Myoskeletal Alignment for Low Back Hip & Leg Pain
This impressive 6 DVD collection takes you to the heart of many chronic pain conditions. A perfect addition to any sports medicine; massage therapy, structural integration, physical therapy, and personal training or bodywork practice.
Over 6 hours of high definition video on 6 DVDs
Disk 1: Tuning the Spinal Engine with Myoskeletal Techniques.
A myoskeletal mechanic doesn’t just treat plantar fasciitis, bum knees, painful SI joints or functional scoliosis in isolation but searches for compensatory kinks that initiate pain-spasm-pain cycles.
- Assess and Treat Spiral Engine
- Forward Bending and Stork Tests
- Anatomical Landmarks
- Rib Spring Technique
- Groove Work
- Sacral Base Decompression
Disk 2: Fixing Kinetic Kinks
Myofascial and bony fixations along the kinetic chain soon manifest as strain or pain elsewhere. Follow Dalton through dozens of creative techniques to find and fix flat feet, knock-knees. Short legs and pelvic pain syndromes.
- Pelvic Assessments
- Ilium Spring Test
- Sacroiliac Spring Test
- SI Joint Mobility
Feet and Ankles: Assess and Treat
- Fascial Balancing Work
- Knees: Assess and Treat
- Assessing Tibial and Fibular Glide
- Ida Rolf’s “Log Roll”
- Patellofemoral Syndrome
Disk 3: Bone and Belly Work
Delve deeper into the body’s anti-gravity spring system to lift fallen arches, decompress adhesive hip capsules and stabilize misaligned pelvic bones. Learn unique compaction / traction, articular pumping and client assisted abdominal releases.
Pelvis and Abdomen
- Tigney’s Si Joint Routine
- Inflair / Outflare Dysfunction
- Belly Work
- Psoas Release
- Closing Stretches
- Upslip Correction
- Counter Rotate Torso & Pelvis
Feet and Ankles: Assess & Treat
- Foot & Ankle work
- Spindle Stimulating Technique
- Plantar Fasciitis
Disk 4: Sacroiliac Syndromes
Pelvic Girdle ligament must stretch to provide shock absorption for the spine. But injury and overuse can “jar or jam” articulating joint surfaces creating reflex psoas, QL and piriformis myospasm.
This video introduces alignment techniques to reduce ligament micro-treating and sciatic nerve
Knees & Hips
- Spindle-Stim Technique
- Piriformis & SI Joint Release
- Sacral Base Decompression
- Sacral Roll
- Lumbar Spring Test
Disk 5: Tuning the Core and Pelvic Floor
Human gait must have fluid rotary motion through the body’s core. Thus, pelvic floor damage resulting from child birthing, hysterectomies, a hooked coccyx, or other problems, jeopardizes gait efficiency and core stability. These lengthening and toning routines help you restore firing order, relieve dural drag and fuel spinal engine efficiency.
- Ankles and Knees
- Hip Abductors
Disk 6: Unlocking Lumbars
This series closes with problem solving of complex lumbo-pelvic disorders. Special spinal unwinding, articular springing and deep myofascial balancing maneuvers gently unlock chronic facet capsule fixations while restoring proper spinal curves. Myoskeletal Therapy complements all types of bodywork with practical strategies to alleviate reflex muscle guarding and joint blockage.
SI Joint and Spine: Assess and Treat
- Unilateral Flexed and Extended Sacrums
Sacroiliac and Low Back Routines
