Masterclass on Biofeedback and Somatic Feedback


Masterclass on Biofeedback and Somatic Feedback

Muscle pain or Myopain conditions are one of the primary causes of chronic pain, leading cause of missed work and disability, and highest drivers of health care costs. These pains are often caused by dysponesis, which refers to unaware misdirected muscle efforts not necessary for task performances. It can consist of 1) excessively tightening muscles that are used for the task performance, 2) tightening muscles not necessary for the task performance (inappropriate co-contractions), 3) not relaxing muscles after the task has been completed, or 4) not relaxing muscles momentarily during task performance to allow for ongoing regeneration (surface electromyograhic gaps/micro-breaks).These chronic covert muscle tensions are a significant co-factor in the etiology, maintenance and progression of many disorders such as headaches, backaches, joint pain, repetitive strain injuries, myalgias, etc. Dysponesis can be identified with surface electromyographic (sEMG) feedback or Muscle Biofeedback. sEMG is a technique used to measure the electrical activity of surface muscles. Muscle activity is recorded to determine whether a client exhibits a pattern of muscle recruitment, which may be indicative of dysfunction, and whether a muscle re-education treatment plan would benefit the client. sEMG is a useful clinical tool to assess, monitor, provide feedback to the therapist and client, document muscle dysponesis, and teach clients awareness and voluntary control to reduce their dysponesis and improve health. The most common goals of sEMG biofeedback are muscle relaxation, reduction of excessive and/or inappropriate muscle activation, or the learning or re learning of muscle control. This intensive and experiential workshop will be conducted by 2 of the world’s foremost experts on biofeedback and somatic feedback.
