Thrust Manipulation 1 (Houston, TX)


Thrust Manipulation 1 (Houston, TX)

Course Description


This course focuses on enhancing the participant’s background knowledge, clinical reasoning process, and technical skill set related to the use of high velocity low amplitude (HVLA) thrust manipulation techniques in the management of patients with spinal or lower extremity impairments. Participants can expect to become proficient with common manipulative techniques directed to the lower extremity joints and with basic and intermediate techniques directed to the cervical, lumbar, and thoracic spinal regions. Furthermore, evidence based approaches and reasoning related to the appropriate use of spinal manipulation will be emphasized.

  • Critically appraise the literature regarding evidence for thrust manipulation of the cervical spine, thoracic spine, lumbar spine, and joints of the lower extremity.
  • Summarize the available body of evidence for thrust manipulation of the cervical spine, thoracic spine, lumbar spine, and joints of the lower extremity.
  • Describe precautions and contraindications to thrust manipulation.
  • Analyze a patient scenario and make a determination of whether thrust manipulation may be of benefit.
  • Educate patients and colleagues and the role of thrust manipulation in the treatment of cervical spine, thoracic spine, lumbar spine, and lower extremity disorders.
  • Summarize APTA and AAOMPT positions on thrust manipulation.
  • Demonstrate thrust manipulation techniques directed to the cervical spine, thoracic spine, lumbar spine, and joints of the lower extremity in a safe and proficient manner.
  • Formulate a plan for appropriate integration of thrust manipulation given a patient case scenario.
  • Design a comprehensive treatment plan – including incorporation of thrust manipulation and appropriate matching exercise – given a patient case scenario.
  • Evaluate the success of a thrust manipulation technique was successful utilizing the patient response model, and modify treatment as indicated.
  • Articulate legal and ethical issues related to thrust manipulation.
