Manual therapy techniques comprise a continuum of skilled passive movements to the joints and/or related soft tissue that are applied at various speeds and amplitudes. This course emphasizes manipulation, an accurately localized or globally applied single, quick, and decisive movement of small amplitude/high velocity, following careful positioning of the patient.
We will first provide a legal review, practice standards, and definitions for manipulation. An overview of manipulations background, effects, evidence, benefits, indications and contraindications will be discussed. The majority of the course will then consist of lab. We will demonstrate and practice a variety of techniques for the cervical (upper, mid, and cervicothoracic), thoracic, and lumbar spine.
This course does not have any prereading materials.
