Ligamentous Articular Strain Technique (L.A.S.T.) is a historically innovative (originating in the late 1800’s), precise, research based technique that is simple to understand and can be implement it into your practice immediately. During these courses, we discuss the reasoning of and the research supporting L.A.S.T. Research has informed us that techniques targeting areas of high concentration of mechanoreceptors (entheses), have longer lasting effects. L.A.S.T. affects our nervous system by manually targeting the ligamentous and capsular tissues, meniscus at the entheses of these tissue attachments. In the courses we challenge some myth and trend pertaining to treatment and rehabilitation of peripheral joint injuries. We also discuss how to communicate more effectively with our patients about their injuries. Each course provides the RMT with information and research pertaining to Fascia, Mechanoreceptors, Ligamentomuscular reflexes and the neurophysiological effects manual therapies such as L.A.S.T. have on the body. Therapists will be able to educate and inform their patients on the reasoning for, the effects of, and expected outcomes of incorporating and utilizing L.A.S.T.
