Postgraduate manipulations

Revised mid range spinal manipulations techniques by a female osteopath.

FICO LogoA postgraduate course specifically designed by and for women, with all the modifications that really work. You learn how to focus and position yourself and the patient, so you can thrust easily patients that are taller, bigger, stronger or heavier than yourself, with minimal effort. Men are also welcome.

The course is 100% practical and all session will be individual supervised, allowing every attendee to:

  • Make progress on their spinal manipulations skills, by improving patient’s positioning and own body use
  • Identify what could compromise the success of the technique and solve these elements
  • Maximise the use of the own body. In this way the the use of strength is reduced to a strict minimum and the focus can stay at only one vertebral level
  • Maintain a specific focus, from start to finish

Each technique will be demonstrated and explained, step by step. Followed by individually supervised practical session
