Non-Surgical Strategies to Managing Low Back Pain
It's no secret that many people complain of low back pain. In fact, the National Institutes of Health states that millions of Americans spend at least $50 billion a year to alleviate the stress and discomfort in their low back. A common, yet enigmatic cause of this debilitating pain is the malalignment of the sacroiliac joint (SIJ). At first glance, however, many rehab professionals and even surgeons believe other back and hip injuries, such as facet-joint syndrome or a bulging disc, are the reasons for the pain. X-rays, MRIs, and even CT scans might show narrowing spinal discs or other possible factors producing the problem; yet these tests have minimal benefit because they oftentimes fail to show the exact source of the client's pain. The SIJ can mimic numerous hip and back dysfunctions; therefore, many Rehab professionals may misdiagnose the problem and intervention may be unsuccessful. In some cases, surgery is performed unnecessarily. In order to help restore and prevent future pain in patients, rehab professionals need the proper tools to accurately identify SIJD and to treat the condition conservatively.

In this one-day seminar, participants gain the tools to assess and treat patients with SIJD. Course instructor Kyndall Boyle, PT, PhD, OCS, PRC, with nearly 25 years of experience as a clinician and researcher, shares her findings with participants. Dr. Boyle offers the latest evidence in the field, along with rationale for conservative intervention for patients with SIJD. She discusses relevant anatomy and biomechanics including issues of bilateral and unilateral instability and postural asymmetry, as well as examines the relationship between SIJD, suboptimal respiration, posture, and motor control. Participants immediately take home the knowledge needed to assess and treat SIJD by examining a case study, case series, and a randomized controlled trial. Due to the interactive lab portion of the class, participants expand their hands-on skills by practicing therapeutic exercises to manage a client with right, left, or bilateral SIJD. Bring restoration back to your clients faster and more effectively with these tools and tips.

"I began working with Kyndall Boyle on reducing chronic back pain (right SIJ) I have experienced for 38 years. My pain diminished through my work with her, and then I reinjured my back in response to a long airplane trip. Kyndall brought me out of that severe pain through specific exercises. I am currently experiencing considerably less back pain than I have experienced since injuring my back originally. I am in less pain and my visits to her have decreased because my need for physical therapy has decreased. I am indebted to her for her commitment to my well-being and bringing me out of pain."
Geri Miller

 "After having been treated in the past by an athletic trainer and by another PT with some improvement, I found Dr. Boyle's interconnected approach to body 'mechanics' to be significantly more successful for aiding healing and for reforming my posture and body awareness for prevention of injuries. I highly recommend Dr. Boyle!"
Rodney Duke

 "I have had sacroiliac joint and hip pain for 20 years. I saw another PT for quite a while and still had the pain. I also saw a Chiropractor with very short lasting relief. After just a few treatments with Kyndy, I am pain free! I know the exercises she taught me really work because when my hip feels out of place I do them and then it is fine."
