Total Motion Release, TMR TOTS Level I: Focus on the Pediatric Patient
May 8 @ 8:00 am - May 9 @ 5:30 pm PDT$650.00
TMR uses the ICF model and follows an 8 step process to identify
limitations in mobility and their connection with functional
outcomes which match caregiver concerns. Range of motion
and/or control improves using indirect techniques by
understanding the relationship between a hypo mobile
one area creating hyper mobility elsewhere. When postural
symmetry improves the patient can better access control.
Caregivers are instructed in family friendly therapeutic play and
position activities to incorporate into daily routines. Therapeutic
positions are in the direction of ease which is well received by
patients as it is a pain free concept. Functional outcomes are
rechecked post treatment.
Total Motion Release‐Level 1 will provide extensive lab time for
the therapist to learn the foundational TMR concepts, a
systematic process to identify restriction in mobility, the single
plane exercises, combos and alternative positions. The student
will also be introduced to increasing range of motion with a pain
free method, strengthening, postural control, transitions, weight
shifting, pre‐gait and gait training.
A unique feature of the Tots course is individualized post course
coaching and support for the attendees. Post‐course coaching by
phone and email helps therapists master the TMR con
included in the price of the course.
