The piriformis and quadratus lumborum, often-missed muscles in back and pelvic pain, can mimic other dysfunctions frustrating your ability to identify the root of your patients’ problem. Not only that, the piriformis and quadratus lumborum are difficult muscles to palpate, leaving you feeling hesitant and uncertain in your treatment plan. Don’t go down the wrong treatment path, feeling defeated and worried that your client will face surgery that you can help them avoid. 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.
