    Description:

    This course is designed for the physical therapist who has some experience with treating thoracic and cervical spine dysfunction but would like to improve on his or her manual skills including soft tissue and joint mobilization, and thrust joint manipulation.  Instruction of techniques for each region will be grounded in the supporting evidence where available, with discussion of the lack of evidence as appropriate.  The indications, contraindications, precautions and adverse reactions for the various techniques will be presented via lecture and discussions.  The majority of time will be spent in lab sessions, with ample time for practice of the techniques.  The participant will gain confidence in his or her technique application, and will be able to assess whether or not application of the technique was successful and effective.

     Level: Intermediate

    Intended Audience:

    PT’s currently managing patients with musculoskeletal disorders.

    Prior course work in manual therapy preferred. 

    A strong background in orthopedic manual therapy (even without TJM experience) is preferred but not required.

    Course Objectives:

    1.     Discuss the indications and contraindications for manual therapy interventions to the thoracic and cervical spinal regions.

    2.     Discuss the evidence, or lack thereof, supporting spinal manual therapy.

    3.     Perform selected manual techniques to the thoracic and cervical spine.

    4.   Assess for the effectiveness of the technique applied, and make appropriate adjustments to implementing the plan of care.
