Upper Body Sources of Low Back Pain

Course Details

Non-traumatic, chronic back pain often is often caused by issues upstream to the low back. When clients have chronic low back pain, finding and treating contributing structures from the upper body can be the key to effect full resolution.

Learn dynamic assessments and treatments for relationships of the following structures to low back pain, including: organs, bones, joints, and myofascia of the torso, upper extremities, neck and head. By the end of class students will be able to confidently assess and treat non-local structures contributing to stubborn, non-abating low back pain.

Note:  This class is a sister class to “Finding the Source of Low Back Pain”, but is all new material.
