Practical Application of Muscle Energy Techniques in Managing Common Neuromusculoskeletal Pathology of the Thoracolumbar Spine & Pelvis

Instructor: Dr. Phil Schaible, PT, DPT, OCS, FAAOMPT
This two-day seminar will focus on the evaluation and treatment of the lumbar spine and pelvis utilizing contract relax (muscle energy) techniques, as well as therapeutic exercise to support these manual interventions.  Emphasis will be placed on exposure to the osteopathic examination methodology of the lumbar spine and pelvis including relevant anatomy, as well as identification and treatment of somatic dysfunction.  This course is designed to establish a simple, biomechanical basis for spinal assessment that will guide your therapeutic interventions.  This course is appropriate for those new to muscle energy techniques as well as those who are interested in reviewing the basics.  Course work will emphasize clinical pearls learned by the instructor using these techniques over the last 23 years.  Emphasis will be placed on learning these basic applications very well.  Therapists who have completed the WPTA Orthopedic and Manual Therapy Professional Development Program will find this an excellent adjunct course that expands on the Osteopathic Model.
