Ultimately, you can find yourself going down the wrong treatment path, leaving you feeling defeated and worried that your client will face surgery that could be avoided. This seminar will give you the skills and tools you need to properly stabilize the SIJD and core. Feel your confidence grow and your skills sharpen as you learn special assessment tests and measures, so you can address the pain faster; and evidence-based osteopathic-derived muscle energy techniques and neuromuscular therapy to restore function quicker.
