PNMT for the Low Back and Thoracic Spine
Time & Location
About the Event
In the PNMT Low Back seminar, you will learn how to efficiently evaluate and treat people with various types of back pain involving the lumbar area. In order to accomplish this, you will learn to clearly identify the anatomical landmarks necessary for great palpation, identify and address the correct soft tissue structures that affect the stated pain pattern, and review how these soft tissue restrictions are tied to movement and everyday complaints. This seminar is designed to be a "hands on" experience and the style of therapy relevant to everyday practice; you can utilize the techniques taught in class immediately. At the same time, it will sharpen your anatomy skills and assist you in understanding spinal mechanics. We will address clinical applications, review the functional applications that soft tissue plays in back pain, and address common clinical concerns.
Thoracic pain is a very common reason people seek soft tissue therapy. There are many possible causes of pain in the thoracic area, many of them respond very well to precise manual treatment. The difference between success and failure is quite often the skill level of the therapist. Our goal is to help you attain the skill level needed to effectively problem solve your way through commonly presented pain syndromes of the mid-back.
