So many clients come to us with low back pain. Yet is is amazing that many therapists do not have a clear and thorough knowledge of the anatomy of this all important region. They also need clarity regarding how to address it systematically through massage. This one-day class will concentrate on reviewing and deepening the important knowledge of anatomy, your ability to palpate it, and treat low back pain with deep massage techniques.
- The anatomy of the sacro-iliac ligaments
- The anatomy of the erector spinae, multifidus, and quadratus lumborum
- The role of rectus abdominis and the other front torso muscles play in the three-dimensional experience of the back and waist
- Special Deep Massage techniques (prone and side-lying) for this region, including: cross-fiber friction, myofascial release, trigger points, and active release techniques
