The Fundamentals and Finesse of Manual Spinal Adjusting
Dr. Kunikiyo has been a practicing chiropractor for nearly 30 years now, and has continually strived to improve his adjusting skills on an ongoing basis. His passion for the art of chiropractic led him to distill the fundamentals of good "hands-on" adjusting common to the leading manual adjusting techniques. He has worked with Chirotouch--the nation's premiere chiropractic software program--in developing macros for other doctors to use, making for fast, yet thorough chart notes. He practices in the beautiful small town of Morton, Washington, enjoying a high-referral, no-stress practice.
~ This seminar is a very hands-on workshop, designed to immediately improve adjusting skills in doctors, utilizing primarily manual adjusting.
~ It’s not technique-specific, but rather reviews and emphasizes the fundamentals and finesse involved in delivering an effective manual spinal adjustment.
~ It all starts with being in the right spot—if you’re adjusting the wrong segment, it doesn’t matter how good an adjustment you deliver. So we will spend a fair amount of time on palpation, and developing certainty that you are in the right spot, with the proper line of correction.
~ We’ll cover full spine and pelvic adjusting, emphasizing the most common subluxations, and how to correct them.
~ Proper patient positioning and doctor biomechanics are reviewed for every corrective adjustment, along with commonly made mistakes.
~ There are basic fundamentals involved in all manual spinal adjusting--such as high velocity/low amplitude, taking the joint to tension, etc.—as well as certain finesse points that are involved in delivering a great adjustment that will be reviewed and drilled.
~ The end goal of this workshop is to develop proficiency, confidence and certainty in the doctor immediately, and to allow the doctor to continue to develop their skills on their own.
