It can be difficult to get enough speed to perform an effective lumbar gapping manip on larger patients. In the manual therapy video below taken during  our Manip Like a Girl: Work Smarter Not Harder course, NAIOMT's Stacy Soappman demonstrates ways to overcome that challenge .


Side note! Manip Like a Girl is for ANY PT looking for strategies and tools for effectively treating patients larger than themselves.  To reach new levels in confidently and safely treating the lumbar spine, join us for Manip Like a Girl, Lumbopelvic Spine I and Lumbopelvic Spine II, which can be taken in any order. Second and third year PT students enjoy  a reduced registration fee.
