TREATMENT OF THE PELVIS LEVEL 1: Due to Covid 19 this course will only run in Sydney & Melbourne in 2021. All 2021 courses will be smaller with social distancing & appropriate PPE measures in place. In this course a biomechanical framework is used to introduce comprehensive assessment & treatment techniques for the pubic symphysis, sacroiliac joint, and lumbar spine articulations. Evidence based Clinical assessment tests are used to assist diagnosis of articular, myo-fascial and motor control dysfunctions in the lumbo-pelvic region. Application of muscle energy techniques and articular techniques are then practiced in relation to this biomechanical assessment framework, in order to provide a patient specific treatment plans.
