FSTT® Curriculum

CMCC has integrated FSTT® into its core curriculum by providing students with 6 lab experiences that all students are rotated through before they enter their clinical training. These lab experiences provide a safe setting where students can be introduced to the mechanics of High Velocity Low Amplitude thrusts for different regions of the body. Students can practice safely on manikins while they receive objective feedback on the performance (example: Preload Force, Impulse Force, Load Rate, etc).

Each Lab Experience focuses on a different region of the spine:

  • Prone thoracic procedures
  • Supine thoracic procedures
  • Side posture procedures
  • Cervical-Thoracic procedures
  • Lower cervical procedures
  • Upper cervical procedures

See below for a sample of our lesson plans.

Attached below is a sample lesson plan for the labs that CMCC runs for its preclinical students as part of its core curriculum which focuses exclusively on Diversified Technique. Many institutions around the world have adopted a similar approach or a slightly modified approach to serve the techniques in their core curriculum.

Coming Soon

With the recent development of handheld sensors we are planning to build out additional experiences for./p>

  • Upper extremity procedures
  • Lower extremity procedures
  • Pediatrics
  • *Animal Chiropractic

Continuing Education

Pre Pandemic CMCC has been continually running very popular continuing education courses using the FSTT® system.

These courses allows practitioners to profile their adjustments they use in their practice using the FSTT® and video replay. They are provided an opportunity to reflect on their force modulation capacity/control, their speed, and the ergonomics of their technique. Individualized goals are set and participants are provide an opportunity to practice and receive coaching. The day finishes with an opportunity to reprofile their technique, and practice on each other.

We hope to restart the program again soon as restrictions lift in our region.
