Workshop Philosophy

This MTFI workshop provides a critical insight into the complex anatomy and function of the musculo- fascia-skeletal system. The course facilitates analysing the mechanism behind possible dysfunctions, providing new clinical skills to enhance rehabilitation strategies and to treat the dysfunctions.      

This course facilitates the identification of muscular imbalances, the fascial concepts and the various joint dysfunctions. In present day many patients come with trigger points along with muscular and fascial tightness. The MET and PRT techniques are very useful for correcting the muscular and fascial dysfunctions. PRT is an amazing treatment technique for the acute involvement of soft tissues (Muscle and ligament) and MET is an excellent tool for chronic Muscular tightness and trigger point.
