This 2 day integrative medicine course is designed for the education of rehabilitation professionals and anyone who deals with patient populations with lumbopelvic dysfunction, including low back pain & sacroiliac dysfunction.
Over 16 million Americans practice yoga for its health benefits. Research supports yoga’s efficacy as a therapeutic modality, yet less than 6.5% of therapists are recommending or using it for their patients. In this course, you will learn a new therapeutic paradigm for evaluation and management of the lumbopelvic spine which provides immediate clinical application of medical therapeutic yoga for both patient and post-rehabilitation populations.
The course and its textbook equips the medical professional with the skills to use medical therapeutic yoga (breathing, postures, and psycho-emotional considerations) and Ayurvedic principles (medical science of yoga) for prevention and pathophysiological management. Using a systems approach evaluative model can help prevent injury and assist in shifting from a pathology based to a holistically based health care model. Learn how medical therapeutic yoga, applied with evidence based medicine, can optimize patient outcomes, maximize performance, and create effective spinal rehabilitation programs.
80% of Americans will experience low back pain at some point in their lives. This course enables you to empower patients, increase patient compliance, and expand services you can offer in your community.
