Astoria, New York - Laura is a mother of 3 with a full time job. “Working in a supermarket is very physically demanding, and my lower back suffers,” says Laura. During the past two weeks, Laura has been receiving physical therapy for her lower back pain and has seen significant improvement.
Since her problem is related to her muscular system, she receives MyoFascial trigger point therapy. Health care providers in Wyoming now have the opportunity to learn this technique from leaders in the field.
To help physical therapists with the proper treatment for people like Laura, Hands-On Seminars has just announced an upcoming intensive training seminar in MyoFascial Trigger Point and Proprioceptive Therapy. The course will be taught in Afton, Wyoming September 20-21, 2014.
This seminar teaches the most successful approaches for the evaluation and treatment of MyoFascial Pain & Musculoskeletal Dysfunction. The unique approach of this teaching integrates Myofascial Trigger Point & Proprioceptive concepts in a systematic, comprehensive manner.
The scientific background and methods taught utilize an Evidence-Based Model with solid research and techniques that have been tried successfully for years and incorporates the 47 years cumulative clinical experience of Dr. Dimitrios Kostopoulos & Dr. Konstantine Rizopoulos, authors of bestseller book The Manual of Trigger Point & MyoFascial Therapy. The course contains extensive lab sessions of all muscle systems discussed at the course and also includes the Spray & Stretch Technique.
Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:
- Discuss the diagnosis and treatment of MyoFascial Dysfunction.
- Demonstrate how to diagnostically choose the proper muscle systems to work with.

He is Board Certified from the National Association of MyoFascial Trigger Point Therapists, having served as President from 1992-1994.
“Treating the muscles associated with lower back pain in a gentle and non-threatening manner often leads to a softening of the tissues and a sense of warmth. The patient is surprised at how such gentleness improved the manner in which they move. You will learn these techniques and much more in PT01.” – Richard Finn, HOS Instructor
Participants will learn advanced diagnostic and treatment techniques and will participate in extensive lab sessions. Instruction includes utilizing advanced multimedia methods.
Appropriate for PTs, PTAs, OTs, OTAs, LMTs, ATCs and Physicians. On completion of this course participants will receive 16.8 CEUs.
