Brian Tuckey, PT, OCS, JSCCI Founder and Creator of Fascial Counterstrain

Brian Tuckey, PT, OCS, JSCCI will present a section on segmental motion assessment that he has created over the past 30 years from his combined experience and hands on training.

Segmental motion assessment allows him to identify, in three dimensions, the exact location of a spinal restriction. He will then demonstrate how he isolates the exact point of release. This is an invaluable tool for your assessment process which will greatly increase your efficiency in clinical practice. It is one of Brian’s primary diagnostic tools that he uses in the creation of new techniques.

Brian’s presentation will include more than 6 hours of presentation and lab time to gain proficiency in this diagnostic skill set.

This will be a required element for the upcoming FCS certification process.

The breakout session will replace the Module 1 content portion of the convention for the same amount of CEU hours, currently estimated at 30 hours.
