      The Orthopaedic Approach

The Orthopaedic Approach for Massage Therapists: The Shoulder region

The Orthopaedic Approach, created by Dr. Lanre Salami, is a complimentary approach to orthopedic massage involving comprehensive, easy to follow orthopedic assessment, orthopedic massage, and treatment planning. No other courses offer you the skills to identify muscular dysfunction with confidence, and perform cross fiber frictions with such accuracy!

This module will help you to answer important questions when treating the shoulder, such as: How do I produce reliable results when treating rotator cuff injuries? How do I manage a client with FROZEN SHOULDER? My client cannot sleep on their shoulder, what does that mean?

Using orthopedic assessment protocols and cross fiber frictions you will be able to identify and manage the following conditions upon completing this course:

  • Rotator cuff tendonitis
  • Adhesive capsulitis
  • Traumatic arthritis
  • Bursitis
  • AC joint dysfunction
  • Other muscular dysfunctions of the shoulder

Feel confident in your ability to provide the best possible management for musculoskeletal conditions of the shoulder. Join us for this two-day weekend module!

OSCE Prep Course
May 11 & 12, 2019

SESMT

OSCE Prep Course
May 11-12, 2019, Total Hours: 16

In the OSCE prep course, students learn about the OSCE – the Objectively Structured Certification Examination that is administered to RMTS of the 5 regulated provinces (Newfoundland, PEI, New Brunswick, Ontario and British Columbia). The course is not a requirement for application for the examination, however is extremely beneficial to those wishing to take the course as it provides insight into what is expected. This course also gives a brief description of regulation in Alberta and is geared in preparation for the inevitable OSCE examinations RMT’s in Alberta will have to complete in the near future. Students are taught what the OSCE is in terms of examination. They also learn about the MCQ, a multiple-choice exam that must be completed prior to application to the OSCE portion of the certification. Students gain knowledge about the college of massage and the difference between a college and an association.

We cover other topics like:

• Where and when the OSCE are held
• How to apply, and what to do if you fail
• The examination stations, what to expect and how to succeed
• The components of each station
• Each station in detail
• Rules and regulations
• Hands on time for 2 different complete OSCE-like scenario exams
• Breast and Chest Wall massage (as per MTAA standards of practice 43 and 44 – TIME PERMITTED)

This course is open to RMT’s who have completed a 2200-hour course. Books are provided for you. You must bring scrubs and look professional. It is beneficial to also bring a set of comfortable clothing (shorts/sweatpants) as there is a hands-on component that may require you to have something more comfortable to wear.
