The Unstable Pelvis, Level I course reviews the recent advances in neurofascial science regarding pelvic stability and presents applications for whole-body assessment, strategy and long-term treatment based on an integrated, applicable model. Using MELT reconnect, repattern and reintegration techniques and stabilization exercises, you will learn how to efficiently address common neurofascial dysfunction and improve chronic pattern pain within the pelvic girdle. 1-hour lunch is on your own.

Objective research has been in for some time: physiological responses to using the right machines not only improves strength, but also improves function!
