Course Description

No travel expenses | $149 per therapist

This one day seminar combines an evidence-based, didactic lecture
instruction, with intensive hands-on lab training in cervical, thoracic and
lumbosacral high-velocity low-amplitude (HVLA) spinal thrust
manipulation (STM), and how to apply those techniques in a safe and
competent manner. These introductory techniques serve to facilitate
neurophysiological and mechanical effects for patients experiencing
musculoskeletal dysfunction of the spine. The student will learn useful
techniques to implement immediately on patients the next day. The
seminar covers a significant amount of peer-reviewed literature reviews, video demonstration, and
peer feedback allowing basic technique mastery. Emphasis will be placed on patient and clinician
safety. This course will also give therapists references to engage in meaningful conversation with
fellow clinicians, physicians, clients, and prospective patients regarding the efficacy and safety of
these techniques.

Learning Objectives
1. Articulate current evidence regarding high-velocity low-amplitude thrust manipulation in
neuromusculoskeletal dysfunction.
2. Encourage sound clinical reasoning as it relates to the use (or non-use) of high-velocity low-amplitude
thrust techniques.
