High Velocity Spinal Technique 2017-11-14T14:58:11+00:00

HIGH VELOCITY SPINAL TECHNIQUE (HVST)

High Velocity Spinal Technique (HVST or HVLA) involves the comprehensive study of joint mobilization techniques and its application in multiple treatment protocols. Participants will be given an introduction to HVST that includes a lecture on current evidence-based research on joint mobilizations followed by a discussion on the competing theories regarding its application. Participants will also be given a clinical/lab session where they will learn proper patient preparation in various positions. Additionally, participants will be taught the different hand hold options and proper body mechanics of the various mobilization techniques by distinct locations on the body.
