Clinical Massage Strategies:  Functional Assessment and Treatment of the Pelvic Girdle (14 CE)

Presenters:  Sarah DeBerardinis, Beverly Johnson (Integrity Trainings)

 

Class Description

Functional assessment allows a practitioner to make sound decisions about how, or if, a client should be treated. It is a process of gathering information, providing more data to use in clinical thinking and problem solving that results in quicker, more effective ways to help your clients. Detailed functional assessment is a critical tool in understanding a client’s pain and discomfort, identifying contraindicated conditions, and determining whether massage is appropriate.
Improve your clinical skills by developing competence in testing and treating musculoskeletal dysfunction of the pelvic girdle. In this workshop, you will learn a systematic approach that will help you develop the most effective treatment plans. We will cover the anatomy and kinesiology of the region, basic range of motion and Manual Resistive Testing, anatomically specific massage techniques, and clinical reasoning skills. This material provides a useful introduction to clinical massage strategies and deepens proficiency for therapists of all skill levels. It will enable you to help your clients with a wide range of musculoskeletal problems, and to work more efficiently to achieve greater results.
