The AAMT Conference will be held in Sydney on May 21-23 2010.
Members should not miss out on the opportunity to meet Whitney Lowe from OMERI http://www.omeri.com/
at the AAMT Conference or attend the workshops on assessment and orthopaedic massage.
Whitney Lowe?s Orthopedic Massage system is a research-based and outcome-based system. Whitney has spent the last 20 years researching, teaching, and exploring the applications of massage therapy. The techniques and methods he uses are a combination of proven and cutting-edge approaches to treating pain, injury and other conditions with massage.
Lowe uses the term 'orthopedic' to refer to the locomotor system, as it is used in conventional medicine. An analogy can be made with the phrase 'orthopedic medicine', which describes a conceptual approach to medical practice. Similarly, the phrase 'orthopedic massage' describes a particular approach ? a comprehensive system ? rather than prescribed techniques.
The liberty that massage therapists experience after learning this approach comes from the freedom to actually treat their clients problems as unique. Being able to 'think outside the box' and with skillful analysis of the client's problems, results in happier clients and more successful therapists.
Lowe's Four Primary Components of Orthopedic Massage
- Orthopedic Assessment
- Matching the Physiology of the Injury With the Physiological Effects of Treatment
- Treatment Adaptabilit
- Understanding the Rehabilitation Protocol
Orthopedic massage enables the practitioner to choose the most effective treatment for a client?s particular pain or condition.
The orthopedic massage practitioner is knowledgeable and skilled in their understanding of pain and injury conditions and massage treatment techniques. They are also skillful critical thinkers. This combination of expertise provides for the most effective treatment of soft tissue pain and injury conditions using massage therapy.
