Myofascial Disruption Technique
Soft tissue refers to muscle, ligament, tendon, and other soft tissues that make up the musculoskeletal system. The musculoskeletal system is often overlooked as the source of a person's pain. However, it has now been proven that many pains that are chronic and previously thought to be associated with structures such as the spine or skeletal system are in fact distortions of soft tissue. Dr. Hayes co-developed an exciting treatment technique called Myofascial Disruption Technique. Dr. Brad Hayes in association with Dr. Malcolm Conway and Dr. Hugh Gemmell helped develop and helps teach this technique to doctors internationally.
Integrative practitioners are increasingly accustomed to diagnosing and treating small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) and intestinal hyperpermeability as clinical entities. Both of these conditions are at the heart of many other known and named conditions. However, despite our ever-increasing understanding and appreciation, both SIBO and intestinal hyperpermeability require highly complex protocols, are often difficult to resolve, and prone to recurrence.
Course Learning Objectives:
- Participants will learn to work with patients
o for whom the elimination diet has failed
o who have increasingly difficult symptoms to manage
o who cannot tolerate conventional approaches
Lower Extremity Treatments to Restore Function

Dr. Hayes feels that the principle reason doctors are not getting paid for what they deserve is due to poor documentation. Claims adjustors must match their standards for payment against the documentation of the doctor. If it does not match, the doctors' bills get reduced. You will learn what you have to do in order to be paid for your services.
This is the perfect mix of education, evidence-based techniques, and hands-on training. Chiropractic adjustments will focus on the full spine, as well as extremity techniques. The myofascial portion will consist of in-office and home protocols. In-office techniques will be focused on instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization, both immobile and with movement, (similar to Graston technique) and an array of trigger point therapy, pin-and-stretch, and other myofascial release techniques. The home protocols will be centered around the use of a foam roller, roller stick, lacrosse ball, and mobility peanut. Finally, rehabilitation will start with assessment protocols created by Vladimir Janda and Craig Liebenson, educational background, and corrective exercises/protocols. No matter what your background training may be, you will definitely be able to apply something to your everyday practice to help patients and boost revenue
