Course Description

Course Information
The ART Upper Extremity Course is designed to identify and effectively treat common issues such as carpal tunnel, tennis elbow and shoulder injuries. Although it also includes some spine issues where muscles overlap the two regions, protocols from the ART Spine Course may be necessary to help fully resolve the injury. Manual techniques are utilized to move the tissues and joints while under tension. The system allows for relative motion between the tissues and articulations. Evaluation and treatment occur simultaneously.

The course emphasizes the manipulation of the neuro-musculoskeletal system to diagnose and correct alterations in tissue texture, tension, movement and function.

This 3.5-day course consists of 107 protocols including peripheral nerve entrapments. Registration for this course includes a personalized 440-page bound study manual and 1 instructional DVD. Please allow 3-6 business days for shipment.
