PART 1 – Introduction to New Joint Mobilisation Methods

Monday, March 8th at 19h – 20h UK time
  • History of development of the New Joint Mobility methods
  • Essential details of Synovial Joint Anatomy
  • Clarification of terminology related to fibrosity
  • Instruction in how to perform four assessment methods essential to this joint mobility process
  • Instruction in two different treatment techniques both useful to free joint capsule adhesions
  • Example applications of these assessment and treatment methods to several synovial joints in diverse parts of the body will be presented

PART 5 – Anatomy and Biomechanics of Tendons

Monday, April 5th at 19h – 20h UK time
  • The anatomy and normal biomechanics of tendons will be presented.  This will include description of each of the two very different kinds of environment that surround portions of tendons.
  • The patterns of fibrosity seen in the relationship between tendons and their environments, and how the fibrosity affects mobility.
  • Adaptations of the assessment methods presented in Module 1 for joints, will be presented for use with the relationships between tendons and their environment. Tendons of diverse types and body locations will be described
  • Application of the treatment methods presented in Module 1 for joints, will be presented for use with the relationships between tendons and surrounding tissues, and demonstrated on diverse tendons

Monday, April 12th at 19h – 20h UK time
  • Practical application of the assessment and treatment methods for tendons presented in module 5
  • Participants will bring a household member or other Covid-safe practice partner
  • Instruction will be given in how to apply the assessment and treatment methods presented in module 5 to a series of diverse tendons, and webinar participants will practice these under supervision
