Year 3 Diploma in Spinal Manipulative Therapy

ONE YEAR DURIATION – 20 Weekends!

This one year course is taught by Osteopaths and Medical Practitioners. The student is taken through the fascinating subject of back pain from consultation/examination to treatment plans for specific conditions associated with the spine.

The student is taught observation and palpatory skills, which aid diagnosis of spinal pain. Advanced techniques such as M.E.T. (muscle energy technique), C.T.M. (connective tissue manipulation), S.T.R. (soft tissue release) are also taught, as well as rehab exercise programs for all forms of back pain. The student is also taught spinal manipulation, where and most importantly when it is safe to adjust.

On the team of lecturers a Medical Doctor will lecture on the effect of prescribed medicines for back pain and why some drugs work for different types of pain.

The Doctor also covers Respiratory and CVS examination of the patients presenting at the clinic, which have pain, which may not be of muscular skeletal origin.
