PREREQUISITE: IMMT Foundations
Our pelvis is a complex structure that performs many essential functions. It creates a basin to cradle our organs, an attachment point for our muscles and is foundational in locomotion and stability. Trauma, visceral dysfunction, non-optimal loading and poor posture are only some of the reasons things go wrong in this area. The complexity of this region and the hundreds of assessment and treatment techniques that can be applied is often overwhelming to the clinician. This course teaches the participant to begin to assess the pelvic region from a holistic and integrated perspective.
After reviewing the relevant anatomy and biomechanics, time will be spent familiarizing the clinician with how to effectively and accurately palpate through this region. Visceral palpation will be introduced in addition to palpation of the muscular system during core recruitment. Participants will learn how to use the IMMT concepts to help identify which areas are in the most dysfunction and then how to to build effective treatment programs that are holistic.
If you ever feel overwhelmed by this region and how to effectively treat it, or you want to learn how to bridge the gap between manual therapy and exercise for the treatment of pelvic dysfunction, this is the course for you.
PREREQUISITE: Pelvis 1
This two-day course builds on the concepts that were introduced in level one. A heavier focus will be placed on the assessment and treatment of the viscera and how to integrate exercise into optimizing holistic health through this area. Participants will learn how to identify when the viscera is in dysfunction, differentiate between optimal and non optimal core recruitment and how to address these issues. A real time ultrasound will be used to help clinicians hone their palpation skills so that they are able to build a mental map of what good vs poor core recruitment feels like.
The second day will be centered around assessing this area through movement, integrating your new techniques and generating logical, progressive loading exercises.
This course will help the clinician bridge the gap between acute rehabilitation and high performance training. It is a must for those wishing to have a holistic understanding of how to treat pelvic pain regardless of the chronicity or acuteness of the injury.
