Details

This approach integrates Myofascial Trigger Point & Proprioceptive concepts in a systematic, comprehensive manner.

The scientific background and methods taught utilize an Evidence-Based Model with solid research and techniques that have been tried successfully for years and incorporates the 47 years cumulative clinical experience of Dr. Dimitrios Kostopoulos & Konstantine Rizopoulos, authors of best-seller text The Manual of Trigger Point & Myofascial Therapy. The course contains extensive lab sessions of all muscle systems discussed at the course and also includes the Spray & Stretch Technique.

“At Hands-On Seminars we believe that any single manual therapy approach in isolation, and any single school of thought does not provide a cure for all patients’ problems. We believe that successful clinical outcomes are the result of a comprehensive, eclectic manual therapy approach. You as a therapist, need to master a number of manual therapy approaches so that you can select the proper combination for your specific patient. With Hands-On Seminars MCMT® program you get just that! We have selected for you – from a variety of physical therapy approaches – the most effective and efficient, evidence-based manual therapy techniques that when combined with proper assessments can lead to successful treatment outcomes. By the end of the program, you will have a toolbox full of manual therapy approaches that you can use to treat your patients.”

– Dr. Dimitrios Kostopoulos & Dr. Konstantine Rizopoulos, Founders of Hands-On Seminars
