Course Description

Course Synopsis

Diagnosis and treatment is made simple through understanding the biomechanical functions of each joint. Clinical findings are discussed and demonstrated in this intensive hands-on seminar. Many mysterious pains in the shoulder and thorax are discovered in class with procedures you can perform on your patients. Learn how taking a deep breath can be made easy. Explore techniques for anterior chest discomfort. Get rid of false angina pains. Learn why chronic cervical mechanical pain may be a result of T.M.J. or rib mechanical dysfunction.
