Description

An Integrated Approach to Manage the Lumbar Spine & Sacroiliac Joint

Low back pain is one of the most prevalent and costly ailments seen in a variety of healthcare settings. Diagnosing and treating low back pain can be challenging and frustrating. Due to the complex nature of the lumbosacral region, finding the root cause of lower back pain is often difficult.

This recording simplifies evaluation and treatment for the most common lumbar and sacroiliac joint dysfunctions from a manual therapy perspective. Discover a streamlined approach for care of the lower back that is applicable to both acute and chronic conditions. Manual techniques covered in this course include muscle energy, mobilization, articulation, and manipulations. A brief overview of Pilates-based stabilization exercises will also be covered to ensure long-term effectiveness of the manual corrections. You'll be able to immediately utilize these techniques to improve their clinical efficiency.
