Missed Nerve Entrapments
Most of us are familiar with common nerve entrapment conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome or thoracic outlet syndrome. However, there are numerous areas that are not as common where nerve entrapments may be a key factor in our client’s complaints. In this presentation we will explore a number of regions where nerve entrapment problems may be a primary concern, but rarely get discussed. We will also explore suggestions for appropriate massage treatment strategies in addressing these issues.
Creative Strategies for Remote Care
Covid-19 has limited what many of us can do with the treatment room yet many clients still want to stay connected with us for their health and necessary care. In this session Whitney will focus on a number of creative treatment strategies such as active engagement techniques and resistance stretching that are highly effective in addressing many client complaints. While these techniques are most effective when applied to your client in the treatment room, they can also be adapted to remote sessions if you are attempting to work with your clients of remote connections outside your office.
