Flexibility for performance:
MUSCLE Extensibility Contractile tissue
Analyse for potential restrictions in contractile muscle tissue that cause painful compensations
Our clients and athletes acquire restrictions for many reasons in normal functional and sporting activities. It is quite usual for them to compensate for these by increasing movement somewhere else. If these weak links (compensations) are poorly controlled they can contribute to performance deficits or tissue stress resulting in pain.
This module identifies ways to assess for and regain mobility or restrictions in contractile tissue (muscle). This module will analyse the relationships of restrictions and weak links.
Topical issues abound as many contemporary sources are identifying the importance of finding lack of functional range in both athletes and general population.
This course is suitable for sports, exercise and medical professionals including:
Participants MUST be able to demonstrate that the course material is within their scope of practice and that they have appropriate professional liability insurance to cover them for their attendance on the course and their course content.
This module covers contractile (muscle) ‘flexibility’ issues:
Following this module the students should be able to:
and pre-course preparation
Observation of movement and practical soft tissue techniques are a key elements of this course, so please wear appropriate clothing (e.g. sports wear).
Revision of muscle anatomy.

Knowing rules of tissue adaptation gives an infinite number of opinions to reduce the restrictions of the ‘repeat offenders’ amongst contractile and connective tissues.
