The benefits of yoga for musculoskeletal injuries are well-known and evidence-based. Yet, as medical practitioners, we do not get this unique and effective knowledge in our traditional schooling. This course, written and taught by a 20-year experienced board-certified orthopedic doctor of physical therapy and a certified yoga instructor, has the aim of integrating the key therapeutic benefits of yoga that are not taught in non-yoga schools into the established framework of the medical practitioner.
This lab intensive manual therapy course presents the use of mechanical movements which lead to proper selection of Muscle Energy Techniques (MET), Soft Tissue Mobilization (STM), select joint mobilizations and home exercises to correct positional faults, muscular imbalance and hypo-mobility of the lumbar spine, pelvis and hip region.
