Benjamin Institute

Essential Principles DVD

Incorporating material that Dr. Benjamin has synthesized over the last 23 years, this program teaches all of the basic principles and theories needed to understand the pain and injury assessment and treatment process.

This Essential Principles program provides the foundation upon which all the other learning programs are built. The program is organized as a series of short segments teaching and demonstrating each essential principle. The concepts addressed are:

  • injuries (the secret of chronic injuries, external and internal scar tissue, the meaning of referred pain in Orthopedic Medicine, the significance of ligament laxity);
  • assessments (resisted tests, passive tests, active tests); and
  • treatment modalities (friction therapy, exercise therapy, injection therapy). Principles to enhance a person healing capacity are also reviewed.

4 CE Hours*.

Essential Principles is INCLUDED when you purchase Common Injuries, The Knee, or The Orthopedic Massage Series Library, at no additional charge.
