Every Step You Take: Neurovascular Release and Gait Series Live Online with Kieran Schumaker

Expand your map of the nerves and vessels in the lower body

Kieran Schumaker has designed this experiential tour through the neurovascular network as a follow-up to the Anatomy Trains dissection series “Every Step You Take,” in which Tom Myers and Todd Garcia helped us look at the anatomy and dynamics of gait in the hip, thigh, knee, ankle, and foot. You do not need to have taken the dissection in order to attend and get benefit from this series.

Kier’s neurovascular anatomy lessons, Neurovascular Release techniques, and strategies are game-changers for massage therapists, physiotherapists, structural integrators, yoga teachers, Pilates instructors, and movement therapists.

Free your stride

Participants will experience better alignment while standing, ease in squatting, and strength in rising up onto the balls of their feet, with overall improvements in joint articulation and balance. Taking this for a walk or run, you will likely notice improved stride length and efficiency, and freer, more comfortable climbing and descending of stairs and hills.

Professionals involved in athletics and high-performance sports will come away with new strategies for injury prevention and rehabilitation, and tools for fine-tuning left-right balance throughout the lower body. Each module will cover anatomy and self-treatment techniques, with a sampling of manual therapy applications, followed by Q&A.

Note: If you cannot attend live, these webinars will be recorded and all registrants will receive access to the recordings for 45 days!

Webinar Schedule

Sunday, May 21, 2023

12:00 – 2:00 PM Eastern Standard Time (US)

Module 1 – Back Issues and Neurovascular Restriction in the Lower Extremities

Understand how vascular injury and vascular restrictions in the lower extremities contribute to:

  • Sciatica symptoms
  • Left-right imbalances that connect the lower and upper body
  • Low back pain
  • Functional scoliosis
  • Lower extremity nerve pain
  • Unevenness of gait

Kier will lead you through a self-treatment sequence on the floor that will free up your back muscles and improve spinal movement. Invite a friend or family member to receive a manual version from you in the second hour of class.

Props: You will need a yoga mat plus a soft tennis ball (youth tennis balls have lower pressure), a softly spiky ball, or a yoga tune-up ball. If you want to practice the manual version of this approach while Kier guides you through it, you will need a massage table set up near your computer.

Module 2 – Hips, Thighs, and Knees

In a tour of the thigh, Kier will show you how the arteries and nerves weave through the fascial layers of the quadriceps, hamstrings, adductors, and abductors.

Use your new understanding of artery supply to thigh muscles to work selectively on different sections of these muscles. This allows you to change fascial tension patterns

  • Pelvic torsion
  • Stride limitation
  • X-legs and O-legs
  • Patellar tracking issues
  • Several types of knee pain

After teaching self-treatment techniques, Kier will help you manually free up the hamstrings of a friend or family member.

Props: two chairs or stools that don’t swivel, plus a yoga bolster or buckwheat-filled meditation cushion, and/or a massage table.

Module 3 – Lower Legs, Ankles, and Feet

Learn how nerves and vessels interweave through the fascial layers in the lower leg and foot.

Kier will teach a self-treatment protocol for lower leg differentiation that will free vessels and nerves in the core of the leg to improve issues such as:

  • Knee hyperextension
  • Lack of foot arch support
  • Lack of foot pronation with arches that are high and stiff
  • A tendency to laterally sprain the ankle
  • Anterior compartment syndrome
  • “Stiff big toe”
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Morton’s neuroma

During this webinar you will experience:

  • Improved dorsiflexion during squatting
  • Stronger plantar flexion and greater stability when rising to the balls of the feet
  • Improved arch support while standing on one leg

With repetition of this differentiation technique, you and your clients will be less susceptible to injury in the lower leg and foot.

In the second hour of class, refine your understanding of Kier’s self-treatment protocol by practicing on a friend or family member.

Props: a foam roller, or a hard cylindrical water bottle
