Principles of Neuro-Spinal Biomechanics White Tissue Rehabilitation Looking at it from Acute Care Phase - Sept 15-16, 2018 Gig Harbor Wa

Event date: 9/15/2018 9:00 AM - 9/16/2018 8:00 AM Export event

This class covers the Principles of Neuro-Spinal Biomechanics and the Ideal Spine Model. We will discuss the 10 principles of The Pettibon Spine Model, normal nerve, muscle and disc/ligament functions and explain how to correct the sagittal plane using The Pettibon Body Weighting System.   Every patient responds to stress factors differently from external and internal environments, so we cover the abnormalities in each area of the: nerves, muscles and discs/ligaments. This information is a great foundation for knowing if a part of the body is functioning normally or abnormally.  We then take these concepts and principles and apply the appropriate rehabilitation procedures to help each step of the healing process.  This will increase the healing process and decrease healing time.

Pettibon Institute

The Pettibon Institute, a non-profit research and educational organization founded by Dr. Burl Pettibon in 1981, is dedicated to research that supports The Pettibon System's efficacy and provides the evidence-based courses that spread the practice of proven spine and posture correction and advance The Pettibon Rehab System.

Ask Pettibon practitioners what started the transformation of their practice and most will say it was their first course on The Pettibon System. The consistent reaction is how the science, logic, and compelling proof make it impossible to go back to conventional chiropractic. Many health care providers who take a Pettibon Institute course for instruction in a specific area find it to be an invaluable tool for getting patients out of pain and on their way to structural correction.

Pettibon Institute offers online, webinar and instructor-led courses that train practitioners in Pettibon Rehab System procedures, product use and implementation, as well as advanced trainings. Take courses through The Pettibon Institute at any time. For complete course catalog and current schedule, visit our Education page. Many thought they knew Pettibon before taking a class through the Institute and discovered they had only scratched the surface with other training organizations.
