SEMINAR 5
Connecting the Lower Limbs up into the Pelvis: What keeps a connection from lower limbs into the pelvis?

Assuring that lower limb functionally lasts a lifetime depends upon the neuro-musculo-skeletal integration to the rest of the body, particularly the pelvis. When the pelvic floor and core muscles are not working in concert with the lower limbs, due to injury or pelvic organ dysfunction, the natural harmony of movement in spacial relationship to gravity decompensates resulting in joint deterioration, organ malfunction and metabolic stasis. Assessment and treatment of the connection between the lower limbs and pelvis begins at birth until the elder years, often beginning and ending with imbalance and many injuries in between. Manual therapies can alleviate and treat the cause to ensure optimal movement for a lifetime.

The key learning highlights of this manual therapy seminar are:

  • Visual walking/gait analysis and the effects of gait on the entire body;
  • Palpation techniques of the muscles, bones, connective tissue and fascial areas of the legs, feet and connections into the pelvis;
  • Assessing condition for causative factors, including plantar fasciitis, knee dyskinesia, hip joint mobility, pelvis floor issues, recovering from injuries, imbalance issues and more; determining manual treatment and external application of therapies;
  • Assessment and treatment of issues arising from lower limb lymph drainage into the pelvis including bowel function, incontinence, swollen ankles, urogenital dysfunctions and more.
