Orthopedic Friction for Tendon and Ligament Healing - Chicago, October 2019


  • Canis Bodyworks at Anti-Cruelty Society 510 North LaSalle Drive Chicago, IL, 60654 United States (map)

Many times, practitioners working with soft tissue fail to apply techniques to address tendons, ligaments, and fascial attachment sites. Orthopedic friction is often the missing link.  This form of soft tissue manipulation improves connective tissue mobility, breaks down and realigns scar tissue, and deactivates myofascial trigger points in ligaments and periosteum attachments of tendons.  

In this workshop, participants learn how to apply orthopedic friction to specific structures for all soft tissue injuries and to promote overall healing.
