    Learning Objectives
    After completing this course, you will be able to do the following:
    • Articulate at least three factors that may contribute to the development of forward head posture (FHP)
    • Demonstrate at least two key positional release therapy (PRT) techniques for treatment of FHP
    • Provide a rationale for the implementation of PRT in a treatment regimen for FHP

    In the Positional Release Therapy Video Series, Dr. Timothy E. Speicher demonstrates how to use positional release therapy to gently treat patients of all ages who have acute and chronic somatic dysfunction, including tightness and pain.

    Focusing on forward head posture, this video imparts the following to students:
    • A brief overview of the physiological aspects of the condition
    • Explanations on how the injury develops
    • Tips for using assessment to identify the injury or dysfunction
    • Treatment methods for forward head posture using positional release therapy
    • Ancillary treatment techniques and exercises that can be performed to augment the treatment
    The video series, modeled after Dr. Speicher’s workshops and seminars, features him using contemporary science, evidence-based research, and years of expertise to guide real students and practitioners through assessment and treatment using positional release therapy. Each video is followed by an exam that contains 30 to 35 questions. Upon passing the exam, you may print out and submit a certificate for continuing education credits.

    All these treatment methods are also available in Clinical Guide to Positional Release Therapy.

    Audience

    A continuing education course for health care providers—including athletic trainers, physical therapists, licensed massage therapists, occupational therapists, and physiotherapists—who utilize manual therapy to alleviate musculoskeletal dysfunction.

    About the Author

    Timothy E. Speicher, PhD, ATC, LAT, CSCS, is president of the Positional Release Therapy Institute. He is considered a leading expert in positional release therapy (PRT). Speicher discovered and developed the fasciculatory response method (FRM), which has revolutionized the way PRT is applied, practiced, and taught. He established the Positional Release Therapy Institute to provide education on the FRM and PRT through the institute’s courses while allowing for its application to a patient population at the institute in Ogden, Utah.

    Speicher frequently speaks on PRT to professional organizations and at conferences, and his research has been published in academic journals. In 2014 he received the first-place award for outstanding manuscript on evidence-based concept mapping by the Athletic Training Education Journal, published by the National Athletic Trainers’ Association (NATA). In 2013 he won the journal’s first-place award for outstanding manuscript on case-based analogical reasoning.

    Speicher, who has held several faculty and research appointments at various academic institutions, is a member of the NATA and was on the board of directors of the NATA Research & Education Foundation. Currently, Speicher holds two faculty appointments: affiliate faculty for the University of Idaho, where he teaches neuroscience for the master’s degree in athletic training program, and assistant professor at Rocky Mountain University of Health Professions, where he provides instruction in evidence-based medicine for the doctorate in health science.
