Debbie Roberts Seminars

MEDICAL MASSAGE SERIES

The ATM System Puts the “Fun” in Correcting Shoulder Dysfunction

Join Debbie Roberts for a high-energy presentation on her signature Assessment, Treatment & Muscle Stabilization (ATM) System that puts the “fun” in correcting shoulder dysfunction. Debbie, a personal trainer and group exercise leader for over 28 years, created this 3-part signature system to help therapists hone their skills in assessment, multiple treatment modalities, and ~ the missing finish piece ~ Muscle Stabilization.

In Debbie’s expert hands, you’ll learn to assess repetitive motion injuries resulting from participation in sports such as baseball, golf and tennis, as well as occupational activities common among house painters, office workers, hair dressers, nail technicians and even moms. In her workshops, Debbie covers a wide range of injuries including shoulder impingement, bursitis, shoulder tendonitis, and supraspinatus partial tears. You’ll leave this presentation with advanced hands-on skills along with iimmediate assessment tools you can add to your practice the very next day!

Debbie’s motto: “If you don’t assess you simply guess.”

Step #1 Assessment: Learn Manual Muscle Testing (East meets West).
Learn Orthopedic assessment protocols for the upper extremity including Goni-ometer measuring.
Learn how to read an MRI report for valuable treatment information.

Step # 2 Treatment: This is a hands-on workshop treating with Massage Cupping for Myofascial Release, Medical Massage, Muscle Energy, and PNF stretching.

Step #3 Muscle Stabilization: This is the best part! Based on steps #1 and #2, you’ll learn which muscles to stabilize for the best possible outcome for your client. Free Thera-Band with Shoulder Stabilization exercise sheet.

How can the ATM System make YOU a better therapist?

  • Assessment makes you more efficient in your treatment, thereby lessening the stress on your body.
  • Proper treatment after assessment means better results for your clients.
  • Knowing if the client has a mobility or stability problem lets you know exactly when and how to use muscle stimulation as a treatment protocol ~ so it’s fail-proof.
  • Assessment lets you track progress so you and your client know that the treatments are working!
