    ERGON Technique IASTM Course Basic

    MRP: AED 1500
    Course by : Pavlos Angelopoulos


    ERGON Technique IASTM Course Basic

    The technique was created through applied research and long- term evaluation at the Human Evaluation and Rehabilitation Laboratory of the Physiotherapy Department of University of Patras.

    ERGON® Technique is an innovative development of older IASTM approaches (GUA SHA, GRASTON technique, SMART TOOLS technique, Tools assisted massage technique etc.) and is based on the myofascial meridians theory as first described by Thomas Myers.

    The Ergon Technique relies on unique clinical equipment called ERGON Tools. Ergon Tools applied with special ERGON Technique can:

    a) Detect and release –loosen scar tissues, adhesions and fascial stiffness

    b) Increase local perfusion, and

    c) Decrease muscle tone and myofascial pain.

    The ERGON ® Technique techniques are applied in specific points of soft tissue adhesions which, upon release, improve the functionality of the area of the body, in the space of merely a few sessions.

    The therapeutic effect of ERGON® Technique is sustained for many days afterwards, and when combined with other treatment techniques (stretching and neuromuscular control exercises techniques) can even become permanent.

    This particular technique allows ERGON®-certified Therapists to

    1. Assess with precision myofascial areas of high sensitivity, and
    2. Restore biomechanical function of joints by dissolving adhesions, regaining normal myofascial rolling and reducing muscle spasm and pain.

    Learning Objectives of the ERGON - IASTM Sports Course

    At the end of the training, trainees will have gained theoretical education on the subject of Fasciae (Thomas Mayer Myofascial Meridians theory, soft tissue pathologies, fasciae, and their healing, being fully capable to:

    • Assess possible fascial pathologies
    • Approach areas difficult for the human fingers to access
    •  Actively intervene on hard tissue release cross-links between connective
    • Restore range of motion of joints in a minimum number of treatment sessions
    • Treat effectively most musculoskeletal pathologies/injuries
    • Cause controlled and targeted re-injury in case of poor healing (tendinosis / overuse injury)
    • Stimulate anabolic processes in connective tissues (collagen fibres)
    • Accelerate tissue through fibroblast activation
    •  Facilitate reflex changes in chronically incorrect muscle activation patterns
    • Effectively heal most neuro-musculoskeletal injuries
    • Increase tension produced in one or more joints
    • Combine    techniques     (ERGON®     Technique     and kinesiotherapy) - Facilitate functional rehabilitation
