Home Study Program-Muscle Balancing; Upper Quadrant
The MBUQ DVD and Study Guide outline an upper quadrant evaluation and an indirect treatment approach to treat protective muscle spasm. The DVD and Study Guide are divided into an easy to use format allowing you to view the upper quadrant evaluation and to view each individual MB treatment technique for the cranium, cervical spine, thoracic spine, rib cage, shoulder, elbow, wrist, and hand
The DVD and Study Guide outline and review the principles and practice of Muscle Balancing. The purpose of MB is to treat protective muscle spasm by inhibiting muscle spindle activation, thereby decreasing afferent impulses to the brain. By interrupting this pathway, the patient’s muscle is allowed to assume a normal resting tone, thus relieving the tender point, protective muscle spasm, fascial tension, joint hypomobility, swelling, and pain.
MB will also improve posture, range of motion, and the flow of nerves, arteries, veins, lymphatics, and energy to, within, and from, every organ and body part. This results in improved health and homeostasis.
Muscle Balancing (MB) is an expansion of the technique formerly referred to as Positional Release Therapy (PRT). The DVD Set will feature references to PRT now called MB.
