Course outline
This one-day course will use clinical cases from the cervical, thoracic and lumbar region to explore clinical reasoning, hypothesis generation and formulation of assessment and treatment options that will enhance the use of manual therapy including high velocity thrust
to the spine.
Learning outcomes:
At the end of the course participants will be able to:

  • Demonstrate advanced clinical reasoning and decision-making in the assessment of patients with disorders of the neuromusculoskeletal system
  • Demonstrate advanced skill in application of spinal treatment techniques

Attendance at the course requires some prior knowledge and training of clinical reasoning and application of manual therapy to the spine.
Second year DPT students are welcome to attend.
