Trauma, be it physical, emotional or psychic, may be stored only to resurface, sometimes years later, as a pain, an anxiety, a behavior or any number of problems created by the body’s method of compensation. Anatomy of Trauma™© workshops emphasize thinking outside the box and viewing the body as much more than the sum of its parts. The question “What am I really looking at?” is key in assessing each individual and devising the appropriate treatments. The whole person, their history, posture, gait, culture, environment, work, family and beliefs are all important considerations in uncovering the source of pain. Anatomy of Trauma™ teaches a unique approach to solving core issues.
The substance of this course covers all aspects of trauma and injury, how they differ and their effect on the body/mind/spirit continuum. Using systemic evaluation, observation, listening, gait/movement analysis and dynamic anatomy, participants will learn multiple techniques to restore patients‟ homeostasis. When these series of techniques are used in concert, they effect a profound change in the whole body. They are useful in treating back pain, generalized stiffness, numerous sequellae of MVAs, head injuries and correcting postural problems to name a few. It is a “go to” solution when a new approach is required. Individually they are each useful additions to any treatment be it shin splints, runners knee, TMJ problems, breathing problems, back pain, S.I joint pain and more.
