Cheryl treats using manual therapy and dry needling techniques with emphasis on the body as a whole. Her treatment approach offers a comprehensive treatment to patients of all disciplines and moves beyond the symptoms to identify the barrier that limits motion and causes dysfunction. Ms. Hancock works with the design and implementation of strength and conditioning programs as well as core stabilization and activation. She has designed training videos that focus on proper mechanics and muscle activation utilized by the uprising athlete to the professional. Cheryl is the owner of Core Physical Therapy, an outpatient orthopedic clinic in Danville, Va.

Course Description
The greatest strength of this class is its ability to simplify a seemingly complex region of the body and give the clinician a set of tools to use with confidence on Monday morning. This class is evidence based and demonstrates both theoretically and with specific case examples how the pelvis contributes to low back pain in patients. A unique aspect of this course is how it clarifies often ambiguous treatments with the pelvis; giving both new and seasoned clinicians a more comprehensive way of treating the pelvis.

As with all of our manual therapy courses, this seminar will follow a progression of principles and reinforce them throughout the 16 hours, is at least 75% hands-on lab, and will give the clinician hands-on skills they use immediately upon their return to the clinical setting.

At the completion of this seminar, the participant will be able to:

  • Understand the rationale for sacroiliac mobilization and be able to perform a sacroiliac evaluation to determine dysfunction
  • Correctly perform multiple movement dysfunction tests to ascertain the side of dysfunction
  • Demonstrate the ability to correctly palpate the landmarks of the pelvis to ascertain the type of dysfunction present in the pelvic girdle
  • Demonstrate the ability to follow the correct order of treatment in the pelvis to best correct dysfunction
  • Demonstrate correct application of specific mobilizations
