ConnectTherapy™ & The Pelvis
In this series of videos, Dr. Linda-Joy (LJ) Lee introduces some of the principles and techniques to assess and treat the pelvis in the context of the total body, whole person, ConnectTherapy™ model.
Painful or Pain-free dysfunction of the pelvis can be the underlying cause, or “Driver” for any number of problems throughout the body, including low back pain, recurrent groin injuries, knee pain and neck pain.
Over the first four videos, LJ introduces the whole body assessment framework of “Meaningful Task Analysis (MTA)” (Lee LJ 2008), and demonstrates the pelvis assessment techniques to rule-in or rule-out the pelvis as the Primary Driver for your client’s problem. This clinical reasoning process allows you to more effectively decide when to treat the pelvis, and when not to – creating more efficiency in your clinical practice and improving outcomes. LJ also demonstrates the connections between the pelvis & the thorax, the knee, and the foot-ankle complex.
In Videos 5 and 6, the ConnectTherapy Treatment Principles are briefly outlined, followed by demonstration of techniques to release specific muscles around the pelvis and restore optimal mobility, alignment, and create options for new strategies. This is the first step in treatment that facilitates the aims of treatment in ConnectTherapy: to change the client’s current non-optimal strategy and create options to teach and train new, more optimal strategies for the pelvis across multiple postures and tasks.
In Videos 7 and 8, LJ provides an overview of the 3 Phases of Treatment in the ConnectTherapy Model, and demonstrates assessment of the abdominal wall and back muscles in order to facilitate exercise prescription for Phase 1 training of new strategies for pelvis mobility and control.
These videos cover portions of the material and hands-on techniques that are taught on LJ’s face-to-face courses, which are available in Australia through www.ljlee.ca
