Many clinicians lack a structured approach to treat dysfunctions involving the neck, shoulders and upper thoracic spine, while often overlooking rib cage involvement. This course will give you a strong foundation to treat these areas as well as an understanding of where to look next if you’re not getting the desired outcome with your spine patients.
We make a complicated region of the body simple to diagnose and treat, giving you a wide array of treatment approaches to choose from that best fit your patients’ needs. Techniques include Muscle Energy Technique (MET) and direct articulations to the cervical and thoracic spine and ribs. All course material is evidence-based and every technique is repeated multiple times until you feel comfortable and confident. When you leave this class, you’ll walk away with a straightforward, yet comprehensive foundation for treatment of the neck, upper back and ribs.
As with all our manual therapy courses, this course is at least 75% hands-on lab, and will give you skills you can use immediately upon returning to the clinic.
