According to recent studies, over 20% of all low back pain episodes are due primarily to sacroiliac joint dysfunction. Furthermore, sacroiliac joint dysfunction is an attributable source in the vast majority of lower back pain episodes. Although the sacroiliac joint is relatively immobile in comparison the other joints in the body, such minimal amounts of shock absorbing torsional control play an essential role in the overall health of the spine, and key factors in the performance of the stabilising musculature throughout the spine, hips and pelvis.
By returning the muscular balance and strength to the dynamic stabilising structures around the SI joint, not only can we, as clinicians, have a significant impact on lower back pain, but also on related structures through the kinetic chain such as ITB problems, patellofemoral pain, tibial shin splints, foot pain, pronation/supination issues and upper spinal issues.
This course shall provide you with the essential tools to help you stand out from your peers by allowing a clinically oriented, evidence-based structural approach to the assessment and treatment of SI joint disorders and also SI joint related disorders/
-Discuss and review anatomical and functional anatomy of the sacroiliac joint, and relate this to the biomechanical and pathomechanical problems that commonly arise in the clinical setting.
-Enhance the participants' assessment skills, and learn valuable tips of visual and tactile symptoms of SI joint dysfunction.
-Enhance the participants range of treatment techniques that are valuable in the evidence based treatment of SI joint dysfunction and related pathologies.
-Effective clinical applications of a range of techniques such as soft tissue techniques, muscle energy techniques and muscular rehabilitation for long term treatment of SI joint dysfunction.
-Recognise the contribution of the SI joint to other pathomechanical issues throughout the body.
