Mastering HVLA Manipulation: Application in a Busy Osteopathic Practice
Aug. 10-12, 2018 • The Pyramids • Indianapolis
Direct method high-velocity, low-amplitude (HVLA) techniques can be extremely effective, efficient, long-lasting and gentle manipulative procedures. The HVLA techniques presented in this course will address representative dysfunction in all areas of the body from foot to occiput; will embrace care delivered in a wide range of body positions (supine, prone, seated and lateral recumbent); and will address many common clinical conditions associated with pain and dysfunction.
Techniques will be taught in the context of implementing postural-biomechanical or respiratory-circulatory clinical healthcare model goals in order to quickly impact common clinical conditions including headache, back pain, chest pain, and limb dysfunction. This method is designed to provide a logical context for later office use and for understanding indications and contraindications.
24 credits of AOA Category 1-A CME anticipated.
Fascial Distortion Model: Treating the Shoulder, Ankle and Knee
Nov. 30-Dec. 2, 2018 • The Pyramids • Indianapolis
Sometimes referred to as Module 1, this introductory course is an excellent starting point on the journey of learning the fascial distortion model (FDM). FDM is an excellent modality to be used in the clinic, on the field, and in the emergency room for fast and effective results.
While there are some specific FDM techniques, emphasis will be placed on thinking and working in the model while using all manipulative modalities.
Attendees will be introduced to the theory of FDM while focusing on the shoulder, ankle and knee regions. Learn how FDM expands the toolbox you use to help more patients. This modality is valuable for any practitioner and no previous manipulation experience is required.
All medical providers are invited to attend, including DOs, MDs, PTs, OTs, PAs, NPs, DPMs, etc.
20 credits of AOA Category 1-A CME anticipated.
