Course Description

This study group will address one of the most common causes for lower back pain: A weak superficial back line. 

Many people believe that weak abdominals are the cause of lower back pain. Although this can be true, a more common cause is inhibition of the posterior chain muscles. When these muscles are inhibited, the multifidi and glutes don’t fire efficiently and the spine loses stability. 

Today we will examine the causes of lower back pain while providing concrete examples for assessment of the L5-S1 vertebra. Movement corrections based off of teaching a proper hip hinge will be taught for all the dysfunctions we find. This approach to treating lower back pain will become a foundation of your practice and staple treatment in your clinic.
