FOUNDATIONS IN MANUAL THERAPY: THE LOWER BODY
Discover a patient-centred model of evaluation and intervention that can be applied across the spectrum of manual therapy, massage, and exercise-based interventions.
Based on current understandings of biopsychosocial impacts and using a well-defined Feedback Loop The Foundation Approach will provide a model for treatment of pain and related dysfunction.
While the work is presented from a dry, static type of manual therapy perspective, often represented as an MFR-style of engagement, time will be spent exploring its uses in other modality styles.

Covering the lower body, from the lumbar and pelvic region, through the hips, and out into the legs and feet, the Foundations in Manual Therapy: The Lower Body begins at the core, teaching you a simple but very effective means of connecting your findings with your client’s pain or dysfunction. Based on current understandings of biopsychosocial impacts and using a well-defined Feedback Loop, the Foundations Approach makes treatment of pain and related dysfunctions quite simple. Rather than relying on the therapist’s perception of pathology, which tends to be based on their training rather than an acceptable medical understanding of pain and movement dysfunction, the Foundations Approach chooses to rely strongly on patient feedback and shared decision-making, allowing that to guide and direct care. The Foundations Approach is less about learning diagnosis-specific technique protocols or tissue-specific models, but rather introduces a model that can be applied to any diagnosis/area. As an added value, this model of shared decision-making can be applied to nearly every style of manual therapy and exercise-based intervention.
