Full Body Cadaver Anatomy Course

Understanding your clients’ anatomic structure is imperative to keeping them healthy and progressing appropriately. This course will provide an in-depth mechanical foundation for health, fitness, and rehabilitation specialists. Students will experience the musculoskeletal system in 3-Dimensions, while examining the mechanical ability of all tissues involved in motion. We will explore function outside of anatomical position by examining muscular participation with respect to axes of motion and attachment sites. Participants will start to learn that the fascial structure is an integral part in joint stability and joint function, and will begin to understand the importance of the role fascia plays in muscle function and integrated movement. Discover what traditional Kinesiology did not explore, and use new-found knowledge to explore the structural influences of the fascial web. Classes contain both lecture and hands-on human cadaver exploration. Students spend an entire 8-hour day in the lab with a Prosected human specimen exploring: Muscle attachment sites, Muscle fiber direction, Fascial attachment sites, Fascial fiber direction, Joint axes, Common anatomical occurrences not typically in books and Anomalies. Palpation techniques, joint motions, and joint surfaces will be explored.

This weekend course is comprised of a 2-hour lecture, a full 8-hour day in the lab, and a 4-hour application workshop..

Orientation Lecture (Friday, 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.)
Upon arrival students will participate in a preparatory lecture discussing lab procedures, lab behavior, the benefits of exploring the myofacial skeletal system in this unique way and answering any questions students may have regarding cadaver exploration. Pictures will be presented.

Full Body Exploration (Saturday, 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.)
Students spend an entire 8-hour day in the lab with a Prosected human specimen exploring: Muscle attachment sites, Muscle fiber direction, Fascial attachment sites, Fascial fiber direction, Joint axes, Common anatomical occurrences not typically in books and Anomalies. Palpation techniques, joint motions, and joint surfaces will be explored.

Exercise Application and Mechanical Analysis of Movement Workshop (Sunday, 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.)
The weekend concludes with a 4 hour lecture focusing on application and mechanical analysis of movement, exploring joint structure, joint range of motion, muscle mechanics, muscle function, and common flaws in traditional and “functional” strength exercises. Different types of stretching and “release” techniques (myofascial release, active release and massage) will be examined for their influence on muscular control, and ultimately, joint stability. Find out if you or your colleagues may be contributing to your clients’ dysfunction due to mechanical intricacies rarely explored in the exercise and rehab industry.
