Graduate Diploma in Manipulative Therapy with Honours part 2

Our Goodrum Osteopathic Short Lever Drop Table Technique

Diploma 5

The Drop Table Technique was developed by Dr Thompson, in the 1950’s in the USA

The Goodrum Osteopathic technique involves specific points of contacts on the body being applied while the table below has a drop piece set up. A force is applied as the drop table falls suddenly. The physics of every action having as equal and opposite reaction is used here. Once the table falls and stops, the bone is re-set or manipulated.  This is a very good technique for slight therapists that have a large patient to treat. This technique can generate up to 10 times more force than standard manipulation.

It is very useful to treat the pelvis and lumbar spine in the prone and side lying position. The drop table in the Advance course will only be taught around 2 hours- manual hand on manipulation to balance the spine is our focus.

You will be taught in the advance program how to further examine the cervical, thoracic, lumbar spine and pelvis joints to assess multiple misalignment – subluxation in combination with spinal or visceral pathologies. You will be able to formulate a differential diagnosis to give an effective specific manipulation treatment.

Q: How are we different to other manipulation course?

Answer: We teach you to effectively balance the SI J and full spine specifically, only manipulating real subluxation or misalignments.

You will learn a unique method of analysis which can be better than palpation alone using the innate intelligence of the body. With special Modified Goodrum Leg & kinesiology special tests, you will soon discover a new world of Misalignments and subluxation that you did not know existed.
