# 147 Evaluation and Management of the Lumbar/SIJ/Hip Complex
Differentiation of the source of pain in the lumbo-pelvic region is a common clinical challenge. This course will provide the participant with the tools required to determine the most likely source of their patient’s pain. An integrated approach utilizing the concepts of Cyriax, Maitland, Kaltenborn, and Evjenth, in combination with current best evidence-based practice as described in the literature, will be utilized to form the foundation of an effective treatment approach. Participants will gain a working knowledge of evaluation via selective tissue tension, provocation-alleviation testing, and joint mobility assessment. A strong emphasis will be placed on the clinical reasoning and patient management skills required to translate examination findings into effective treatments, and will include a thorough overview of the use of joint mobilization, traction, patient education, and various modes of exercise as treatments. This course will be lab-intensive due to the nature of the material presented, and will also include lecture and demonstration components.
