SPINAL MANUAL THERAPY 5-day intensive  

Manual Therapy Courses

This 5-day course covers the essential elements of manual therapy from upper cervical down to the lumbar spine. The course comprises an integrated manual therapy approach to the treatment of back and neck pain. Examination and treatment encompasses the articular, neural, and motor systems. Relevant background theory is covered, but the emphasis is on practical sessions. The content draws on work by many key manual therapists including Maitland, Mulligan, Elvey, Jull and O'Sullivan. Brian Edwards' concept of combined movement examination and treatment is an important component of this course. The safe and effective application of high velocity thrust techniques is also covered. Case studies are used to develop clinical reasoning and illustrate common clinical conditions. The evidence informing clinical practice is highlighted throughout the course. The number of participants is limited to 12 to ensure a high level of practical supervision.
