Despite our foundation in treatment with osteopathic manipulation, chronic low back pain still debilitates many of our patients. They often get vaguely labeled with "low-back pain", lumbago, chronic sciatica, or SI joint pain with limited lasting benefit from standard treatment regimens, yet they're non-surgical. What's next? Busy clinic days combined with patients' overlapping pain patterns from multiple pain generators only confound matters and make accurate and timely diagnosis difficult. This lecture helps shed light on quicker and more accurate diagnosis, osteopathic manipulation and exercise prescription to alleviate common biotensegrity dysfunction, and explore new and effective minimally invasive options should conservative care fail.

Upon completion of this presentation, participants will be able to:

  • Possess a better understanding of manual and interventional treatment options for chronic posterior pelvic girdle pain
  • Be able to differentiate chronic low back pain from posterior pelvic pain
  • Understand the etiology, patterns and treatment protocols for lumbar axial spine pain
  • Understand the etiology and patterns of posterior pelvic pain and the spectrum of conservative to invasive options available to them and their patients, including in-office osteopathic treatments, image-guided needle interventions, regenerative medicine, and minimally invasive surgical options for refractory cases.
