Calling all Philadelphia and South Jersey manual therapists! We are hosting SMART Tools with The Training Room!

Dr. Mark Kemenosh and Associates with the help of our good friends at The Training Room Physical Therapy group of South Jersey are proud to announce we are hosting the SMART Tools Level 1 IASTM certification at our shared facility in Washington Township aka Sewell, NJ.  We are putting the word out to everyone in manual medicine who would like to come out to feel welcome!  We plan to have DPT’s (Doctors of Physical Therapy), DC’s (Doctors of Chiropractic),  ATC’s (Athletic Trainers), and possibly more attending this event!  The course is a full two days and will be held on July 29th and 30th, a little down the road in the middle of summer!

SMART TOOLS – LEVEL 1 CERTIFICATION – SEWELL, NJ

Date: Sat July 29 – Sun July 30, 2017

Time: 8am – 5pm (each day)

Venue: The Training Room of Washington Township (Inside Velocity Sports Performance)

309 Fries Mill Rd
Sewell, NJ 08080

This course lays the foundation for how to properly use the SMART Tools most effectively with respect to movement. The tools were made specifically for these technique protocols to produce superior patient outcomes compared to other IASTM technique. This is an evidence-based technique that stresses early loading exercises and kinesiology tape after SMART Tools treatment.

The goal of therapy is to provide an optimal environment for the healing, by either modifying physiologic responses to injury (e.g., inflammation, muscle spasms, pain) or enhancing components of the normal musculoskeletal function (e.g., increase range of motion, increased muscular strength). No single therapeutic approach in isolation will completely resolve an impairment of musculoskeletal function. Smart Tool Plus® represents an approach to soft tissue manipulation that uses five different stainless steel instruments to release scar tissue, adhesions, and fascial restrictions. SMART Tools are designed to be used in conjunction with a thorough medical evaluation, movement based examination and other modalities to help patients overcome injuries.

Therapeutic stretches and exercises (preferably eccentric exercises) are necessary to promote tissue lengthening and collagen fiber realignment, which help to prevent the released tissue from becoming restricted again.

The primary objective of the Level 1 Certification course is to develop an understanding of the STP and how to apply it into the full spectrum of the musculoskeletal treatment approaches. By the end of the training, students will be able to:

Demonstrate a working knowledge of the STP Instruments, STP treatments and potential effects and benefits.
Identify and discuss the indications, contraindications (relative and absolute) of IASTM.
Review and develop a better understanding of soft tissue injury, healing and potential reactivity to instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization (therapeutic and adverse).
Develop skill and competence in the STP application of the IASTM to the major regions of the spine and extremities.

Treatment effects of IASTM

  • Breakup abnormal densities in tissue
  • Stimulate nervous system
  • Reinitiate first-stage healing in the body via proliferation
  • SMART Tools IASTM techniques aim to treat the following Tissue Extensibility Dysfunctions

(TEDS):

  • Scarring & Fibrosis
  • Facial Tension & Densification
  • Neural Tension
  • Muscle Shortening
  • Neurologic Restriction
  • Trigger Points

This isn’t Gua Sha, nor is this another general IASTM course. This is a movement-based IASTM course unlike anything currently offered. Our training course addresses the neurological component, as well as the physiological component of the IASTM and corrective exercises in ways other courses do not.

This course is designed for clinicians that either have never used tools or have been using tools for years. Each will come away with new, innovative material.

So if you want faster patient outcomes, quicker recovery time, improved clinician ergonomics to save your hands, and last but not least, no patient bruising, then register for a course today and add a powerful technique to your toolbox… no pun intended.
