COURSE PRESENTATION

The course aims to provide up-to-date information on the criteria for assessing patients prior to using high velocity low amplitude thrust techniques and identify absolute or relative contraindications to these techniques.

We will present and illustrate clinical decision-making algorithms for each region of interest in the axial spine, thorax and pelvis. All standard HVLA techniques used in clinical practice, their history and principles, evidence for use, and possible mechanisms of action will then be addressed. The practical part will focus on improving and perfecting these techniques and their integration into clinical practice.
