U1.) Assessment and Treatment of the Lumbar & Sacral Ligaments (Post Falls May 19, 2018)


Product Description

Instructor: Brian Utting, LMT; NCBTMB 0110411-17

The Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that there are more than a million workers who suffer back injuries in a year, and that they account for about 20% of the total work-related injuries. Back pain can be debilitating for many, and even when it's just a nuisance, it can significantly impact quality of life for our clients. Massage can be a helpful tool in the recovery and rehabilitation process, but it is all too common for clients to receive massage that has a minimal impact on their pain and discomfort.

One of the things commonly missing is a better understanding of and ability to specifically palpate the terrain of the low back and sacrum, particularly connective tissue structures like the various supporting ligaments. These ligaments are every bit as important as the muscles, bones, and fascia, but are often overlooked by massage therapists, chiropractors, and physical therapists.

In this class, you will learn to palpate and treat some of the most commonly injured ligaments in the low back and pelvis, including the iliolumbar, intertransverse, sacroiliac, sacrotuberous, supraspinous, and interspinous ligaments, as well as a few key postural muscles.

What to Bring: Set of sheets, face cradle cover, pillow or bolster; wear loose clothing.
