Objectives
At the completion of this seminar, the participant will be able to:
•Accurately explain the rationale for performing joint mobilization and its specific physiological effects
•Explain and correctly demonstrate grading, oscillation techniques and sustained-hold techniques of joint mobilizations

Description
There are few classes available where you will learn how to treat so many common extremity dysfunctions with so much success. This is a class that will change how you look at common extremity diagnoses and will help you to start treating differently on Monday morning. The focus of the class is using joint mobilization to normalize the stress on the tissues around a joint; immediately decreasing the stress on the tissues and secondary pain that this creates. This will take your understanding of extremity mobilization far beyond what you learned in school.
As with all of our manual therapy courses, this seminar will follow a progression of principles and reinforce them throughout the 16 hours, is at least 75% hands-on lab, and will give the clinician hands-on skills they use immediately upon their return to the clinical setting.
