  • Rational for SCS

  • General rules for SCS

  • Cervical evaluation and treatment lab

  • Thoracic and Ribs evaluation and treatment lab

  • Lumbar evaluation and treatment lab

  • Pelvis and sacrum evaluation and treatment lab

  • Design a home program using SCS philosophy

Emphasis is placed on developing palpatory skills to enhance the students' effectiveness with the techniques. Will be explained how to evaluate all the major postural dysfunction of the rachis and treat the specific area so to release pain and achieve the lost mobility.

Will be explained the connection among the various spine area and the relation with the extremities. As well as ortho and parasympathetic relation among common pain syndromes. Will be taught how to evaluate and treat several ribs dysfunctions.

Upon completion of this course participants will be able to:

  • Understand the neuromuscular basis for SCS

  • Perform a full body SCS evaluation

  • Perform SCS treatment techniques for common joint dysfunction

  • Use the SCS documentation format

  • Design a home program using the SCS philosophy

More than 85 different techniques will be demonstrated.
