Active Isolated Stretching (AIS) Intro to Clinical Application
In this 2-hour CE lecture, we will be focusing on the muscles of the hip girdle and how they relate to lower back pain. You will learn the principles of AIS as developed by Aaron Mattes. We will review muscle function and how to reach the deepest tissues of the body with less discomfort to your client.
