ELEC 5124 - Calibrating OMM Skills

0.5 credit hours

This elective focuses on one skill that is used significantly within osteopathic manipulation, the production of force with the hands on the body. The course specifically trains the student how to use their thumbs to evaluate segmental motion at the thoracic, lumbar, and sacral regions of the body minimizing biomechanical bias that commonly develops in the development of these skills. Computer-based modules have been created, pilot tested several times, and refined that will direct the participants how to perform their testing and practice sessions. A designated member of the development team will provide a “help desk” to address any questions or problems a participant may experience.
