Thoracic Spine Rehab Seminar

Thoracic Spine Rehabilitation Seminar Sydney

Dr. Hooper will be attending a Thoracic Spine Rehabilitation Seminar in Sydney this weekend. This seminar is focused on Chiropractic BioPhysics Rehabilitation and Case Management of the Thorax (mid back).

Therefore, due to the seminar obligations the Practices will be closed on Friday December 2nd until Monday evening December 5th. Normal hours for both Practices will resume on Tuesday December 6th, 2016.

This Rehab Seminar will cover the most update research and latest developments in the treatment and management the thoracic spine, postural correction and arthritic prevention.

The course outline is;


Structural Rehabilitation of the Thoracic Spine & CBP Case Management & CBP Australian Annual

This course provides an integrated education for the Doctor of Chiropractic in the Art and Science of chiropractic with an emphasis on postural and spinal distortions of the thoracic spine. Normal values for the sagittal plane of the thoracic kyphosis will be detailed from the literature and age related changes of the thoracic spine are reviewed.

The relationship of the thoracic spine to the lumbar and cervical regions will be discussed. A major emphasis is placed on understanding the role of thoracic spine disorders and subluxations to patient health and disease conditions.

Examination and documentation procedures will be reviewed mainly for thoracic vertebral subluxation complexes but lumbar and cervical subluxation complexes will be reviewed too.

Chiropractic adjustive and rehabilitative treatment techniques for thoracic, lumbar, and cervical subluxations will be detailed. A survey of research material will be reviewed supporting the utilization and efficacy of Chiropractic Biophysics technique treatment methods across a spectrum of patient conditions.
