OMM for the Thoracic and Lumbar Spine, and Ribs
Five OMM Techniques Covered:

*   Muscle Energy
*   High Velocity Low Amplitude
*   Strain-Counterstrain
*   The Still Technique
*   Soft Tissue Technique

Comments from previous course evaluations:

  • I can’t wait to start using the techniques I learned through this course.
  • I feel that I now have a higher focus on detailed exam.
  • I plan to implement more of the strategies for examination that were reviewed.
  • Many of my patients are almost all elderly, I found this course to be filled with useful techniques that I plan trying on them.
  • I will use what I learned in sports medicine practice. The muscle energy was especially helpful.
  • I now have a more complete understanding of basic concepts (direct, indirect, active, passive technique) Definitely plan on using the Still Technique!
