Based on myofascial pain studies presented at Harvard Medical School and tendonitis vs. tendinosis research dating back to 1946, participants will learn new techniques that will forever change the way they approach myofascial, trigger point, nerve compression pain and tendon pain.

In the first half of the day learn innovative, structurally-oriented routines which offer pain-free multi-modality methods for achieving immediate and permanent results for Rotator Cuff Injuries, Shoulder Impingement, Bursitis, Pectoralis Minor Tendinosis, Bicipital Tendinosis, Rhomboid Pain, and Thoracic Outlet. Participants will also take a detailed look at “Multiple Crush Phenomenon”: The Role that cervical conditions play on weakness, numbness and tingling into the shoulder, arms and hands. Ground-breaking Frozen Shoulder corrections will highlight this dynamic interactive workshop.

After lunch you will focus on Medial and Lateral Elbow Pain, Muscle Tendon Strains, Nerve Entrapments, Pronator Teres Syndrome, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, De Quervain’s Tenosynovitis, Progressive Joint Arthritis, and Trigger Finger.

James will incorporate dazzling 3-D functional anatomy and human dissection models to support his multi-disciplinary approach for assessment, treatment and self-care of each condition.  This dynamic multimedia presentation entails theory, real case studies, and 70% hands-on training.
