Objectives: • Design effective strategies to decrease the stress response in kids with learning disabilities to improve information processing, listening skills, and comprehension. • Summarize the different ways anxiety manifests in the classroom (worry, social isolation, attention deficits, etc.) and determine the appropriate strategy for reducing symptoms. • Implement a three-step skill building model for stress management among young clients. • Utilize classroom friendly calming and relaxation activities to keep students engaged. • Determine the signs of normal aging vs anxiety disorders to enhance teaching effectiveness. • Evaluate the impact deep breathing exercises have on anxiety to enable task completion in the classroom.

Feel your confidence grow and your skills sharpen as you gain new, evidence-based strategies to release the quadratus Lumborum and piriformis and stop the pain in as little as 4 to 6 sessions. Identify the root of the problem the first time by using special assessment tests and measures, so you can address the pain and restore function quicker. Utilizing case studies and demonstration lab time, you will walk away from this workshop immediately ready to confidently tackle low back and pelvis pain in your patients. Peggy Lamb, LMT, has spent the last 30 plus years as a manual therapist. In that time, she has treated numerous low back and pelvic dysfunctions by effectively releasing these two difficult and often overlooked muscles, giving her patients a new lease on life. Her experience and knowledge will allow you to do the same for your patients. Objectives: • Classify the anatomy of the low back and pelvis and what roles the piriformis and quadratus lumborum play. • Identify assessment tests for a short piriformis and piriformis syndrome. • Examine trigger point referral patterns of the piriformis and quadratus lumborum. • Practice techniques for palpating, stretching, and releasing the piriformis and lateral rotators. • Create plan of care using standing, prone, and side-lying techniques to gently and effectively release the quadratus lumborum and ultimately save your hands. • Discuss strategies for avoiding reoccurring injuries of the low back and pelvis.
