ACTIVE ISOLATED STRETCHING – (A.I.S.) 3 Days – taught by John R. Howard
LMT #002148, NCBTMB-CEP #451030-09, A.C.E Provider A.I.S. – ACTIVE ISOLATED STRETCHING & STRENGTHENING (25 CEUs NCBTMB) by NCBTMB & the State of GA
• Purpose of stretching • Reasons for lack of flexibility
• Basic overview of stretching techniques – Ballistic, Passive, Static stretching, Proprioceptive
• When is stretching important – warm-up, warm down, rehabilitation
• Outline of important Active Isolated Stretching principles – identify, isolate and intensify, physiology – blood flow, oxygen (exhalation, inhalation), stretch reflex, Golgi tendon reflex, fascia, joint capsule, muscles
• Active Isolated Stretching considerations – Sherrington’s Law, “no pain, no gain” innervation, inhibition – concentric, eccentric contraction, external assistance Active Isolated Stretching – Rehabilitation Modality – trigger points, bio mechanical stress, soft, pliable scar, removal toxins, acids Active Lymphatic system, aids in lung ventilation, nourishes and lubricates muscles specific injury techniques
• Identify the specific muscles to be stretched & strengthened • Isolate the muscles to be stretched & strengthened by using precise localized movements • Perform treatment for specific strength of fundamental movements Materials:
You will receive the Active Isolated Stretching: & Strengthening: The Mattes Method Books and a stretching rope.
