Basic Micro Alignment Adjusting Seminar

This seminar reviews the basic principles of Micro Alignment, Micro Analysis, the adjusting skill set and some of the soft tissue applications from the Level I Seminar. Key adjusting areas are the cranium, first rib, thoracic spine & ribs, pelvis & hip joints. Peripheral joint analysis and adjusting is demonstrated. The 12 hour seminar is held over 2 days to allow enough practice time and feedback for each doctor to complete the seminar with the ability to integrate their skills in practice for a variety of patients.

This course is for doctors who want to begin Micro Adjusting using the pisiform as a first class lever.

Learning objectives:

  • Review Micro analysis in standing, sitting, prone and supine positions
  • Learn the dynamics of using the primary adjusting hand as a lever and the importance of the support hand
