Guidance will be provided on how to inhibit overactive musculature. This will enable the course participant to restore normal resting muscle position. Participants will be able to immediately apply PRI clinical assessment and management skills when treating diagnoses such as piriformis syndrome, ilio-sacral joint dysfunction, and low back strain. Objectives: • Outline biomechanical principles of lower half musculoskeletal dysfunction as they relate to rotational patterns of the femur, pelvis, and lumbar spine, as well as occupational influence. • Describe how musculoskeletal dysfunction relates to articular chain asymmetry and patterns of synergistic compensatory activity. • Recognize how to apply examination and assessment skills to neuromuscular dyssynchrony and postural asymmetries that affect stability and function of the lower half. • Identify how to restore synchronous activity across the lumbo-pelvic-femoral complex and improve neuromuscular motor control of the muscles that stabilize these joints. • Outline how to design an interventional plan that includes various activities of daily living positions to decrease asymmetrical musculoskeletal demands.
