Originally part of the Structural Series Part 2, now with more in-depth information and technique descriptions to enhance treatment outcomes
This course looks at the middle of the body, providing a wealth of practical assessments for pelvic asymmetry. It considers their causes and relationship to any dysfunction above and below the pelvis.
You will learn what movements the pelvis performs along with the corresponding changes in the spine, sacrum, legs, feet and ankles and, even into the cranium and TMJ.
You will add to your current MFR skills by learning essential and effective fascial techniques to de-rotate and balance the pelvis with orthopaedic pelvic positioning blocks. Having the skill and knowledge to balance the pelvis will provide a greater scope of treatment in all structures above and below.
