This course is designed to improve participants’ confidence in performing manual-based interventions and to provide an environment for all participants to receive constructive feedback to assure their manual skills are at the specialist level. Content in this course will primarily focus on thrust manipulation, mobilization and manual resisted exercises specific to the spine. Participants will apply best manual interventions while considering the patient presentation. Participants learn how to determine the risks and benefits of manual therapy and apply this evidence to clinical practice. The goal of this course is to develop manual therapists who are confident and are able to apply effortless manipulation for the patients they serve.
