Details:A client with low back pain suffers from an array of compensations caused by joint movement restrictions in the pelvis and lumbar spine. These compensations can mislead the practitioner, waste valuable session time and delay integration. This algorithm is designed to expedite the identification and resolution of joint restrictions in clients with complications in the back and pelvis. The algorithm begins with a simple movement test which has a simple positive or negative result. That result directs the practitioner to a specific palpation test which identifies the joint restriction. The algorithm then leads you to the procedure to resolve the restriction. All of these restrictions can be resolved in 15 to 25 minutes. This will greatly reduce or eliminate the pain, inflammation, and compensations All of this without having to be an expert in spinal mechanics. This course is designed for the easy understanding of principles and immediate application of techniques. The course ends with a low back clinic, to reinforce your new skills so that you can begin using them on your first day back at work.
