Advanced Dynamic Anatomy: Bridging the Gap Between Anatomy and Treatment

Most PT school programs only teach the actions of muscles. This course covers each muscle’s function and how to use anatomy to quickly find the driver of your patients’ dysfunction. You’ll learn how to palpate muscles to fix hypertonicity, weakness and inhibition so those dysfunctions don’t return, as well as evidence-based treatment for tendinosis and the functional retraining of muscles. All these techniques will enable you to direct your patients to a speedy and more successful recovery.

 

As with all our manual therapy courses, this course is at least 75% hands-on lab, and will give you skills you can use immediately upon returning to the clinic! Participants should have a basic knowledge of anatomy as this is an applied anatomy course.

Course Instructor

Greg Kopp

PT, MPT, OCS, CIMT

Greg graduated with his MPT from Oakland University in 1995. He has guest lectured at Oakland University on ACL/PCL surgeries and rehab, and served as a teaching assistant at Oakland for examination procedures and therapeutic exercise. Greg is currently appointed as a clinical instructor for Oakland University. His treatment approach is eclectic, utilizing Kaltenborn and Paris manual techniques, and muscle energy techniques learned at Great Lakes Seminars. He has used this approach since 1995 working in outpatient orthopedic settings with a very diverse patient population, including sports medicine. Greg’s treatment philosophy is to treat the driver of the patient’s condition/pathology, and to teach the patient to manage their own condition. He also has an extensive background in weight training and exercise.
