On October 6, 2018, Dr. Jim Cerullo and six students attended a workshop in Rochester, NY, entitled Identification and Treatment Techniques Using Myofascial Release. This day-long workshop addressed current therapeutic techniques used to treat skeletal muscle trigger points to relieve pain and improve function.
The format of the workshop gave the students the opportunity to practice a variety of hands-on manual therapy techniques. In addition, students learned how to apply kinesiology tape, which is used to treat musculoskeletal injuries to major joints of the upper and lower extremities. Each of the students received a $75 grant from The Caroline & David D'Antonio Student Travel for Excellence Fund toward the registration fee.
