      Visceral Manipulation I: Pelvic Structures is a continuing education class for manual practitioners who want to improve their current skills in palpation and manual manipulation and expand their knowledge and understanding of the structures of the pelvis. This class will focus on visceral mobility of organs, fascias, nerves, ligaments and capsules of pelvic visceral structures to allow for appropriate movement patterns. 


     Restricted pelvic structures can cause decreased mobility and musculoskeletal dysfunction to include pain, loss of function / neuromuscular co-ordination, and weakness in various biomechanical structures that interact with the pelvic viscera such as the cervical, thoracic, and lumbar spine, the pelvis, hips, and knees.  This class is concerned with the assessment and return to mobility of the viscera of the pelvis from a biomechanical, neurological, and neurohormonal standpoint and that interaction with other organs, the pelvis, and body as a whole including reflexes and adaptive patterns.

Learning Objectives: Upon course completion, the participant will be able to-

1) Identify, palpate and test the mobility of the pelvic viscera to include joints, capsules / peritoneum, muscles, fascia, blood vessels, lymphatic tissue, and meso-attachments.

2) Ask appropriate patient history questions that take into account new, research-based understanding of pelvic visceral function;

3) Demonstrate various treatment strategies such as Fascial Release, Counterstrain-positional release, Neurolymphatic and Neurovascular Techniques, and NeuroDynamic Reintegration© (NDR©).


5) Perform appropriate Global and Regional provocation tests for the lumbopelvis and pelvic viscera.


6) Apply a specific Home Exercise / Self-Treatment Program based on objectively assessed neuromuscular imbalance and somatic dysfunction.

Target audience: Licensed healthcare providers including, but not limited to:

PT, AT, DC, MT, RN, OT, LMT, and ND.

BOC Essential Level

18 contact hours – 18 1-A hours anticipated  


Instructors: Neal O'Neal, PT and Dennis Eaton, MPT

Class is held 9-5 Friday and Saturday, 8-12 Sunday.


Fees: $650/student, associates of Autumn Mayberry may utilize a discount code found HERE .  Course limited to 12 students.


Materials Provided: A binder of the course materials will be provided to each student to follow along and take notes during the lecture and lab portions of the class.

Purpose: The purpose of this class is to provide the clinical practitioner with the knowledge of how recent research has changed current clinical treatment approaches to the pelvic viscera and the role of mobility of the viscera in biomechanical, neurological, and neurohormonal signalling.. 

Expected outcomes are to develop effective delineation and treatment strategies based upon an integration of new information and the extensive body of knowledge of the anatomy, physiology, and embryology of the pelvic viscera. This class will enhance participant learning through the use of discussion, audio-visual materials, recent research evidence, and extensive lab-based learning.
