The DonTigny Manual Therapy Approach

This presentation provides an extensive critical analysis of the pelvis and sacroiliac (SI) joints and the role that they play in low back pain. The strength of this course, however, is the demonstration on real patients of how to use a variety of techniques to get quick effective pain relief. In addition, there are interactive segments including a tutorial practice section and test your knowledge videos.

Numerous detailed illustrations will help the participant establish a sound anatomical and biomechanical rationale for the appropriate evaluation, testing and treatment of low back pain and pelvic pain with special emphasis on the sacroiliac joints.
