This video covers the rotator cuff, elbow, wrist, fingers, thumb, ankle & knee! Learn to alleviate pain with 47 highly effective neuromuscular techniques! Get a 3-dimensional view of the muscles, which have been modeled out of clay and feature computer generated trigger point referral overlays.
This great video not only covers neuromuscular therapy, but includes functional assessment work, so you know where to work, and how. Along with range of motion and resistive tests, you will learn basic postural evaluation techniques. As part of a comprehensive treatment protocol, discover how to work on the tendons, ligaments and muscles with effective neuromuscular and deep tissue strokes. Finally complete the work with stretches.
This video along with The Torso will prepare you to handle the most common injuries in every joint of the body. Used as support for a 100 hour neuromuscular and functional assessment course, this video is packed with useful, easy to understand information that you can start applying to your practice right away.

MASSAGE MAGAZINE says: "To Riehl's credit, his knowledge of the subject matter is evident & he makes some of the concepts, like pelvic torsion & subsequent compensations, useful even for advanced therapists. All viewers will gain insight into the nature of myofascial pain in the torso and extremities, and effective treatments... Giving clear instructions and explanations, Riehl encourages intuition while competently and carefully teaching the mechanics of this powerful treatment approach."
INSTRUCTOR: Sean Riehl has taught massage nationally, presented at the AMTA California conference, written multiple articles appearing in Massage Magazine and the Biotone Newsletter as well as being the author of a number of DVDs on massage
DETAILED CONTENTS: This video covers 47 techniques, 30 muscles and 22 trigger points. In the lower limb section Mr. Riehl deals with sprained ankles, Achilles' tendonitis, knee evaluation, anterior and posterior cruciate ligament strain, and anterior and posterior knee pain. Then he shows a rotator cuff evaluation (both resisted testing and range of motion tests), muscle and tendon work on the rotator cuff muscles, evaluation and treatment of tennis and golfers elbow. The forearm section covers the evaluation and treatment of the finger, thumb and wrist muscles, including causes of carpal tunnel syndrome and ligament strain vs. muscle/tendon injuries. This video takes the complicated subject of the forearm and makes it understandable. With these techniques shown in this video, you should be well equipped to assess and perform quality work on any of these joints.
