Franklin, TN (PRWEB) August 29, 2013

This physical therapy continuing education course online provides detailed description of SI Joint physical examination testing, including how to rule out the lumbar spine and hip joint as potential pain generators. The DVD/Online Content and supplemental written material provide the clinician with great detail on how to perform examination of the SI joint/pelvic girdle, the tests to implement, what patients they should be performed on, what entails a positive (or negative test), and the diagnostic accuracy of such tests. Another great feature of this DVD and written material is the interventions shown and described. The clinician can clearly see how to perform manual therapy, stretching, and strengthening techniques as they apply to the SI joint/pelvic girdle pain patient. Detailed information regarding proper set-up, hand placement, technique, re-assessment, and EMG values (exercises) are given in order for the clinician to make informed decisions on which interventions are most clinically applicable in their various types of patients.
