33340:METHODS 4: LUMBOPELVIC MANUAL THERAPIES

Introduction to applied adjustive procedures using high-velocity, low-amplitude thrusts to lumbar and pelvic regions; continued development of same in the cervical and thoracic regions. Methods derived from various technique systems (e.g. Gonstead, Thompson, Faye, Diversified) are practiced under direct supervision after PARTS evaluation has identified segments for which adjustments are indicated. Provide the student with an introduction to high velocity, low amplitude thrust techniques for the lumbar spine and pelvis. Emphasis is on the development of the psychomotor skills necessary to safely apply the techniques to dysfunctional joints.
