This course introductions the students to two mechanically assisted adjustive techniques for the cervical, thoracic, lumbar and pelvic regions. Mechanically assisted extremity techniques will be briefly discussed. Flexion Distraction will be based on the work of Dr. James Cox with a focus on the evaluation, diagnosis and treatment of facet Syndrome, intervertebral disc herniation, and Spondylolisthesis. In addition, the use of stationary flexion or extension pre-stress will be introduced for the adjusting of the cervical and thoracic regions and molding as a treatment for Scoliosis. Drop piece use will be based on the work of Dr. J. Clay Thompson with a focus on sacral subluxation (prone and supine), ilium subluxation (prone and supine), facet syndrome, cervical, thoracic and extremity subluxations.
