“Integrated Neuromuscular Re-Education: Positional Release” is an introductory hands-on approach to correction of biomechanical (somatic) dysfunction, using positional release (strain-counterstrain) and muscle energy therapy/ PNF (Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation). This course introduces positional release. The goals of INMR are to restore normal soft tissue tone and elasticity, relieve pain, improve strength, and optimize performance.
Identification and correction of abnormal neuromuscular tension, painful trigger points, motion restrictions and strength deficits are the focus of this course. Techniques learned during this course may be immediately applied in a variety of clinical situations. A review of the current evidence-based literature illustrates the efficacy of these interventions. This course includes lecture based on current evidence, and demonstration of hands-on techniques. Clinical cases are discussed to illustrate application of INMR into practice.
This Seminar-on-Demand is 4 contact hours in length (check your state’s approval status in the state specific course catalog for your profession).

Course Goals & Objectives:
This course is intended to instruct the professional in a Seminar-on-Demand video study on the uses of INMR, including restoring normal soft tissue tone and elasticity, relieving pain, improving strength, and optimizing performance.
At the end of this course the professional will be able to
- Identify the anatomy and physiology in regards to positional release.
- Identify between the types of releases: direct vs. indirect.
- Recognize the Kinetic Chain Theory and how it applies to positional release techniques.
- Identify the treatment principles and three outcomes of performing positional release techniques (PRT).
- 5. Recognize three indications and contraindications for PRT.
Criteria for Completion:
A score of 70% or more is considered passing. Scores of less than 70% indicate a failure to understand the material and the test will need to be taken again until a passing score has been achieved.
The participant will have one year from the date of purchase or until the course expiration date to complete this course, whichever comes first.
