Description

Low back pain – these three words used to evoke a myriad of responses in how I treated my patients. Prescriptions have long been an answer for pain reduction but now we must question such methods. Is exercise purely the answer? Where does manual therapy fit into the exercise regimen? And what about other treatment methods – IATSM, dry needling, and taping?

Simplify the lumbopelvic complex by learning a step-by-step approach to finding the cause and specific interventions that attack the cause at its root. I will show you simple and effective manual therapy treatments including joint mobilization, soft tissue mobilization (both manual and instrument assisted), dry needling, and taping all geared to help your patients return to function and reduce pain. I’ll also share how to skillfully apply pain science education and how your specific language choices can help break through fears and misconceptions surrounding pain.
