The Myalgia Patient is a course that addresses the specific approaches required for treatment of chronic pain or "myalgic" patients. How to recognize and approach treatment of these patients is of the utmost importance as this condition is often associated with depression and feelings of hopelessness which contribute to poor response to treatment.


Myalgia in its various forms are chronic or episodic inflammatory conditions where the patient experiences pain in places and amounts that seem far in excess of the causative factors. These patients are often minimalized and discounted by allopathic medicine or are deemed fit for psychological / psychiatric care only. The crux of the matter is that these patients experience constant low grade inflammatory conditions that are easily flared up by seemingly mild physical and mental stress or a combination of both. The advanced clinician will recognize these underlying conditions and appropriately alter the normal treatment regime to gently enhance systemic and local tissue drainage, improve systemic and local arterial feedback for oxygen and nutrient delivery to capillary beds, and appropriately return the patient to biomechanical function through normal manual techniques fine tuned by "listening" to the level of challenge that the structure and tissue can accept. Treatment will focus on understanding chronic pain and its triggers as well as Chapman's Neurolymphatic Techniques, Bennett's Neurovascular Reflexes, Neural Dynamic Re-Integration and layer and regional palpation skills.

The Myalgia Patient


Friday and Saturday, 9am to 6pm

October 13-14th, 2023


Pursuit Performance Training

Cost: $550 Live; $375 on Zoom

Learning Objectives: Upon course completion, the participant will be able to-

  1. Identify the patterns of deep muscle pain in local area or global areas indicative of myalgia.

  2. Describe the pain pattern of various somatic and visceral structures.

  3. Identify the role of inflammation in the somatic and visceral structures that lead to myalgia.

  4. Differentiate between the role of arteries and veins vs. arterioles and venules and capillary beds in myalgia.

  5. Demonstrate Bennett's Neurovascular, Chapmans' Neurolymphatic, and Neuro-Dynamic Reintegration (all two-hand techniques) in somatic and visceral structures involved in myalgia.


Target audience: Licensed healthcare providers including, but not limited to:

PT, AT, DC, MT, RN, OT, LMT, and ND.

16 contact hours  


Instructor: Neal O'Neal, PT 

Class is held 9-6 Friday and Saturday.


Fees: $500/student live, $375/student on Zoom.  


Materials Provided: A binder of the course materials will be provided to each student to follow along and take notes during the lecture and lab portions of the class.

Purpose: The purpose of this class is to provide the clinical practitioner with a strong working knowledge of the the underlying anatomy, physiology, embryology, and pathology of the upper extremity and how that impacts dysfunction, how to approach treatment osteopathically, and how to manually treat the dysfunction.
