CTB for Hand, Forearm and Elbow Pain (eCourse)
Continuing Education Status
We are in process of submitting this course to NCBTMB for remote home-study CE credit.
This course covers specific, detailed Clinical Thai Bodywork treatments for elbow, forearm, wrist and hand pain. We cover pain conditions involved in diagnoses such as tennis and golf elbow, lateral epicondylitis, tendonitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, cervical radiculopathy, thoracic outlet syndrome, and more. Many diagnosed "conditions" often are actually the result of myofascial trigger point referral and can easily be treated using CTB techniques.
Clients presenting with forearm and hand pain, numbness, weakness, loss of coordination, tingling, limited ROM and other symptoms are often excellent candidates for Clinical Thai Bodywork. These symptoms are often caused by trigger points, and the therapist must learn to follow symptoms cascading from long upstream referral chains from muscles in the back and shoulder.
Hand and forearm pain is one of the most difficult areas to understand, due to the large number and complex arrangement of the 32+ muscles in this area. It's critical to be able to prioritize the most important muscles and treat them efficiently without getting bogged down in areas that aren't relevant. This amazing online resource is like an encyclopedia of the anatomy, indications, trigger point locations, best treatment techniques, inter-muscular relationships, and more, broken down by area and muscle. Once you enroll, you have lifetime access and can stream the material on any of your devices as you practice or prior to treatments.
Attending In Person Trainings at Thai Bodywork
We want to encourage our online students to consider attending our in-person trainings in Evanston, IL, as there are great advantages to both forms of study. Online courses allow you to review and replay the information and take it in at a pace that you can manage. In-person trainings allow us to interact with you, tune your technique, answer questions and provide invaluable feedback from experienced teachers, assistants and other students.
Becoming proficient in CTB is a gradual process and the in-person component is very important. To receive the greatest benefit, students will ideally experience both online and in-person training. However, we realize some may find this financially prohibitive. As an incentive, we're offering a 50% discount on enrollment to the in-person class equivalent of your online course. The converse is also true. If you have attended a course at Thai Bodywork, you are entitled to a 50% discount for the online version.
**Keep in mind, not all of our online classes have in-person equivalents (For example, CTB for Shoulder, Upper Back and Arm Pain is taught in person, but the CTB Shoulder Protocol course is ONLY online - the same goes for ALL Protocol courses).**
If you wish to take advantage of this offer, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and they will assist you in getting your discount. Please see our Course Catalog page for a full listing of when our in-person trainings are offered throughout the year. CTB trainings typically are taught every 10-12 months.
