This course presents the most current evidence-based information used in the evaluation and treatment of the sacroiliac joint and lumbar spine. Clinical reasoning skills and clinical prediction concepts will be introduced when deciding on the treatment options of mobilizations, manipulations, and stabilizations. Regional interdependence concepts related to the thoracolumbar junction as well as the hip, and the influences of those regions on the lumbopelvic region and spine will be presented as well as discussion about a few special tests that have been utilized in the literature to help derive and lead you to the techniques that are proven effective in treatment.
Groups of exercises will be presented from a fairly cognitively-based, motor control emphasis with transverse abdominis activities, towards more functional weight bearing and sport-specific activities for stabilization of the lumbar spine and sacroiliac joint.
