Modern Orthopaedic Manual Therapy of the Spine
16./17. März 2023
Modern Orthopaedic Manual Therapy of the Spine is a 2-day course designed to educate the learner on modern, evidence-based manual therapy principles, philosophies, mechanisms, techniques, home exercise programs, and clinical outcomes. The 70% lab and 30% lecture course is interactive and covers the following topics.
- The components that influence patient reported outcomes (e.g., natural history, non-specific and specific and shared effects);
- Specific mechanisms associated with thrust and non-thrust manipulation;
- The required specificity of manual therapy;
- Whether one form (or any form) of manual therapy leads to improved mechanisms or clinical effects;
- How to discuss the use of a manual therapy to a patient (in other words, what it does and doesn’t do);
- The overall clinical effects associated with thrust and non-thrust manipulation
By the end of the course, the learner will:
- Recognize many of the prevailing theories and myths associated with orthopaedic manual therapy (OMT);
- Understand the mechanisms associated with OMT;
- Identify the influence of an OMT intervention on patient outcomes;
- Decipher the evidence for OMT mechanisms and clinical outcomes;
- Synthesize the clinically-oriented evidence on thrust and non-thrust manipulation;
- Apply common OMT techniques in a laboratory setting;
- Identify methods to modify OMT techniques based on patient presentation;
- Identify augmented methods of OMT for home use;
- Recognize the gaps in the literature for thrust and non-thrust manipulation.
