This is a new method of quickly, effectively and accurately diagnosing isolating soft tissue pathology in asymptomatic and symptomatic presentations.
This is a new course designed to show how Dr. Leahy accurately palpates (and subsequently fixes) soft tissue structures. We will isolate as many muscles and nerves as possible, after which we will move the adjacent structure in order to accurately identify each specific muscle and nerve. Any altered relative motion between structures should be evident during these procedures.
The goal of this course will be to develop the skills necessary to accurately palpate and identify structures as well as their motion.
