The purpose of Spinal Mobility is to teach. We want to teach clinicians and students about novel interventions available to treat and support people with neurologically based disability during the rehabilitative and post-rehabilitative phases of their lives. We are similarly committed to teaching people with these disabilities how to promote and progress their own health through exercise.
Taught by clinicians who are experts in using the Spinal Mobility technique and assisted by model demonstrators, this class gives attendees an opportunity to learn hands-on skills when using the technique with people with different body types and levels ofinjuries. The class consists of 3 levels with certification upon completion of each of them. The Workshop is given in the Spring and Fall but it may also be hosted by any facility at any time. CEUs in PT are awarded for this class.
A demanding, free 8 week boot camp for people with Spinal Cord Injury that meets for 4 hours, once a week. During the class, participants learn about how to exercise and how to set up an exercise space in their homes. It is staffed by volunteering clinicians and students allowing all the participants to share their knowledge about exercise and rehabilitation while enabling the Volunteers to practice the Spinal Mobility technique and review other fitness activities pertinent to this population. The class is held in the Spring and in the Fall.
This one hour lecture is presented to clinicians in their facility as a lunch time in-service or a brown-bag meeting. It is presented by an instructor with the assistance of a model-demonstrator; someone with SCI or other trunk weakness limitation.
