Many of the injuries we treat are chronic overuse injuries. Often, these develop due to altered biomechanics at both local and global levels. The longer time between the original injury and beginning treatment, the more distal to the original injury site the symptoms may produce. In patients with chronic conditions or ‘slow responders’, the area being treated may be compensating for dysfunction elsewhere in the body. This 1-hour course is designed to illustrate how sacroiliac joint dysfunction can create compensatory mechanisms in other regions of the body.
