It is estimated that up to 84 percent of adults have low back pain at some time in their lives and many clinicians and patients are seeking nonpharmacologic treatments for pain management. Spinal manipulation is taught in medical schools for Osteopathic Physicians but for most medical doctors and nurse practitioners they have not been trained in these adjunctive procedures.
Empire Medical Training’s Spinal Manipulation Therapy Training is an evidence-based program created for all physician practices using an osteopathic approach for treatment for certain pain conditions unresponsive to conventional medical treatments. Empire’s hands-on spinal manipulation course focuses on the technical and practical hands-on skills required to successfully perform high-velocity low-amplitude (HVLA) spinal manipulation. The course emphasis is for treatment of lower back pain but will teach manipulation techniques for the following articulations; T10-L1 (thoracolumbar junction), L2-L5 and SI (sacroiliac) joint for acute and chronic lower back pain.
Empire has developed this course to enhance our other pain courses and give additional tools for a practitioner to diagnose, treat patients portraying pain for a variety of lower back pain. This is a 2-Day Course which will include didactic for each indication and a “hands-on” element immediately thereafter including protocols associated with the procedure as well as “standard of care” considerations.
The course is taught by Board Certified Physicians who have incorporated these procedures within their practice and will share their results in addition to reviewing the numerous evidenced-based studies on the topic including peer to peer articles that will give the attendee the insights to deliver these procedures safely and effectively. A full color manual and instructional videos illustrating the procedures are included through our Physician Portal.
