Course Description

ART Spine Level 2 takes your soft tissue skills to the next level. In the ART Spine Lower 1 course, we taught how to treat contractures and adhesions in each individual spinal structure. Level Two provides evidence-based instruction to expand the attendees’ soft tissue skills by teaching how to identify and treat altered tissue texture, tension, function, and movement between adjacent structures of the head, neck, back, torso, and the structures surrounding the spinal column. When adjacent structures are adhesed, they restrict motion. This can result in pain, stiffness and decreased performance.

ART Spine Level 2 protocols treat these restrictions and restore proper relative motion between structures to improve patient outcomes. Throughout the seminar, attendees review the muscle and soft tissue surrounding the spinal column, and how to evaluate and appropriately treat the disorders using the ART Diagnostic Algorithm and 76 advanced manual protocols. Spine Level 2 techniques can be used to treat a broad list of dysfunctions, including chronic back pain, neck pain, headaches, movement restrictions, vertigo, concussion symptoms, and other soft-tissue dysfunctions.

ART seminars provide a hybrid learning model with online modules and in-person training. Included with registration is access to our learning management system, the ARTMan app, and a physical manual, which provide a thorough review of gross anatomy, the ART Diagnostic Algorithm, treatment methodology, and protocol instructions. Curriculum materials are designed to prepare attendees for in-person training where they will practice ART protocols on instructors and receive immediate feedback. Attendees have the best chance for successful completion of a seminar if they register for in-person training 4-6 weeks (about 1 and a half months) in advance, allowing for thorough comprehension of online modules and completion of the pre-credentialing exam.

Student-to-Instructor ratios are kept low to ensure individualized instruction and personalized feedback on skills. During the seminar, attendees work alongside instructors and other attendees to practice palpation and treatment protocols.

After completing the online modules and 24 hours of in-person training, attendees will demonstrate their skills through a practical exam to determine if they meet minimum requirements to use ART treatment in a clinical setting. Exam results are communicated to attendees 72 hours from last exam. As soon as attendees receive confirmation of certification, they may begin marketing themselves as an ART Certified Provider and helping their patients feel better faster with the Gold Standard in Soft-Tissue Care™.
