Physiotherapy Course Summary:
Mastering Manipulation Fundamentals & Advanced Approaches
ALL PARTICIPANTS RECEIVE TWO FREE MANIPULATION TOOLS WHEN ATTENDING IOMT-1:
1. Manipulation Foam Roll . . . gamechanger with larger patients and busy clinics.
2. Thoracic Manipulation Tool . . . this will save your most valuable tool, your hands! This is a knuckle saver!
“Excellent trainers. Fantastic two days. One of the best courses I have ever been on.” Paul Battersby, BSc (Hons) MSCP, President of the Federation of Holistic Therapists, Senior Lecturer Glyndwr University – Wrexham, Wales
“Not only is the skill/technique emphasized but even more importantly the clinical reasoning! I feel confident in my ability to reason through why or why not to manipulate after attending IOMT-1. I believe all clinicians could benefit from this course.” Leona Sharman, PT – Mesa, AZ
This 15-hour, 2-day spinal manipulation course taught by physiotherapy manipulative experts from the U.S will be supplemented with online modules strategically developed to maximize use of the two days, which will be 90% hands-on. IOMT-1 lays the foundations of clinical reasoning, pattern recognition, and motor skills acquisition needed to effectively incorporate spinal manipulation immediately into current patient practice and will take the expert clinician to a new level of proficiency and add new advanced techniques to your skill set.
MODIFIED TECHNIQUES FOR SMALLER THERAPIST: Dr. Rachel Grubb will be instructing on specific modifications for the smaller therapist vs. larger patient for all regions. "Manipulation is a co-ed sport, and you may be out-sized, but never overmatched."
This course will set the participant apart from the competition and take even a senior provider to a new level of expertise. This course is ideal for physiotherapists, osteopaths, and chiropractors.
More than just manipulative techniques. Participants will develop the confidence, knowledge, and ability to effectively assess patients with spinal conditions and to accurately identify those that would benefit from manipulative therapy. Instruction of effective spinal manipulative techniques to all regions of the spine will include the upper c/s (OA, AA), mid/lower-cervical, the cervicothoracic junction, mid t/s, ribs, thoracolumbar junction, lumbar spine, and SIJ. Manipulative techniques will be followed by non-thrust, HEP & neuromuscular re-education strategies for optimal patient outcomes.
Cervical spine techniques will be presented in supine and seated positions. In addition, participants will be introduced to alternative compressive non-thrust techniques that will lay the foundation of management of patients with neurogenic presentations including radiculopathies.
Low instructor-student ratios (≤ 1:15) guaranteed.
