Grad Dip sports extremity manipulation (APBC part 3)
Q. Is APBC chiropractic or osteopathy ?
A. No. APBC is an independent technique in its own right.
Dr Robbie Goodrum’s Advanced postural Biomechanical Correction APBC techniques is inspired from UK Sports therapy, Osteopathy, Biomechanics, kinesiology & Physiotherapy, with 100% of Dr Robbie’s own safe unique techniques.
Each style does not rely on x rays and uses palpation as the main method of detection of somatic dysfunction or misalignment. Osteopaths use a Long and short lever system of manipulation, and it is very specific to a vertebral level or one bone.
Osteopaths have developed some nice Extremity manipulation moves that will be easily fit into every day physiotherapy practice.
The course includes 1 course book with a clear Photo for each method
Lower and Upper Extremity Manipulation is taught over 5 days.
The Techniques taught are Physiotherapy Mobilizations, Goodrum Osteopathic HVT High Velocity Thrusts methods with low amplitude, Goodrum Osteopathic Articulation, Osteopathic Soft tissue and Specific Short Lever Extremity Manipulation, modified from Chiropractic.
Each profession has some good methods of assessing and treating lower and Upper extremity problems. We teach the best of the best!
Our mission is to help the professional practitioner perfect their diagnostic and manipulating skills, to enable him or her offer the best to their patients.
