Precision Kinematics: 
Passive Movement as Assessment and Treatment

 

AT SOMATHERAPY INSTITUTE in Rancho Mirage, CA  May 6, 2018  9am to 6pm

Precision Kinematics is a bodywork approach utilizing passive movements for both assessment and treatment of the musculoskeletal system. Developed over many years by Precision Neuromuscular Therapy founder Douglas Nelson and PNMT Instructor Jan Kiener.

Clients love the integration of movement into massage sessions; these movements are both playful and yet very powerful. The effect on the nervous system is deeply relaxing, a perfect complement to both relaxation massage and highly specific soft-tissue techniques. For the client, it adds an element of movement exploration that makes the massage more interesting and enjoyable. For the therapist, Precision Kinematics can be used to transition from one massage technique to another, to integrate new range of motion possibilities after treatment, or to clarify where to direct further specific treatment.   Rocking- Thumb on Spinous-smPNMT

Precision Kinematics is organized according to skeletal planes of movement of the body. As each plane is gently and playfully explored, restrictions in movement are revealed. Often, simply exploring the movements can create the desired change. This treatment framework can help to clarify the practitioners thinking about muscle function, which is a wonderful way to more deeply grasp functional anatomy. This thinking process is at the heart of the whole Precision System.

PNMT for the Low Back  May 5, 2018 

 

In the PNMT Low Back seminar, you will learn how to efficiently evaluate and treat people with various types of back pain involving the lumbar area. In order to accomplish this, you will learn to clearly identify the anatomical landmarks necessary for great palpation, identify and address the correct soft tissue structures that affect the stated pain pattern, and review how these soft tissue restrictions are tied to movement and everyday complaints.



This seminar is designed to be a "hands on" experience and the style of therapy relevant to everyday practice; you can utilize the techniques taught in class immediately. At the same time, it will sharpen your anatomy skills and assist you in understanding spinal mechanics. We will address clinical applications, review the functional applications that soft tissue plays in back pain, and address common clinical concerns.

ACCURATE ASSESSMENT: PNMT training is based on tests and techniques designed to verify that the muscle being treated is truly an important player in the client's discomfort. Just because a muscle is tender does not mean it is the cause of their pain. Don't

PRECISE TREATMENT: The heart of our approach is precision. Great treatment on the wrong muscle will not be successful.

Even on the correct muscle, a 5mm positional change or simply changing the direction of your pressure could be the

difference between success and failure. When treatment is not precise, therapists tend to press harder in an attempt to be effective. Our goal is to teach therapists to be more efficient and effective while making the treatment a fabulous experience for the client.

 

STELLAR RESULTS: It is all about results! All the training, all the therapy, all the philosophy does not matter if the client does not get the results desired. The assessment approaches we use become benchmarks for the effectiveness of the work. It will be very clear to you and your client when you are correct in your treatment approach.

 

SPINE AND THORAX
This seminar is designed to be a “hands on” experience so
that you can utilize the techniques immediately. At the same time, PNMT will sharpen your anatomy skills and assist you in understanding spinal mechanics. We will address clinical applications, review the functional applications that soft tissue plays in back pain, andaddress common clinical concerns.

NECK AND HEAD
In this seminar, participants learn how to efficiently evaluate and treat patients with various types of head and neck pain including headaches, whiplash, disc issues, and reduced range of motion. You will learn strategies to determine the most effective treatment protocols to make a massive difference in the way your client feels. Students will also find it a great review of the anatomy and function of the neck musculature. RANCHO MIRAGE, CA


LOWER EXTREMITY
PNMT for the Lower Extremity begins with a thorough assessment of the muscles of the hip, looking closely at muscular issues as well as the effect of hip pathology on joint function. Moving methodically down the leg, we will address conditions such as piriformis syndrome, knee pain, hamstring strains, plantar fascitis, and other common lower extremity pain patterns. The class is filled with practical applications to conditions that are commonly seen in everyday practice. RANCHO MIRAGE, CA
