Restoring a Stable Base
The sacrum is the cornerstone through which the weight of the upper body flows. Eighty-five percent of the population experiences pain directly related to SI joint dysfunction, which connects the sacrum to the pelvis. When the SI joint works in harmony with the pelvis, a wonderful self-locking device develops allowing us to move with ease and power.
Instructor Peggy Lamb will guide you through innovative and comprehensive strategies, including osteopathic-derived muscle energy techniques and neuromuscular therapy to restore the core and the SI joint. This lab-intensive recording is essential for anyone who uses manual therapy to achieve optimal outcomes for their clients.
