About The Course
In this practical course human spinal biomechanics will be explored in common function and in some sports activities. The integrated nature of the body mechanics and its physiological components will inform an osteopathic approach to the evaluation and treatment of different conditions.
Starting with a review of relevant literature in the fields of fascial sciences and neurobiomechanics, the course will focus on the practical applications of this theoretical framework in everyday practice.
The biomechanical understanding of human movement is based on the concepts of Applied Functional Science® (Gray Institute, USA).
