Management of Common Clinical Syndromes with Spinal Manipulation


Instructor: Dr. Jeff Moore, PT, DPT, OCS, MTC, Cert-SMT, FAAOMPT

Course Description: This course will cover current best evidence in the use of thrust manipulation to treat common clinical syndromes. Laboratory sessions will focus on the safe and effective delivery of thrust and non thrust mobilizations to the lumbar spine, sacroiliac joint, thoracic spine, and cervical spine. Mobility and motor control exercises for the cervicothoracic and lumbar spine will be introduced to complement the manual therapy techniques. Lecture material will focus on the developing body of literature regarding the use of mobilization with commonly treated patient presentations. These presentations include but are not limited to: Cervicogenic Headache, acute and chronic neck pain, non-radicular mechanical low back pain, and sacroiliac joint dysfunction. Additional lecture will cover clinical reasoning and how mobilization fits within the greater framework of evidence based treatment. Finally the role of manipulative therapy for chronic low back pain will be explored in light of emerging evidence from the field of pain sciences.
