Extremity Integration into Spine and Pelvis (SEA) September 27-29th, 2019

Injuries to the extremities cause dysfunction that often contributes to significant functional limitations. These dysfunctions vary according to how the upper and lower extremities integrate into the spine. Rehabilitation professionals who properly apply manual therapy techniques and exercises give their patients the best opportunity to rehabilitate their injuries.


This two and a half day course will enable the participant to understand the role of manual therapy in rehabilitation of the upper and lower extremity and apply manual and exercise techniques appropriately. 


The course is designed as an interactive learning environment between the instructor and participants. As an optimal continuing education experience, the participants will be able to apply these techniques immediately when they return to the clinic.  Additionally, they will be able to use the anatomical, biomechanical, and neuromuscular basis to further develop their manual therapy skills.
