Treatment of the Pelvis and lumbar spine: level 1 Muscle Energy Course  

Advanced Manual Therapy Associates


This is a highly practical course run by Dr Barb Hungerford who reviews pelvic biomechanics, pelvic stability and the mechanisms that assist load transfer through the lumbo-pelvic region. You will learn to apply a comprehensive assessment protocol for Lumbar & pelvic injuries including assessment of the pubic symphysis, sacroiliac joint, and lumbar spine articulations.
You will learn specific Clinical assessment tests to diagnose articular vs Muscular injuries at the Pubic symphysis, SIJ and lumbar spine before progressing into application of muscle energy techniques and articular glide techniques for pubic, SIJ and lumbar facet joint injuries.

Course Aims:
- review anatomy and biomechanics of the pelvis and lumbar spine, with interpretation of current research findings in this area of science
- review the definitions of joint stability and functional load transfer through the lumbo-pelvic region
- apply a biomechanical model in order to define dysfunction in the lumbo-pelvic region such as excessive compression (stiff joints, fixated joints, overactive global muscle activation) or insufficient compression (loose joints, insufficient or altered recruitment of the local muscle system).
- present a biomechanical framework as a basis for assessment of articular and muscular function in the lumbar spine and pelvic region
- provide practical sessions to teach functional assessment of Pelvic mobility and Stability
- provide practical sessions during which muscle energy and articular techniques are applied to specific Musculo-skeletal dysfunctions of the lumbar spine and pubic symphysis and SIJ’s.
- Discuss common dysfunctional patterns found in the lumbo-pelvic region, and how to use clinical findings to develop an effective treatment plan that incorporates appropriate manual therapy, specific exercise rehabilitation, and effective education.
