Course participants must be licensed PTs. Licensure will be verified prior to acceptance into the courses.
Invest in your career. Gain high-level knowledge and expertise developing the treatment techniques to more extensively integrate manual therapy skills into your practice.
Ten months of training. Open solely to licensed physical therapists, the 10 workshops will enhance clinical assessment ability, manual PT treatment technique repertoire and handling skills.
Long-term continuing education, although less extensive than residency/fellowship training, provides a format for assimilating knowledge. Mobilization techniques of all grades will be included in this series.
Learn new techniques. Practice them, then, with constructive feedback and repetition, refine them. You’ll gain improved handling skills and mobilization techniques. You’ll develop differential diagnostic skills and enhance critical thinking in all aspects of patient management.
Apply your skills. The skills you learn can be applied to patient populations in many settings, including home health, geriatrics, pediatrics and neurological rehabilitation.
Research to support these evidence-based treatment approaches will be referenced.
The course will be held in 10 segments and taught in a lecture, laboratory and case study format. Class size will be small to allow individual feedback from the instructor. This individual instruction will help you develop your manual PT handling skills and mobilization techniques. For those who cannot attend the entire series, the course is organized to take a weekend or group of weekends or to spread out the series over two years, if space is available.
Course Descriptions & Objectives
You will learn subjective and objective examination and clinical reasoning – when to use the appropriate tests, how to interpret the examination results and treatment responses to differentiate and treat spinal, peripheral and neuromeningeal components of a condition and how to progress treatment for optimal recovery.
