This course explores a comprehensive approach to joints, integrating all aspects of the joint including the nerve, artery, bone, capsule, and ligaments, as well as visceral and emotional connections. Typical pain patterns that arise from dysfunction of the spine and pelvis, how they relate to the nerves, vascular system, viscera, muscles, and connective tissue will be addressed in lecture and lab sessions. Determining the primary dysfunction, as well as the anatomical or physiological systems that are contributing to the dysfunction will be presented, as well as integration of these techniques into treatment sessions.
