Course Description

Roland Lucas presents the scientific basis and clinical paradigm behind the Restorative Mechanotherapy rehabilitation approach. He highlights the relationship between Restorative Mechanotherapy and other Physical Therapy treatment philosophies, including biomechanical optimization, tissue protection and anti-inflammatory treatment in addition to comparing and contrasting risks and benefits of each approach. Roland aims to define indications for each philosophy, allowing therapists to select the most effective rehabilitation method for each client. The remainder of the presentation focuses’ on 1) the relationship between anatomical and histological connective tissue and pain-free function; 2) the theoretical basis supporting the use of manual therapy and therapeutic exercise to initiate mechanotransduction, enhancing connective tissue health and improving activity tolerance; 3) a clinical paradigm for the use of Restorative Mechanotherapy and the evidence that supports it's effectiveness.
