Accreditation Check:
In this course by Dr. Alexis Wright, users will gain an understanding of SIJ and pelvic related pain patterns and be introduced to a number of components of SIJ and pelvis involvement. Learners will be introduced to the best forms of self reported outcomes measures and identify key components of patient history associated with specific pathologies of the SIJ and pelvis. Both sensitive and specific diagnostic tests will be reviewed and discussed to assist with differential diagnosis. A pelvis specific examination will be covered including active and passive physiological movements, and pain provocation tests. The learner will be introduced to evidence based information regarding the utility of a palpatory motion tests. Pelvic girdle pain and SIJ classifications will be discussed along with appropriate manual therapy, strengthening, and atypical treatment approaches. This course is part of a 19 course comprehensive clinical series covering examination and intervention for the cervical, thoracic, and lumbar spine, as well as the upper (shoulder, elbow, wrist, and hand) and lower (hip, pelvis, knee, foot, and ankle) quarters.
