The SI Joint and Pelvic Girdle

Why take this Continuing Education Course?

This two-day intermediate level seminar is designed to provide the medical professional with a simplified evidence-based approach to managing dysfunctions of the pelvic girdle. Anatomy of the SI and pelvic girdle region and the evidence-based treatment theory form the foundation of the lecture. In-depth analysis of the biomechanics of the SI and pelvic girdle region are presented and form the basis for evaluation of alignment within the SI and pelvic girdle. The participants, through extensive lab exercises, will be led through the development of treatment plans by applying muscle energy, joint mobilization and muscle re-education techniques. Course instruction will also focus on developing a working knowledge of the theory behind muscle energy and joint mobilization techniques combined with supporting evidence from the current literature. The practical application labs will be supplemented by lecture and group discussions. Efficacy of the various techniques for SI and pelvic girdle dysfunction will also be discussed in order to allow the participant to determine the best evidence based treatments for their clients. A course manual with illustrations and step-by-step instructions will assist the clinician in immediately and confidently applying these skills to their clinical setting. This information is essential to develop a comprehensive evaluation and treatment program for the SI and pelvic girdle region.
