The Hip/Thigh Protocol
Prerequisites: 5-Element Fundamentals and Muscle Testing Basics for Manual Therapists; Core Muscles and Techniques
Duration: 1 Day
More than just a physical problem
Athletes often talk of strained or pulled ‘quads’ and ‘hams’. Such conditions involve the tearing of these muscles or their tendons and occur mainly in athletes who do not warm up properly. They will often say it didn’t really hurt at first but a few hours later the pain intensified. They may have seen another practitioner and been given anti-inflammatory medication and had physiotherapy or massage. But they may have experienced a poorer response to the treatment than they expected and are now looking for an alternative.
In this workshop you will develop skill and understanding in evaluating and balancing muscle energy imbalances in the hip and thigh regions. With K-Power® the usual 1-3 weeks of rest followed by stretching can be dramatically reduced.
In this workshop you will learn:
The Hip and thigh muscles
- Quadriceps (4 specific tests)
- Fascia lata
- Gluteus medius
- Gemelli superior and inferior
- Quadratus femoris
- Obturator internus and externus
- Gluteus maximus
Learning to recognise significant clues that clients give such as, “so and so is being a pain in the butt over…” can be a very effective pathway to client management. The course therefore works with not only the physical but also the mental, emotional and metaphysical aspects of hip and thigh problemsDr Bruce Dewe, K-Power® Co-Founder
