Course Reviews

  • I have taken 3 spinal manipulation courses & this was by far the best in terms of my confidence leaving the course. The amount of hands-on vs lecturing was great. Dustin provides great hands-on feedback & is far more involved in the procedures than previous instructors.

  • Video was great & we were able to get lots of feedback & correct our technique. I feel comfortable using what we learned.

  • Great job. Loved the help with hand placement & working all the way through techniques.

  • Having taken Part 1, I was definitely motivated to take Part 2, thinking it would hone my skills, having no idea I would go on to learn so much more…additional techniques, positions, etc. The degree of practice with the attention to detail has never been matched by any other course I have taken.

    Missoula, MT

  • Wonderful course, great detail-orientation, lots of hands-on practice time, would definitely recommend.

    Kacie, DPT
    Jackson, CA

  • I really appreciated the hands-on help and attention to detail. I have not been good with spinal manipulation in the past and with the way he teaches, I felt like I better understood the content and finally got cavitations!

  • Videos demonstrating techniques were very helpful. Instructor was very available and freely assisted and demonstrated techniques…Atmosphere was positive, encouraging, and non-judgmental with hands-on for new learners.

  • I recently had a class with Dr. Buck. He is very professional and passionate regarding educating others and his profession. He seems well equipped to handle large and small class sizes while maintaining personalized attention. I really appreciated him spending extra time with me and going over how to modify my techniques, as I have smaller hands than some and working on larger people is difficult with body size. He was also open minded to learning from his students and incorporating thing he found valuable into his approach. Not everyone is flexible in their knowledge or teaching styles, but in the PT world I feel it is essential. I hope you get to enjoy one of his classes.

  • Course was a great opportunity to get hands-on experience with HVLA. The course does a great job of breaking down the movements of the thrust manipulations and there was a lot of opportunity to practice. I was able to go back to the clinic Monday and feel comfortable practicing on patients AND able to get cavitations.

  • The videos/looping was very helpful in allowing slow and real-time speed of the manipulation, especially while working with other therapists. Dr. Buck was very helpful in taking time to help me with the mechanics and techniques/changes that were necessary for me to be successful with my body type/structure. Within the class I was able to get a lot of hands-on work w/ different body types which is conducive to applying techniques to patients.

    Olivia Dyer, DPT

  • The attention to detail made the difference for me in this course. Dr. Buck was sure to provide hands-on help and devoted time in making sure everyone understood the techniques before moving on to the next portion of the course.
