Seminar attendee practices hands-on techniques on an instructor.

Spine Level 1

Spine Level 1 trains healthcare professionals to effectively treat common soft-tissue disorders such as TMJ, migraines, low back pain, and other various neck and back injuries. Utilizing palpation, you will learn to compare the movement and texture of healthy versus unhealthy tissue to detect problems with muscles, fascia, tendons, ligaments and nerves. By the end of the seminar, you will be able to provide comprehensive diagnosis for a patient’s spine or spine-related condition using ART’s Diagnostic Algorithm™, touch, texture, movement, and function to perform the appropriate ART protocol(s) to resolve pain, restore function, and/or optimize performance within the spine and related structures.
