16 contact hours – 16 1-A hours anticipated
Instructors: Neal O'Neal, PT
Class is held 9-6 Friday and Saturday.
Fees: $500/student, Associates of Autumn Mayberry may utilize a discount code found on her website for a discount code. Course limited to 24 students.
Learning Objectives: Upon course completion, the participant will be able to-
1) Palpate the discrete structures of the lumbar spine, pelvis, and lower extremity;
2) Ask appropriate patient history questions that take into account new, research-based understanding of lumbopelvic function;
3) Identify, palpate and test motion or irritation of the lumbopelvis to include joints, capsules, muscles, fascia, blood vessels, and lymphatic tissue.
4) Demonstrate various treatment strategies such as Muscle Energy Technique, Counterstrain-positional release, Neurolymphatic and Neurovascular Techniques, and NeuroDynamic Reintegration© (NDR©).
5) Perform appropriate Global and Regional provocation tests for the lumbopelvis and lower extremity.
6) Apply a specific Home Exercise Program based on objectively assessed neuromuscular imbalance and somatic dysfunction.
Materials Provided: A binder of the course materials will be provided to each student to follow along and take notes during the lecture and lab portions of the class.
Purpose: The purpose of this class is to provide the clinical practitioner with the knowledge of how recent research has changed current clinical treatment approaches to the biomechanical pelvis and lower extremity.
Expected outcomes are to develop effective delineation and treatment strategies based upon an integration of new information and the extensive body of knowledge of the anatomy, physiology, and embryology of the lumbopelvis. This class will enhance participant learning through the use of discussion, audio-visual materials, recent research evidence, and extensive lab-based learning.
