Still Technique is described as the “application of the rediscovered techniques of Andrew Taylor Still” and is a system of osteopathic assessment and manipulative treatment from the USA which aspires to recreate the manipulations of the ‘Old Doctor’.
A cross between structural and functional techniques, it is an alternative, or supplement, to HVT techniques, when such approaches are inappropriate or ineffective. It is also applicable to every area of the body and suitable for a wide range of patients.
This 6 hour CPD workshop will introduce the theory and practice of Still Technique, and will focus on the lumbar spine, pelvis and 1st rib.
This course is suitable for qualified osteopaths, final year undergraduate osteopathic students and final year students on the UCO MSc pre-registration course (UCO MSc Pre-Reg).
