Akron, OH  44333  USA

Course Description:

There is myriad of evidence to support the effectiveness of using manual therapy to address pain and musculoskeletal disorders. Often this important modality is overlooked in the treatment of geriatric patients. This course presents the evidence-based rationale for using manual therapy with geriatric patients and demonstrates how manual therapy can safely and effectively be applied to this patient population. Using the concepts of Robin McKenzie, Geoffrey Maitland, and Brian Mulligan, this course details their manual therapy techniques for treating the spine and extremities. The philosophical, evaluative, and treatment concepts of each approach will be compared and contrasted. This fast-paced course will focus on lab instruction with ample time for hands-on practice of a large variety of manual techniques. A problem solving approach will be presented to assist in the clinical application of manual therapy techniques on the older patient by providing the indication of each technique as they relate to symptoms and diagnoses. This is the perfect course to attend if you see geriatric orthopedic patients or have ever been curious about these three manual therapy approaches. Please bring an exercise mat and pillow for padding tables and long gait belt or mobilization belt for practicing techniques.
