An Intensive Training On Myofascial Trigger Point and Proprioceptive Training
Over 20,000 Clinicians have taken this course in several countries around the world. This is a training seminar with immediate clinical applications. Participants learn a comprehensive therapeutic approach for the evaluation and treatment of Myofascial Pain and Musculoskeletal Dysfunction. Orthopedic, Neurologic and Pain conditions can effectively be treated with this method.
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.

Suggested CEUs: 10 Online & 16 Live = 26 CEUs (dependent on state approval)
“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
