Managing Lumbopelvic Hip Complex Disorders: Combining Movement, Taping, & Manual Therapy to Release Pain Locally & Globally
June 16, 2016 @ 8:00 am - 3:30 pm MST
With over 4 hours of lab time, this hands-on seminar prepares you to:
• Assess and treat chronic back and neck pain, hamstring tendinopathy, psoas pain, sacroiliac dysfunction, and more. Hands-on labs throughout the day show you how to determine the lumbopelvic-hip complex’s (LPHC) force-coupling joint-by-joint, covering key topics such as postural musculature analysis, orthopedic assessment, and testing of functional and dynamic movements patterns.
• Stretch, strengthen, and release tightness in the psoas major and iliacus musculature. Practice combining PNF techniques and multidisciplinary treatments to manage areas of myofibrosis and lengthen/strengthen muscles within the posterior kinetic-chain, both locally and globally.
• Correct upper- and lower-crossed syndromes. Take home evidence-based taping, exercise, and stretching regimens for postural imbalances and chronic musculoskeletal pain, in conjunction with manual therapy and instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM) treatment plans.
• Identify and treat muscle chains, while restoring joint stability and muscular balance. Evaluate the roles of synergists, muscle slings, and myofascial trains. Then explore a comprehensive rehabilitation approach in lab, combining PNF stretching and strengthening, functional taping, joint mobilization, trigger point therapy, myofascial release, and other evidence-based interventions.
• Repair sacroiliac and lumbosacral junction inter-muscular relationships between the upper and lower extremities. Discover multidisciplinary soft-tissue manipulation interventions that accelerate the healing process by breaking down adhesions, liberating contractures, lengthening tight muscles, strengthening weak muscles, and integrating functional movement patterns.
