Pelvic Balancing Pro 25/26 April 2024

Are you struggling to understand the current scientific evidence that suggests that low back, hip and pelvic pain do not always relate to pelvic imbalance and poor posture? - you are not alone.

Pelvic Balancing Pro is specifically designed to build your expertise in providing excellent hands-on care drawn from an evidence informed perspective.

This essential workshop is tailored for therapists who currently have myofascial soft tissue remedial skills. Delve into the nuanced relationship between the pelvis, hips, low back, and legs. Gain profound insights into movement and structure assessment, realising that perfection isn't paramount – asymmetry can coexist with comfort and poor posture does not always equal pain.

Discover effective techniques to alleviate aches and pains by addressing habitual body tension and faulty and adaptive movement patterns.

Empower yourself to bring tangible relief to your clients.

In this in-person workshop you will learn:

  • How to assess the anterior and posterior superior iliac spines
  • The relationship of other body structures with a pelvic imbalance
  • The difference between unilateral and bilateral pelvic rotation/tilts and how to treat them
  • What a structural verses a functional leg length discrepancy is
  • Why poor posture and pain don't always relate
  • Build confidence and competence in communicating current evidence on low back pain
  • MFR techniques for the low back and hips
  • MFR techniques for the anterior pelvis
  • How to use Pelvic Positioning Blocks to promote better function of the pelvis
  • How to adapt techniques in line with current evidence while remaining client focused
  • Receive and provide MFR to enhance learning.
  • Receive a comprehensive workshop technique manual.
