Overview

A number of therapies have success with back problems to various degrees. One shortfall with this is our own individual uniqueness. What works for one, may not work for someone else. The basis of this course, is that it offers a bundle of techniques, approaches and ideas from a broad spectrum of therapies that do work.

This gives the practitioner the ability to work out a treatment plan for the individual that stands the best chance of bringing lasting results.
