Spinal Manipulation Workshop

This course is for those therapists who have completed Series 1 or are registered as a manipulative therapist in Alberta or any other province who are having problems with one or more assessment or manipulative techniques and would like some help perfecting them. This one-day course will be entirely about your problems and will not simply re-hash theory or re-teach techniques that nobody needs to review.
