Fundamentals of Spinal Bio Mechanics
By: Pettibon Institute

Course Description

Fundamentals covers the "what" and "why" of The Pettibon System. In this module you will learn how to identify normal spine form and function in a clinically relevant way. Learn how to harness the power of the patient's own nervous system to drive structural correction like never before. Discussion includes the importance of rehab with the adjusting and considerations for the neurologically fragile patient.

Content Listing & Educational Objectives Normal spinal form and function Neural control of posture The Pettibon Spinal ModelTM and its key principles Abnormal spinal form and function Posture patterns Soft tissue physiology Initiating Event Spinal Displacement Complex Soft tissue physiology Overview of Pettibon System X-ray Procedures Purpose of rehabilitation The Pettibon Weighting System Diagnostics & testing Overview of the three phases of care Upon completion, participants will be able to identify: The Pettibon Spinal Model and its key principles. The causes and consequences of abnormal spinal form and function. Soft tissues’ physiological properties and functions. The reasons why conventional chiropractic adjustments cannot force the spine into alignment. The difference between conventional chiropractic adjustments and mobilizations. The key components of The Pettibon System X-ray Procedures. The Pettibon Weighting System and how it works. The protocol patients follow for routine clinic visits. The three examinations conducted at every clinic visit. The specific instruments and rehabilitation equipment that support the implementation of The Pettibon System in the clinic. What Home Care is and why it’s important. The three phases of care and their distinctions.
