Course Description

This 2 day seminar includes ~70% hands-on lab and ~30% didactic components. The majority of the course is spent learning examination and mobilization techniques of the extremity joint complexes, including: hip, knee, ankle/foot, shoulder girdle, elbow, wrist, hand. Extensive lab practice time is dedicated to learning HVLA mobilizations, which is the primary focus of the course. There is also a review of current evidence and a live case study. In addition, supplemental video content for this course featuring all exercise techniques taught is also included.

Learning Objectives

  • The participant will identify the history of thrust mobilization, current APTA policy, differences with non thrust techniques, and the evidence available for techniques taught
  • The participant will identify specific differential diagnoses that would lead to precautions and contraindications of HVLA techniques
  • The participant will demonstrate subjective history questions that would indicate the potential for differential diagnoses that would contraindicate HVLA
  • The participant will identify clinical presentations , such as specific dysfunctions/pathologies, and when to apply the HVLA techniques
  • The participant will demonstrate how to appropriately perform HVLA techniques on a lab partner, for multiple spinal joint regions
