In this course, Muscular Reactivation Technique, you will learn to refer to a divergent set of techniques to reset proprioceptors of the muscle. In the most general sense, this approach simply encompasses the treatment of musculoskeletal disorders, ROM, and muscle tension which are defined as an injury to or dysfunction of locomotor tissues of the musculoskeletal system. Muscular Reactivation Technique has a defined set of components, such as contraction and lack of ROM being able to instant release from those components. Great asset for any massage therapist to execute and see results in only a few minutes.
1. Students will list The receptors that respond to pressure, velocity, vibration, stretch, and other forces. When receptors detect a change, a signal is sent to the spinal cord and then relayed to the brain.
2. With MRT, the student briefly stimulates the proprioceptors embedded in the selected muscle and tendons by asking for a position to be held or for a movement in a particular direction.
3. The student will be able to use a specific technique on a muscle in such a way as to cause receptors to send a special message to the spinal cord.
4. The student will be able to send using a specific technique, that new message goes through the spinal integrating center which will reset the nervous system so the muscle is optimized neurologically. With the MRT, the muscular pain and tightness disappear within seconds.
5. Explain the approach of the Muscular Reactivation Technique to address muscular conditions. 6. Describe the foundation of neural injuries and patterns of pain.
7. Students will be able to discuss assessment and effective treatment choices.
8. Instruct on the benefits of the Muscular Reactivation Technique.
9. Student will be able to identify the contraindication of the Muscular Reactivation Technique.
10. Explain the importance of assessment in the treatment of soft tissue disorders.
11. Students will be able to describe three or more foundational treatment techniques.
12. Students will be able to apply all the techniques within the scope of practice by identifying the pathologies.
13. Students will introduce deep gliding, static compression, compression broadening, sweeping cross-fiber techniques, deep longitudinal stripping, stretching, and deep friction.
14. Students will be able to discuss clinical reasoning and case study.
15. Students will identify that in your body, there are specialized nerve bundles called mechanoreceptors.
16. Students will be able to apply the MRT by using the ROM goniometric tool.
Commonly, we see the following conditions improve greatly or disappear completely:
• Neck and back pain
• Muscle spasms
• Headaches, esp. tension type
• TMJ issues
• Tennis and golf elbow
• Carpal tunnel syndrome
• Rotator cuff pain
• Pain from unknown causes
• Persistent pain after trauma
• Hip pain
