Demystifying the SIJ & Pelvis

$599.00 $549.00

Over the 2days participants will have the opportunity to explore the biomechanics and fundamentals of pelvic stability responsible for optimal function of the SIJ and pelvic region. The course is designed around the small group learning experience so that you can benefit from the individual attention.

The course material is underpinned by current knowledge of the anatomy and biomechanics and provides an evidence approach to treating SIJ dysfunction that will challenge previously acquired misconceptions about the cause of SIJ dysfunction and ultimately lumbo-pelvic pain.

Product Description

Why another SIJ and pelvic course?

Over the past 15 years there has been a continued interest and research into this often complex region however there are still many unanswered questions regarding the fundamental function and role of the SIJ. There is an ongoing debate on what if any role the SIJ plays in the cause of low back pain as well as continued controversy about how best to treat SIJ or pelvic problems.

Taso has been running his SIJ series of courses since 2010 and presents a comprehensive 2 day course aimed at enhancing your understanding of this key region of the body.

What is the overall aim of this particular?

The aim of a small group learning environment is to provide manual therapists with the opportunity to grasp the fundamentals and improve your understanding of the pelvis. During this course you will have the opportunity to enhance both your clinical assessment skills and acquire the practical treatment techniques that will enhance your approach to treating pelvic and SIJ related problems.

The pelvis and the SIJ continue to present us with numerous challenges; a sound knowledge of the anatomy, biomechanics and principles of pelvic stability is needed for effective assessment and treatment of these often but complex problems.

Who will benefit most from attending this course?

This course is suitable for those manual therapists who may be unfamiliar with the SIJ or the pelvis as a source of lumbo-pelvic dysfunction but also for those physiotherpists who would like a deeper understanding of the SIJ and how to further their clinical skills. This course will begin with the basics of the pelvis and SIJ but move beyond the fundamentals by presenting a clear and concise approach to identifying and addressing SIJ specific dysfunction.

Learning objectives/outcomes

Over the 2days participants will have the opportunity to explore the biomechanics and the key fundamentals of pelvic stability responsible for optimal function of the SIJ and pelvic region. The biomechanics will be explored with respect to functional testing of the SIJ & pelvis and then be applied to treatment intervention.

By the end of the course participants will:

  • Have an improved understanding of pelvic function & stability
  • Be able to perform a functional assessment of the pelvis & SIJ
  • Apply Muscle Energy Technique & Myofascial Release in an integrated approach to correcting pelvic & SIJ dysfunction
  • Have an appreciation of the wider myofascial system and how this integrates into whole body function and the key role of the pelvis

Key features of this course:         Structure is everything, without structure there can be no function

  1. To assess the ability of the SIJ in achieving its closed packed position. In other words whether optimal or non-optimal stability is taking place
  2. To explain pelvic stability according to the validated Form and Force closure of pelvic stability
  3. Pelvic-SIJ imbalances are influenced by myofascial components which have a distinct implication for joint integrity and the ability of the SIJ to achieve its stability position
  4. Altered proprioception may be at the root-cause of SIJ dysfunction
  5. Treatment is directed towards the ‘dysfunction’ by a combination of Myofascial Release techniques and Muscle Energy Technique in order to restore appropriate muscle activation and recruitment patterns
  6. Restoring or normalizing the passive articular glide of the SIJ is at the heart of the proposed treatment model, without specifically biasing either the muscular or joint components of the dysfunction

The presenter:

tasoTaso Lambridis is the Clinical Director of Spinal Synergy Physiotherapy, a private practice in Sydney that focuses primarily on treating spine related problems and with a distinct interest in treating SIJ dysfunction and lumbo-pelvic pain. He has more than 20 years of clinical experience treating a variety of musculoskeletal & sporting injuries but with a special interest in the SIJ which he has been studying for most of his professional career. He has had a great opportunity to work with well renowned & recognised clinicians in the field both in The United Kingdom as well as in Australia, has attended numerous international conferences and he has been teaching his course since 2010 and has also presented on the pelvis and sacro-iliac joints at Physiotherapy conferences.

Taso has extensive experience in treating sporting injuries and while in the UK he completed a Masters in Sports Medicine & also worked in a number of Sports Clinic treating both elite & recreational athletes. His interest in the SIJ came about by having to treat repeat hamstring and groin injuries but also treating athletes presenting with low back pain that were simply not responding to the more standard Physiotherapy treatment methods. Over time he came to realise the importance of the pelvic to overall body function.
