The Level III Lower Quadrant “pulls it all together”. Advanced assessment techniques are taught to tackle the more difficult patient scenarios. Higher-level treatment approaches integrate the articular, neuromeningeal and myofascial components. This course will focus on treatment techniques. In this 9-day format, there will be considerable independent work, accessing online lectures and completing readings, which will be part of the material you will be responsible for on the exam. You will be provided access to the site prior to the course.


As this is a practical course, the participants should bring shorts and a comfortable top. Women should try to have their thoracic spine accessible (no racer back).
