Relieving Low Back Pain (4.0 CEUs)
Assessments and Techniques to Relieve Low Back Pain Taught in English and Japanese
Have you ever thought...
"Clients have been presenting me with some complicated low back pain issues, and I want to make sure that I am providing help that is safe, specific, and gets results, but I don't know how to do that."
"I feel there's something that I'm missing when it comes to resolving low back pain in my clients, because they keep returning with the same issues."
"I do great work, but I know it could be more efficient, effective, and detail focused. The basic training I received didn't give me the tools to work that way."
I used to think the exact same way
Low back pain can be a complex problem to untangle and it's something we encounter in our practices frequently. There's a lot of different ways to approach this problem, but it's difficult to know which techniques are safe and effective.
It's also challenging to resolve really complex issues only equipped with the techniques we all learned in basic training. You can easily exhaust the approaches you learned in your basic training and find the issue isn't getting resolved.
No matter how good you are or how hard you work, without the right skills, these challenging issues will continue to evade you! Developing the skills shown in this course has helped thousands of therapists since I've started teaching.
You must learn how to properly palpate the tissue
I can't stress this enough. If you're doing rote strokes and not listening to the tissue under your hands, more rote techniques won't work. Humans are unique and varied, what works for one client may not necessarily work for another.
You need to have the tools to be able to create sessions based on what's happening in the tissue beneath your hands in present time. To be able to do this, you must hone your palpation abilities and this course will help you do just that!
Understanding how to work the pelvis and the low back vertebrae are absolutely necessary skills!
I know this because navigating the soft tissue and bones of the pelvis and low back for the last 15 years has enabled me to help hundreds of clients find low back pain relief! Every time I work on a client with low back issues, I utilize the assessments and techniques shown in this course and I get results.
Low back pain can be a complex issue to work on, because the cause of the pain isn't always obvious. The culprit could be low back vertebrae or musculature, tight glutes, a sticky SI joint, a tight psoas, or a number of other potential issues that we can address.
In this course, you will learn assessment techniques that I regularly use to guide me to the area where my work can be most effective in resolving the clients pain. This helps take some of the guesswork out of my sessions, allowing me to work with more confidence, efficiency, and precision.
These techniques have been a keystone to the success of my private practice.
It really gets me when I see a skillful practitioner fail to get their clients out of pain when all they needed were some specific techniques and spinal mechanics knowledge. This is exactly why I put together this online course, just for you, to help you help your clients.
It has been my honor to help my clients find relief for their low back pain and I want to give you the tools to do the same for yours!
