In this workshop, participants will procure knowledge in anatomy/kinesiology of the ribcage, contraindications to mobilization of the ribcage and an understanding of how rib dysfunction presents in clients. Participants will enhance their skills in palpation of rib structure and obtain an assessment and treatment methodology for safe treatment of both functional (respiratory) and structural rib dysfunction.
This workshop has been approved for 16 Primary Credits through the MTAM.
Participants are eligible to sit for a written exam that includes both theoretical and practical multiple choice questions reflecting the information presented during the 2 day workshop. If the participant is successful in achieving a minimum 75% and shows evidence of 30 post-workshop practical hours of practice, they will receive a Certificate of Completion for the Rib Mobilization workshop.
