SCSII for the Extremities

SCS II focuses on dysfunction in the extremities. Lecture and extensive lab time are spent on the pelvis, hip, knee, ankle, foot, shoulder, elbow, wrist and hand. Emphasis is placed on developing palpatory and hands-on treatment skills to enhance the student’s effectiveness with the techniques. Upon completion of the course participants will understand the neuromuscular basis for Strain Counterstrain, know how to perform a full body evaluation and have learned the Strain Counterstrain documentation format. More than 85 techniques are taught throughout the course and each participant receives a syllabus outlining each technique demonstrated.
