  • Type:
  • Home Study
  • Time:
  • 3 hours
Can you identify the physical abnormality that Dr. Janet Travell, the pioneer of myofascial pain and trigger point training, stated is the cause of approximately 80% of all myofascial pain? If you are like most massage therapists, your massage training didn't teach on the most common cause of foot, knee, and hip pain, which is a condition called Morton's Foot Structure (sometimes referred to as Morton's Toe). Morton's Foot Structure is primarily caused by one of two anatomical conditions of the foot, which causes hyperpronation on walking, which in turn tends to lead to structural compensation of the knees and hips, which then results in the development of trigger points and myofascial pain. This online massage therapy CEU course covers the anatomy, symptoms, causes and treatment of Morton's Foot Structure. In this course, you will learn what that condition is and learn how to assess your clients to see if they have it. You will learn the many muscles that it impacts so that you can address the problems it has caused, and you will learn an inexpensive and simple way to significantly reduce the pain your clients have as a result of this condition.
