This course covers the pelvis, sacrum and lumbar spine. Specifically, this course includes corrections for a pelvis upslip, downslip, rotations, inflair and outflair and pubic bone dysfunctions. It also covers Sacral rotations, and unilateral flexion/extension dysfunctions. The lumbar section covers one or multiple vertebrae stuck in flexion or extensions. In addition to all this, there is also a section on using muscle energy to balance and relax all the muscles surrounding the hips.

This two-day course involves a mix of theory, demonstration and hands on practice. Actual evaluation and treatments will be performed by each participant using the methods learned.  Plenty of time is allotted for hands on practice as well as questions and discussion.
