This two-day spinal manipulation course focuses on the safe and effective application of thrust manipulation to the spine. The latest research regarding the safety and efficacy of joint manipulation will be discussed as well as the evidence supporting the utilization of spinal manipulation for various dysfunctions of the spine.
Key areas of safety will be emphasized, including recognizing and ruling out the presence of red flags and contraindications, identifying any precautions to joint manipulation, and performance of thorough pre-manipulative screening.
Participants will learn a variety of high-velocity low-amplitude thrust manipulations of the cervical spine, cervicothoracic junction, thoracic spine, thoracolumbar junction, lumbar spine, lumbosacral junction, and sacroiliac joint. Ample lab time will be provided to allow participants to improve confidence and proficiency with techniques.
