Description

Your work with lower back pain can give clients their lives back, allowing them to once again enjoy the things that debilitating pain had taken from them.

But the iliopsoas, the biggest factor in low back or pelvis pain, can mimic numerous back and hip dysfunctions frustrating your ability to identify the root of your clients’ problem.

Not only that, but the iliopsoas is a difficult muscle to palpate, leaving you feeling hesitant and uncertain in your treatment plan. Ultimately, you can find yourself going down the wrong treatment path, feeling defeated and worried that your client will face surgery that you can have helped them avoid.

Feel your confidence grow and your skills sharpen as you gain new, evidence-based strategies to release the iliopsoas and stop the pain in as little as 4 to 6 sessions. Identify the root of the problem the first time by using special assessment tests and measures, so you can address the pain and restore function quicker.

Utilizing case studies and demonstration lab time, you walk away from this workshop immediately ready to confidently tackle low back and pelvis pain in your clients.

Peggy Lamb, LMT, has spent the last 30 plus years as a manual therapist. In that time, she has treated numerous low back and pelvic dysfunctions by effectively releasing the iliopsoas, giving her clients a new lease on life.

Her experience and knowledge will allow you to also safely and gently release the fascial tissue so you can easily and confidently do the same for your clients.
