ISOMT Evidence based Complete Spine & Peripheral Joint Manipulations HVLAT- Dr Stephen Fort (USA)

Course Overview

Course Description : 

Dr Stephen Fort from Africa - USA will be there for 6 hours Virtually from US , & Dr Parijat Kumar - Founder of ISOMT , will be the US Expert for Hands on Training. Both US Based Specialists are here to teach, guide, demonstrate and practice in details the evidence behind Spine & Peripheral Joint Manipulations. 

An emphasis on gentle and effective technique will be given using a osteopathic inspired approach which utilizes the component technique in which a maximal number of levers is used for each manipulation thus increasing the accuracy, comfort, and success of each technique. A brief review of indications, contraindications will be given. Additionally to compliment this lab-heavy course, clinical pearls and advanced clinical reasoning will be discussed for various manipulations to show their utility in light of regional interdependence.


Course Objectives:


1. Brief review of the history of manipulation and the various approaches and models.

2. Brief review Indications and Contraindications for Manipulations

  • Includes a stringent screening process prior to cervical manipulation

3. 80-90% lab time will include an exhaustive compilation of manipulations whereby each joint will be manipulated in as many different ways and positions as possible to afford the attending practitioners a variety of techniques for each body part so that the practitioner may be able to successful work around different body parts, patients unable to assume certain positions, etc etc.
