This brand new class was developed based on the feedback from practitioners. Practitioners tell me over and over again that they have learned many different techniques over the years but are not sure which technique to use or where to start. This course will teach you the problem solving skills and steps necessary to quickly decide whether to take a total body or local approach to the treatment of lower back dysfunction. Instead of just treating the site of pain, you will learn an osteopathic philosophy that will help you to perform an effective differential diagnosis which will give the skills to know where to treat and what to treat for better results.
The focus of this class is principle based and we will be to show you how to rule out a total body approach to treatment and focus more on a local evaluation and treatment. You will learn to be able to assess and treat joint, muscle and fascial dysfunction of the lumbar spine, pelvis and sacrum.
You will be given a highly illustrated manual outlining each evaluation and treatment technique. This course involves a combination of theory, demonstration and hands-on practice. Evaluation and treatments will be performed by each participant using the methods learned. Plenty of time is allotted for hands-on practice as well as questions, discussion and review.
