Prerequisites: CTB Low Back, Sacral, Gluteal & Pelvic Pain Online Course & Exam, Level 1 or equivalent Thai training, CTB Fundamentals; Functional Anatomy Online or in-person or equivalent training recommended.
Foot and lower leg pain can be debilitating and severe, and cause other problems up the kinetic chain due to disturbed gait. This area is also one in which Clinical Thai Bodywork techniques can have some of the most profound benefits. You will learn to address pain following breaks and sprains, plantar fasciitis, calf pain and tenderness, rigid ankles, big toe pain (which can be misdiagnosed as gout) and chronic conditions such as hyperpronation and hammer toe.
Clinical Thai Bodywork was designed to bridge the gulf between traditional Thai approaches and modern western clinical environments. The framework of CTB constitutes one of the most efficient and effective approaches available for orthopedic rehab, relief of chronic and acute pain, recovery from injury, and correction of myofascially derived dysfunction.
Prerequisites: Online CTB Foot, Ankle & Lower Leg Pain and CTB Fundamentals are required. Functional Anatomy is strongly recommended. About prerequisites: these are for the benefit of the whole class and help us to ensure that our limited time is spent as usefully as possible. The online version of this class contains much of the lecture material required and is integral to understanding the in-person material. We cannot cover basic trigger point info and anatomy in these classes and still have time to cover specific pains and treatments. If you do not have this information, you will be at a disadvantage and will be considered an auditing student. Auditing students are expected to OBSERVE ONLY and keep their questions to a minimum, although are welcome and will still benefit from the material.
