This course was designed to give the clinician a practical approach to advanced spinal mobilization and spinal manipulation. At the completion of this course, each participant should feel comfortable with advanced spinal techniques that they can begin using Monday morning. Course material will include an overview of anatomy, normal and abnormal biomechanics, evaluation of the spine, and techniques for advanced spinal mobilization and spinal manipulation. Clinicians will develop an understanding of when to choose a spinal mobilization versus a manipulation, and a proficiency in advanced spinal techniques.
As with all of our manual therapy courses, this seminar will follow a progression of principles that will be reinforced throughout the 16 hours. This course is at least 75% hands-on lab, and will give the clinician skills they can use immediately upon their return to the clinical setting.
This course is not open to PTAs per the American Physical Therapy Association's stance on performing mobilizations.
