Whether standing or sitting, we use the lower body continuously throughout each day. Pain and misalignment in the lower back, pelvis, legs and feet therefore have significant impact on the entire body. With the in-depth knowledge of myoskeletal anatomy and function delivered in this package, massage therapists are able to approach their work with a new level of expertise. Rather than treating superficial problem areas, the video here teaches how to pinpoint underlying compensatory kinks that initiate the pain-spasm-pain cycle, as well as to create a protocol for resolving the problem.
Using techniques such as deep tissue, joint stretching and myofascial mobilization, bodywork therapists can better treat plantar fasciitis, runner’s knee, sciatica, functional scoliosis, shin splints, and referred pain from lower back spasticity.
