Advanced Principles of Extremity Soft Tissue Diagnosis and Treatment by Manual Methods – Certified Chiropractic Extremities Practitioner

Areas beyond the articulations must be evaluated and may need adjustment for complete healing to occur. You will learn that the articulations and soft tissues of the body are directly related and continuous throughout the body. Attendees will learn hands-on methods for the evaluation and treatment of these conditions.

The course is 50% lecture and 50% hands-on, adjusting & technique workshop.


At the end of this seminar, participants will be better able to

  • improve hands-on methods for the evaluation & treatment of:
    • myofascial syndromes;
    • peripheral and secular entrapments; and
    • muscle, tendon and ligamentous restrictions.
