Orthopedic Massage Approaches to Lumbo-Pelvic Pain » Structural Issues in the Spine

Instructor: Whitney Lowe

Structural Issues in the Spine

This course is the sixth and final course in a six part series on lumbo-pelvic pain. The primary focus of this client case will be on structural issues in the spine that include spondylolisthesis, spondylolysis, and facet joint irritation. These problems can be challenging to identify and may frequently benefit from referral to other health professionals so it is important that the massage therapist be able to accurately identify when they are present.

In each of the courses we will take a specific case study, and go through the process of assessment to demonstrate how we would identify this client?s complaint in a real clinical environment. After identifying the primary cause of the complaint Whitney will discuss and demonstrate appropriate treatment strategies for this type of disorder.

This design of the courses in a case study format enables us to look at realistic clinical signs and symptoms and apply them for creating the optimal treatment approach. Whitney will use rich multimedia examples and interact with participants as much as possible during the presentation.
