For the first time in Pittsburgh, PA, Tasso Spanos, B.S., M.S. , C.M.P.T., certified Myofascial Trigger Point Release Therapist will present a three hour workshop on How to Relieve or Prevent Most Common Forms of Low Back Pain

Join us on Saturday, March 22, 2014 from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM at Schwartz Living Market! 
Cost for this amazing workshop is only $30.00 in advance or $35.00/person at the door!!!

This is a myofascial trigger point course offered as an alternative to surgical intervention, drugs or aggressive therapy. There are 9 different muscles that can contribute to various locations of pain in the lower back and sciatica pain. The focus will be on traumatized spots in the muscles called trigger points, which refer to pain or weakness to other parts of the body, thereby confusing clinicians who are not aware of their existence or complexity. Participants will be taught where the trigger points are located and how to treat and stretch them. Handouts will be provided.

He is a member of the American Academy of Pain Management, the American Society of Pain Educators, and the National Association of Myofascial Trigger Point Therapists. He has studied with Dr. Hans Kraus, Bonnie Prudden, Dr. David Simonds, and Dr. Janet Travell, White House Physician to President Kennedy. His many presentations include the American Academy of Pain Management, Cleveland Clinic, and many groups of MD's, DD's, RB's, PT's, OT's and massage therapists.

Mr. Spanos is the founder of the Pittsburgh School of Pain Management and was the director of the Center for Pain Treatment. He created the Feeling Better exercise video, contributed to the book, Clinical Mastery in the Treatment of Myofascial Pain, and has presented frequently to the  Pittsburgh Live Today show on SBSTV-KDKA Pittsburgh. He has led his stretch class, Feeling Better, since 1982 at Chataqua Institute and at St. Stephans Church in Sewickley, PA, Osher classes at Carnegie Mellon University, and Grass Roots Festival of Music and Dance.
