Until now, choices were limited if you wanted to learn how to treat with medical floss.
You had to read a book or attend an expensive class that locked you into treating patients with specific, complex protocols.
The FMT RockFloss introduces the use of compression floss bands to help reduce tissue edema, improve movement and modulate discomfort*. This course will cover the effects of compression band flossing on connective tissue gliding, tissue traction and tissue compression. Relevant anatomy, physiology and neurology of influenced tissues will be discussed.Interventions with compression band floss (including direction and pressure concepts) will be reviewed and integrated into current rehabilitative concepts.
The term ‘flossing’ is commonly associated with the image of a thick rubber band wrapped around an athlete’s large muscles, however; ‘floss bands’ are an excellent tool for clinical care and a valuable tool for your patient’s and athlete’s self care programs.
These courses are intended for health professionals with a basic understanding of soft tissue techniques.
Functional Movement Training (FMT) courses are taught by industry leading experts in movement assessment, performance and rehabilitation. CEUs may be offered for DC, ATC, PT, LMTs, LAc, OTs and personal trainers. If your profession & state is unavailable, we do not currently offer CEUs – however, we are continually adding additional licenses.
At the conclusion of the course, attendees will be able to:
- Define, understand and integrate the myofascial sequencing model
- Define, understand and integrate the myofascial sequencing model
- Discover and explore neuroanatomy of the dermal/fascial subsystem
- Recognize and demonstrate a novel skin/fascial glide screening process
- Describe and interpret current research as it relates to connective tissue gliding and pain modulation
- Differentiate compression floss band wrapping techniques with graded exposure of tension, direction and pressure parameters
- Define, practice, and explaincompression floss band application techniques and link them to appropriate soft tissue pathology
- Compare, contrast and perform various methods of current rehabilitative treatment (open and closed chain exercise) techniques with compression band floss
- Introduce and integrate musculoskeletal diagnostic ultrasound to identify abnormal tissue gliding
This course is 6 hours in length and a 30 Question multiple choice quiz will be required after completing the course to receive your CEU certificate. A 70% test score is required to pass and receive CEUs. The quiz can be open book and unlimited attempts on the quiz are allowed.
