Astoria, New York (PRWEB) September 09, 2014
Back pain is one of the most common reasons patients seek out the help of a physical therapist. This pain can be brought about by injury, illness, disease or other condition causing a misalignment of the spine. It can be chronic, never letting up or diminishing. It can be a dull ache or a sharp pain. Back pain can affect the person’s ability to stand, bend or even sit up straight.
When a patient comes to a physical therapy clinic with back pain, it’s important to be able to quickly and correctly diagnose and treat the condition.
To this end, Hands-On Seminars is now offering a comprehensive course in high velocity, low amplitude (HVLA) spinal manipulation. This training will be available to health care providers in Woodstock, NY on October 18-19, 2014.
This course will provide an overview of pertinent safety issues regarding spinal manipulation in addition to evaluation and treatment techniques for the cervical, thoracic and lumbar spine. There will be ample practical sessions to develop and refine your manipulation techniques.
