The lumbo-pelvic-hip complex is responsible for transfer of forces through the body.  These forces tend to be greater in athletes due to high impact activities combined with maximizing strength through increased training loads.  This course is designed to identify tissue specific impairments through active and passive assessments.  Discussion will include applications of instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization to address neuromyofascial restrictions in the pelvic complex to reduce pain while improving function.  Additional applications will be discussed regarding improving stability of the sacroiliac joints when hypermobilities are present.
