Spinal Manipulation (Grade V) - level 2

This one-day course provides the opportunity to extend skills learnt in our two-day course. You will learn additional techniques for the spine, plus techniques for the sacro-iliac and costovertebral joints. An update on manipulation principles and screening issues is discussed. Case studies are used to illustrate selection of techniques and develop your clinical reasoning. The latest evidence supporting manipulative techniques in the treatment of the spinal dysfunction is presented. The number of participants has been limited to 12 to ensure a high level of supervision.
