Retraining lumbo-pelvic stability in patients with back pain is often difficult due to the severity and complexity of their symptoms. Postural habits, poor movement control, and altered timing of muscle recruitment can perpetuate pain and difficulty regaining functional stability. Rehabilitation is therefore complex and requires an understanding of the changes that occur in a patients body and mind due to pain, and requires the correct tools to retrain them towards optimal movement and stability.

Barb and Jay are back in 2021 to run this highly practical 1 day course that reviews anatomy & biomechanics, and the science of motor control retraining in order to create a framework for assessment of lumbo-pelvic stability and motor control. It then provides a practical framework to address your patients dysfunction and determine how to release and turn off overactive muscles in the low back, pelvis, and hips. You will learn how to unwind overactive muscles in 3D and practice ways to assist this at home. We then focus onretraining postural awareness, and improve your patients understanding of their movement patterns and pain so that they can be actively involved in their rehabilitation. Retraining core stability and gluteal muscle activation is then integrated into a progressive rehabilitation program that aims to improve functional capacity and stability.
