    Facilitated Stretching, Fourth Edition CPD Course offers a hands-on approach to helping clients and athletes enhance performance through PNF stretching techniques. Manual and massage therapists, athletic trainers, personal trainers, coaches, and other health care professionals will learn techniques for assessing current muscle function, improving range of motion, and increasing strength with a dynamic combination of photos, online video, and self-assessment tools.

    This continuing education course is supplemented by the text Facilitated Stretching, Fourth Edition With Online Video. The text includes a full-color interior with more than 450 photos and illustrations to provide professionals with a visual demonstration of the material. Stretches are demonstrated on a treatment table, mat on the floor, chair, cable-pulley machine, and weightlifting bench and grouped according to each joint. An appendix showcases anatomical planes of motion, anatomical terms, and types of joints to help professionals understand the body and how the material can be used in helping athletes. The recorded webinar offers further application of the foundational aspects of facilitated stretching from book author and expert Robert McAtee, LMT, CSCS, C-PT.

    The study guide for the course leads students in answering a series of questions on more than 90 stretches. Self-quiz questions and answers are a preparation tool for the continuing education exam taken at the conclusion of the course.
