Dynamic Chiropractic – November 7, 1990, Vol. 08, Issue 23

Joseph A. Cimino, D.C. Keynote Speaker at MPI's 1991 Advanced Seminar Oahu

By Editorial Staff

Since his graduation from Western States Chiropractic College in 1985, Joseph A. Cimino, D.C. has actively engaged in the development and instruction of adjustive techniques and procedures.

As an instructor at Western States Science Department, he taught soft tissue treatment, palpation and adjustive technique courses.

Later on Dr. Cimino co-authored a manual on soft tissue treatment. Eventually, to his credit, Dr. Cimino's soft tissue courses were certified for post graduate continuing education by Oregon, Washington, Minnesota and New York Boards of Chiropractic Examiners.

Indeed as many can attest, Dr. Cimino has demonstrated great skill and understanding in teaching the art of various adjustive techniques, particularly the art of soft tissue treatment and manipulation. We feel especially lucky to announce that Dr. Cimino will be joining us this spring at MPI's Advanced Seminar in Makaha on the beautiful Hawaiian island of Oahu, February 17-23.

Dr. Cimino's course in Hawaii, Therapeutic Muscle Stretching is designed to introduce the doctor of chiropractic to the diagnosis and treatment of biomechanical structural abnormalities of the myofascial ligamentous structures of the body.

Dr. Cimino's objective is to: To integrate and build upon the doctor's previous knowledge and skills in static and motion palpation, anatomy, and biomechanics, as they apply to the treatment of soft tissue pathophysiological abnormalities.

To give the doctor an awareness of myofascial and ligamentous pathophysiological abnormalities.

To build upon the knowledge and palpatory skill necessary for effective soft tissue manipulation.

To provide a rational mode of therapy of myofascial ligamentous abnormalities.

To apply the treatment of soft tissue structures to the art and science of chiropractic manipulation.

Doctors who enroll in MPI's Advanced Seminar and attending Dr. Cimino's Therapeutic Muscle Stretching course will hear:

Introduction to indications/contraindications to soft tissue treatment, treatment guidelines and rationale, as well as review of Dr. Karl Lewit's theories on soft tissue dysfunction. The course also includes an overview of Vladamir Janda's categorization of muscle systems, the principles and application of Sir Charles Sherrington's observation of muscle activity.

Other sessions will cover in-depth Therapeutic Muscle Stretching (TMS) and practice of various stretching techniques on muscles of the upper and lower extremities. These will be integrated with hands-on practice and applications along with demonstration of "safe" home stretching exercises that will not compromise joint integrity and can be taught to the patient. Dr. Cimino's course allows for plenty of question and answer sessions which help the doctor gain a clearer understanding of what he is learning.

Following the seminar, attendees will be able to exercise the appropriate palpatory and proprioceptive skills necessary to rationalize the need for soft tissue manipulation. They will also possess an understanding of the normal and abnormal qualities of the myofascial ligamentous structures. In addition, they will have gained a demonstrable understanding of the appropriate skills necessary to provide proper therapeutic muscle stretching of shortened soft tissue structures.

We are sure that Dr. Cimino's course will be a memorable experience, sure to enhance the success of our Advanced Weeklong seminar.
