Course in English, translated into Polish.

The goals of the course:

The acquisition of practical skills and theoretical knowledge: to perform an osteopathic examination in order to find dysfunctions – to identify indications and contraindications for manipulation – for selection of appropriate components necessary to perform manipulation – to safely and effectively implement short-lever manipulation techniques on joints of the spine and peripheral joints – to select and use appropriate components to create a barrier for manipulation

HVLA are techniques of short lever joint manipulation based on the concept developed by prof. Laurie Hartman, PhD, DO (British School of Osteopathy, UK). HVLA techniques stand for High Velocity Low Amplitude and are used in Osteopathy, manual medicine and chiropractic.

This method is characterized by applying to the patient’s joint force of low amplitude and high speed using specific vectors, what most often ends with an audible “click” and reduction of muscle tone in the treated area.

Short-lever manipulations are subtle and precise techniques in which several components are used to build the barrier.

During the course, the instructor will guide you step by step through the process of learning techniques to make sure that you understand and master all of them to be able to properly and safely perform manipulations.

Tim provides a new insight into disk problems and lumbar spine mechanics. Finally he will teach you how to manipulate the cervical spine in a neutral position. It is unique approach that has never been shown before.
