What is this course about?
In this hands on workshop Dr. Rubinstein will introduce participants to methods to address neck pain through muscle energy stretching of the cervical vertebrae. This grade III manipulation technique is a gentle means of addressing cervical subluxations without a high velocity thrust. Instead, the vertebral segment is isolated and stretched back into alignment. This technique is especially applicable for the necks of elders and those who are hesitant to receive HVLA manipulation.
This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) through the joint providership of the University of California, Irvine School of Medicine and the Academy of Integrative Health & Medicine. The University of California, Irvine School of Medicine is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
