The Eclectic Approach combines many different schools of thought. Assessment uses Repeated Motions, Neurodynamics and the SFMA for patient classification.

Classification leads to treatment which draws upon techniques from Paris, Mulligan, Butler, Rocabado, and includes thrust and non thrust manipulation, functional mobilizations and release (movement based), neurodynamics, and IASTM with the EDGE

A strong educational approach and patient responsibility with home exercises, decreasing fear avoidance, and often simple movements the patient may easily perform are covered at each seminar.

The courses are 1 or 2 days, and the suggested length is after the course title, however they can be mixed and matched, combining two single day seminars into a two day presentation, etc. 


Ortho=Neuro/Neuro=Ortho

The Eclectic Approach lets the practitioner "hack into the nervous system." It has been also described as the Jeet Kune Do of the health care arena. It takes the best and most effective methods of education, assessment, and treatment, and finishes it off with more education to lock the improvements in.
