Manipulation Techniques to Key AreasThe locomotor system “thinks” in terms of function and its individual parts are integrated to work as a system. No part of function is isolated but is intimately linked to the entire locomotor system. Muscles and joints normally function together in groups, creating purposeful movements or stabilisation. Key links often occur at critical anatomical areas such as spinal transitional areas, areas of high innervations and control (craniocervical region, pelvis and feet), possibly chronically dysfunctional. Minimal leverage techniques addressing the spinal transitional areas, e.g. C7/T1, T12/L1, L5/S1, will be learnt.
Examination of the upper and lower limbs
Performing a neurological examination is vital to make sure your patient is treated appropriately or needs referring to another health practitioner. Neurological testing will be explained and
Examination of each of the sensory modalities
Sharp touch (pinprick)
Joint position sense (proprioception)
Motor PowerAssessment of power in the upper and lower limbs is required to be done in a systematic way. Testing flexion, extension, abduction and adduction of the muscle groups in the upper and lower body using the MRC scale for muscle power.
|MRC scale for muscle power
|0||No muscle contraction is visible.|
|1||Muscle contraction is visible but there is no movement of the joint.|
|2||Active joint movement is possible with gravity eliminated.|
|3||Movement can overcome gravity but not resistance from the examiner.|
|4||The muscle group can overcome gravity and move against some resistance from the examiner.|
|5||Full and normal power against resistance.|
Deep tendon reflexes
Biceps, triceps, and brachioradialis reflexes
Knee and ankle reflexes
Superficial tendon reflexes
Sole of the foot, Babinski reflex
Being aware of gait changes do to musculoskeletal dysfunction. Understand the observation of the patient as he or she rises e.g. from the chair to walk and note any abnormality of movement.
By the end of the course the successful Candidate will learn the
There are contraindications to using manipulative and articulation techniques. These risks are small and providing safe practice is used, there is minimal risk to the patient. Safe Practice will be taught on this course. The pre-course reading contains the most robust articles on the safety aspects of the minimal leverage thrust techniques used in manipulative therapy.
HVT Major Complications
HVT Contra-indications to treatment
HVT Relative contra-indications to treatment.
