CLINICAL MANUAL THERAPY WITH OSTEOPATHY TECHNIQUES MODULE 1 / LUMBOPELVIC COMPLEX
Complaints of lumbopelvic pain and dysfunction are the most commonly encountered by clinicians. In addition, medical diagnosis is often unclear and specific structural diagnosis has not proven to correlate with clinical symptoms. This workshop examine the kinetic linkage of the lumbar spine, sacroiliac joint (SIJ), hip and the pelvic musculature.
Participants will be taught:
- Differential diagnosis between lumbar spine and SIJ dysfunction
- Apply articular assessments and treatment techniques for the lumbar spine, pelvic complex and SIJ, based on the combination of Maitland, Kaltenborn, Brian Edwards, Mulligan and Osteopathic concepts
- Apply different assessments and treatment techniques for the lumbopelvic complex
- Apply myogenic assessments and treatment techniques for the SIJ and lumbar spinal segments
- Exercise based therapy using form/force closure and movement functions for the lumbopelvic complex.
The workshops are designed for licensed healthcare practitioners, who are allowed to use manipulative techniques in their practice and jurisdiction, including physicians and physician assistants, dentists, physical therapists and chiropractors.
This course runs from 30th March 2018 until the 1st April 2018 (3 days).
