Developed by physical therapist, Dr. Ryan Whelton, the Whelton Myofascial Referral TechniqueTM is a simple and very effective treatment that:
- Instantly relieves pain
- Dramatically increases range of motion
- Decreases muscle spasm
- Accelerates healing
Whelton Myofascial Referral TechniqueTM is based on Dr. Whelton's identification of how the body connects in a very precise way. Every millimeter of the body has direct connections to other areas of the body. Points are stimulated with exact patient positioning and exact angles of pressure that Dr. Whelton has outlined. When these connections are acheived in an effort to affect an injury or painful area on another part of the body the results are often remarkable. He has essentially identified "Off switches" for most pain problems.
Courses are open to massage therapists, athletic trainers, physical therapists, physical therapist assistants, occupational therapists, occupational therapy assistants, chiropractors, nurses, medical doctors and osteopathic physicians.
Whelton Methods® are now being used in the NFL and MLB.
