Course Description:
This lab intensive manual therapy course presents the use of mechanical movements as part of the evaluative process to lead to proper selection of techniques to address joint dysfunctions and muscular imbalances of the lumbar spine, pelvis and hip. The emphasis of this course will be on performance of Muscle Energy and Soft Tissue Mobilization Techniques. We will compare and contrast the traditional osteopathic methods of physical examination of the lumbar spine and pelvis with the mechanical diagnosis method of McKenzie and then blend them together into an efficient progression of care. Muscular imbalances will be identified based upon the principles of Janda and addressed with both Soft Tissue Mobilization and Muscle Energy Techniques. Appropriate functional exercises for a home exercise program will be discussed or demonstrated. The laboratory sessions will consist of hands on demonstration followed by an opportunity to perform the techniques and select exercises under the supervision of the instructor. Cases will be presented and discussed to allow for critical thinking in the evaluation and functional treatment process. This course will provide the participant with the understanding and necessary skills to enhance clinical reasoning and manual skills to apply these techniques in the clinical environment.

• Compare and contrast differing methods and philosophies of evaluation and treatment for the lower quadrant.
• The participant will be able to identify and palpate anatomical landmarks and muscles in the lumbar, pelvis and hip regions.
