Overview

This is a 12-hour course that will contain a laboratory discussion section and a hands-on ART Active Release Techniques practice section. Prosected cadavers will be demonstrated to the participants. Focus of the anatomy portion will be on peripheral nervous system pathway and relationships to surrounding structures. The hands-on ART practice section will allow participants to apply what was discussed in the anatomy section to the treatment of nerve entrapment syndromes.

Spaces in each course are limited.

There will NOT be a practical exam administered.

12 general CE credits
