The Advanced Graduate Diploma in Manipulative Therapy will include Goodrum Somatic Master Short Lever manipulation and some special Long Lever Osteopathic manipulation for the full spine pelvis, using only the best techniques modified from physiotherapy, osteopathy & chiropractic. An amazing 95% of the course will concentrate on Goodrum Somatic Master Short Lever manipulation, with Goodrum Modified Osteopathic articulation/ Mobilization and specific Goodrum osteopathic soft tissue techniques to aid the manipulation and re-balance the body. The course is very specific for spinal & disc manipulation similar to Diversified & Gonstead Chiropractic. We teach a specific point of contact on the patient’s spine, ilium or sacrum with specific vectors of force. This course is recommended once you have finished the certificate program part 1. However, if you are a Chiropractor,you can go straight to this advanced course without completing the certificate course. The precision of adjustments and analysis on this course is second to none! Chiropractors regularly join the Advanced course from England, Australia, USA & Europe.

The course covers in further detail Chiropractic History and Philosophy and the GoodrumSomatic Master Short Lever techniques. Including the Goodrum Specific manipulation method. This method is similar to Gonstead Chiropractic, but much improved. Our Goodrum techniques use a listing system to described misalignments in the spine & pelvis. Unlike Gonstead chiropractic we find our spinal/pelvic subluxation with palpation & other specific clinical tests that will truly amaze you. We use specific points of contact and vectors of thrust.

You will learn on this program how the spial nerves and subluxation affects different autonomic nerves, sympathetic and parasympathetic. We will teach how, as practitioners, manipulation becomes much more than just anipulation. Specific adjustments can restart the healing mechanism for many health conditions.
