The M2-Advanced Training course objectives are designed to: Advance knowledge of GT examination procedures for assessing musculoskeletal dysfunction while introducing the principles of regional interdependence and functional testing. Enhance clinical decision-making skills during the application of GT. Advance repertoire of GT interventions for the management of musculoskeletal dysfunction/mechanical pain. Develop a higher level of skill acquisition for utilizing GT while introducing movement, resistance, weight bearing, and provocation patterns to treatment. Review major GT concepts covered in M1 (eight fundamental strokes, ergonomics, scar & edema techniques, physiology of GT, if necessary). Provide an opportunity for participants to discuss patients that have challenged them since they started incorporating instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM) into their practice. Introduce advanced GT skills incorporating IASTM with movement, with resistance, in weight bearing, during provocation, and with therapeutic exercise typically prescribed for common musculoskeletal pathologies. Review selected case studies that illustrate advanced clinical applications of IASTM. Share most recent research findings pertaining to IASTM.
