Participants will learn gentle manual therapy techniques and neurodynamics for the abdomen, pelvis and upper leg. Labs will progress from acute to persistent pain treatment options and include education in self-treatment techniques for improved patient outcomes. Participants will be able to screen and design a progressive treatment for all of the major pelvic nerves.
1) Participants will be able to explain the structural relevance of the low back and pelvic anatomy in relation to peripheral neuropathy.
2) Participants will demonstrate active movements which will promote healthy and normal neurodynamics for the low back and pelvic neural anatomy.
3) Participants will be able to explain the biopsychosocial theories underpinning manual therapy for back and pelvic pain. 4) Participants will be able to demonstrate non-provocative manual therapy techniques for the pelvis and low back. (all external techniques)
