Websites and Courses

These websites have a lot of information in various forms. Courses I have taken from these sources are typically related to Fascial Manipulation, dry needling, pelvic health (men/women), and exercise although they offer much more. Listed in alphabetical order.

Appalachian Physical Therapy our practice, and in my humble opinion, a great place! Lots of resources and links to workshops, brochures, and newsletters on all kinds of topics.

APTA Pelvic Health Lots of good information on, obviously, things related to pelvic health for men, women, and children.

Fascial Manipulation Association the main source for information related to FM. Features course listings all over the world, research articles, webinars, and also has a find-a-provider link.

Fascial Manipulation Workshops another provider of FM courses, also has a find-a-provider link, research articles, and course listings.

Fascia Research Society a nice resource for information on fascia including articles, webinars, conferences, etc.

International Myopain Society

Myopain Seminars Jan Dommerholt, PT, has done much to support the expansion of dry needling for clinicians internationally. Website offers much information on their broad span of course offerings (dry needling, FM, and much more) as well as research articles, blogs, a find-a-provider link, and informative webinars.

Postural Restoration Institute another approach for evaluating and treating that utilizes exercise (primarily) to make needed changes in the body. They have some unique constructs, and some interesting exercises!

Structure & Function website of Sue Falsone, physical therapist and athletic trainer. Offers nice articles, courses (FM, dry needling, etc.), blogs, a find-a-provider link, and much information from an industry leader. You can also catch her book, Bridging the Gap.

Spinning Babies for birthing professionals (midwives, doulas, obstetricians, nurses, chiropractors, and some physical therapists!). They address the fascia in pregnant women with various positions and movements in a marvelous effort to make birth safer.

Trigger lets you search the body by muscle (if you know the name) or by a symptom chart that links you to which muscle and trigger point in that muscle may be causing symptoms. Nice for giving an idea of how symptoms may extend beyond the problem site, although it puts much emphasis on muscle.
