What you'll learn in this health class:

This course covers tools and techniques to support the client in achieving and maintaining full recovery from their pain condition. CTB analyzes not only the muscular relationships that cause pain, but also the functional patterns and perpetuating factors that will make the pain come back unless corrected.

Anatomical differences such as leg length discrepancy, hemi pelvis discrepancy, hyperpronation, muscle weakness and imbalance, nutritional factors and postural variations all can play a role in perpetuating pain. Unless corrected, these factors will eventually cause the pain to return.

We review the asymmetry assessments and provide an opportunity for students to complete checkout. We discuss in detail how to design corrections in a way that is appropriate for each client.

The principles of CTB are a profoundly useful guide not only for treatment, but for self care, yoga practice and corrective exercise as well. We show the use of the Mighty Body Band, Muscle Liberator, EPS and other tools to support the client in achieving and maintaining a full recovery.

CTB practitioners are trained to serve as a guide and coach throughout the treatment and rehab life cycle. We show examples of using CTB concepts and teaching clients to use tools, contract/relax and muscle knowledge during their rehabilitation work.

Along with the in-person course, you will receive an online course that will take you through the techniques you learned in class and will serve as a permanent resource.

This course is intended to be the penultimate course in the CTB Practitioner Level Certification.

Prerequisite: CTB Fundamentals in-person or online course. For CTBP Certification students, prerequisites are all other 100-300 Level courses.
