Are you treating patients with Sacroiliac Joint pain? Herman & Wallace's offers a Home Exercise Manual for Patients with Sacroiliac/Low Back Pain

This two-day course will present a reference- based, clinically applicable approach to the evaluation and treatment of the sacroiliac joint and pelvic ring.
The course will cover the direct and indirect anatomy that influences the sacroiliac joint, and provide a means of deducing the source of pain and dysfunction. Direct treatment of symptoms and techniques for symptom amelioration will be presented.


During lecture and laboratory sessions, participants will have the opportunity to practice two different SIJ tests; movement impairment vs. symptom reproduction. The participants will also analyze which spinal joints may be referring pain, and assess the role that sacral discs play in initiating and perpetuating pain. The information presented is immediately applicable to the clinicians’ patient population and the techniques presented will be able to be incorporated seamlessly into the participant’s clinical practice.
