Instructor: Bob McAtee, LMT, BCTMB, CSCS, has maintained a full-time massage therapy practice for over 40 years, specializing in sports massage, flexibility work, and soft tissue therapy, with significant clinical experience treating people with injuries and chronic pain.

About the Workshop: Massage therapists work with soft tissue injuries in a way that few other practitioners do. That’s why athletes and active individuals experiencing chronic conditions of the lower extremity seek out their massage therapists to help them recover. Sports massage techniques are widely used to address musculoskeletal complaints of the lower extremity and are a valuable adjunct to the repertoire of any massage therapist interested in treating injuries.

This 8-hour seminar focuses on these chronic injuries that respond well to clinically-oriented sports massage:

-Chronic ankle sprain
-Achilles tendinopathy
-Fibularis tendinopathy
-Hamstrings strain and tendinopathy
-Adductor strain
-Jumper’s knee (patellar tendinopathy)

The format for discussion, demonstration, and practice is organized the same for each of these conditions:

-Introduction to the condition, typical history, signs and symptoms, review the relevant anatomy

-Demonstrate and practice assessment, including appropriate orthopedic and special tests

-Demonstrate and practice palpation examination

-Demonstrate and practice each element of the suggested treatment plan, then integrate them all in a “session.”

-Review self-care options for the client, including exercise and flexibility work

-Discuss perpetuating factors

The hands-on portion of this seminar includes a range of applications, including compressive effleurage and petrissage, broad cross-fiber work, longitudinal stripping, pin and stretch techniques, isolytic contractions, deep transverse friction, and facilitated stretching.

The information and treatment protocols presented in this live seminar are adapted from Bob’s new book, Sports Massage for Injury Care released in 2019 by his long-time publisher, Human Kinetics.

8 CE hours Approved by NCBTMB, and through CE Broker for Georgia, Florida, South Carolina, and Tennessee.
