About the Workshop:


 “Americans spend at least $50 billion each year on low back pain, the most common cause of job-related disability. Back pain is the second most common neurological ailment in the United States — only headache is more common.” -- National Institutes of Health

Back pain is an enormous healthcare issue.  It is surprising that many therapists do not have a thorough understanding of the anatomy of the back and of the techniques which may have the most beneficial effects.  In this one-day workshop, you will learn amazing and thorough ways to help people with back pain.

In "Orthopedic Massage for Low Back Pain" you will learn about:

  • The causes of low back pain
  • “Z-joint” dysfunction
  • Neuromuscular dysfunction
  • Anatomy of the low back
  • Traditional treatments

The soft tissue manipulations you will learn and practice will be closely supervised with instructor guidance on the techniques and body mechanics:

  • Lower back myofascial release
  • Mobilizations for the lower back
  • Fists down erectors
  • Deep longitudinal stripping of the erector spinae and quadratus lumborum
  • Quadratus lumborum trigger point deactivation
  • Lamina groove deep longitudinal stripping
  • Quadratus lumborum – pin and stretch in side-lying position
  • Quadratus lumborum – active-assisted stretch
  • Iliopsoas – active-assisted stretch

For many therapists this will be the first time to really have a thorough set of powerful techniques to dramatically help people with low back pain.

Add this important, essential and valuable new skill level to your work!
