Description

MT-1: Essential Peripheral Seminar – REMOTE LIVE Course 13.5 Live Hours + 13.8 Home Study Hours = 27.3 Total Hours; 2.7 CEUs
  • Weekend course: Live hours over two days
  • Month long course: Live hours one night/week over 4 weeks
May be taken as the first course in the MAPS series. An evidence-based introduction to the Maitland-Australian approach to orthopedic manual therapy (OMT), focusing on effective assessment and treatment of neuro-musculoskeletal disorders of the Upper and Lower Limbs. Includes all the same information as the MT-1 FULL COURSE, excluding the in-person supervised hands-on laboratory. For those who wish to advance to higher level courses or become a Certified Orthopedic Manual Therapist (COMT), completion of a 1-day Skills Check Lab is required as well - see brief description below.  The required Home Study of 13.8 hours is completed online, at your own pace through MAPS Online Learning, which includes a 4.8-hour PowerPoint lecture presentation.
 
Participants are presented with peer-reviewed published evidence supporting the mechanical, neurophysiological, immunological, and psychological mechanisms of action of Orthopedic Manual Therapy (OMT). As part of the live course preparation, evidence from recent Systematic Reviews and RCTs are provided to illustrate the effectiveness of the approach, and specific conditions that respond to OMT.
The major course modules for MT-1 Remote Live include:
  • Lecture Overview and Introduction
  • Mechanisms of Action of OMT
  • Evidence for OMT Effectiveness
  • Maitland Principles
  • Subjective Examination & Physical Examination
  • Clinical Applications: Evidence supporting the value of the techniques, conditions that they treat, and how to best incorporate them into your clinical practice
  • Clinical Reasoning
  • Lots of interactive Q&A time with MAPS expert instructor (2+ hours)
The Maitland-Australian approach is extremely patient-centric and focuses upon highly specific subjective & objective physical examination processes. Clinical Reasoning and constant reassessment are taught and emphasized. Methods of assessment and treatment are demonstrated during the live component of the course and a real-time patient assessment is demonstrated and analyzed. Techniques taught include:
  1. Mobilization & Manipulation
  2. Active Physiological Movements (APMs)
  3. Passive Physiological Movements (PPMs)
  4. Passive Accessory Movements (PAMs)
  5. Combination movements incorporating both osteokinematic (physiological) and arthrokinematic (accessory) movements
  6. Neurodynamic assessment
Regions extensively covered include: Shoulder (Gleno/Humeral, Scapulo/Thoracic, and A/C, S/C Clavicular articulations), Elbow, Wrist, Hand, and Fingers. In the lower limb the Hip, Knee Complex, the Ankle-Foot-Toes complex, and NAD-Neurodynamic assessment. The bound manual includes detailed step-by-step instructions for each technique with more than 422 photographs. Over 900 references are provided. MT-1 REMOTE LIVE Course Schedule A blended online and live learning experience, in which the pre-course materials and additional home study are provided through MAPS Online Learning, in combination with a live two-day weekend seminar through our virtual classroom. Note: Exact time schedule below is subject to change. Check your confirmation letter for details. MT-1: Remote Live (week-end course) DAY 1: 8:00AM-4:30PM (includes two 15-min breaks, one 30-min lunch) DAY 2: 8:00AM-1:15PM (includes two 15-min breaks, no lunch) MT-1: Remote Live (4-week course) Tuesday nights: 7:15PM-11:00PM (includes one 15-min break) MT-1 REMOTE LIVE Course Requirements:
  • Open to PTs, PTAs*, ATs*, DCs, MDs, DOs, OTs. Enrollment limited.
  • Access to the internet via a desk or laptop computer or smartphone device
  • Headphone or external speakers recommended for best quality audio sound
  • No previous experience with manual therapy required
  • Average overall competency of 70% required for successful completion. Written assignments worth 65% and class participation represents 35% of overall grade.
  • Full CEUs require 100% attendance and completion of all Home Study assignments.
*Participants are advised that in accordance with APTA HOD RC 31-01 the material taught in MAPS courses is not intended to be used outside the scope of the participants personal abilities, licensure, or relevant regulations. Furthermore, elements of the seminars are considered Physical Therapy only when performed by or under the direction of a licensed Physical Therapist. If I attend MT-1 REMOTE LIVE, should I also attend the MT-1 Skills Check Lab? The MT-1 Skills Check Lab is now the two-day lab-only component of the live, in-person MT-1: Essential Peripheral Seminar.  This 90% hands-on laboratory provides directly supervised feedback from a MAPS expert instructor.  To take the more advanced MAPS courses (i.e., MT-4: Differential Assessment/Clinical Reasoning) or to become a Certified Orthopedic Manual Therapist (COMT), completion of the live in-person Lab Component of MT-1 Essential Peripheral Seminar (or MT-1 Skills Check Lab) is required. Those who have attended an MT-1: Essential Peripheral Seminar- REMOTE LIVE or a standard live, in-person MT-1 Essential Peripheral Seminar are welcome to register for only the two-day lab for MT-1: Essential Peripheral Seminar at a reduced rate (choose MT-1 Skills Check Lab).  
(An additional charge of $25-75 will be required for shipping of the course manual outside of the U.S.)
 
IMPORTANT NOTE: Once a participant has accessed the online content of a course, that registration is no longer be eligible for refund, and the ability to transfer will be limited to the registered participant, who is free to transfer into another MT-1 or MT-2 course on the MAPS schedule, if such a transfer is requested at least two weeks prior to the course date. Transfers into other MAPS courses or to another individual will not be allowed after the participant has commenced the online content of the course.
MT-1 Remote Live Course Objectives Upon completion of the course the participant will be able to:
  1. Recognize the difference between normal and abnormal movement patterns during passive peripheral movements, including accessory & physiological examination techniques.  
  2. Identify the four different grades of passive movement to manage peripheral pathology (Grades I, II, III, and IV as per Maitland).
  3. Recall at least two examples of Maitland’s four grades of passive movement to a participant-selected peripheral region.
  4. Describe Maitland’s clinical reasoning model, including eight clinical hypothesis categories per M. Jones and D. Rivett.
  5. Identify the dimensions of evidence-based clinical reasoning in the orthopedic manual therapy management of a patient with peripheral pathology.
  6. Synthesize principles of treating pain and stiffness as per Maitland and other manual P.T.s.
  7. Identify the most effective orthopedic manual therapy management of a patient with a peripheral disorder based upon clinical assessment and clinical reasoning, rather than theoretical protocols.
  8. Integrate clinical reasoning skills to recognize movement anomalies in selected common peripheral orthopedic conditions.
  9. Integrate evaluation skills in differential assessment and diagnosis in selected common peripheral orthopedic conditions.
Please refer to MT-1 Full Course Competencies for proficiency participants should be aiming to accomplish after diligent practice of skills learned in MT-1.  Proficiency in the Course Competencies are required for both the MAPS COMT and Orthopedic Manual Therapy Fellowship.
Attention PTAs & ATs Attending MT-1 or MT-2 PTAs and ATs attending any MAPS course specifically agree limit their practice to the assessment of physiological movement up to but not beyond the first onset of resistance (R1). Thus, PTAs are required to limit their lab practice to only Grades I and II assessment, which are small and large amplitude movements respectively, which occur in the resistance free range prior to R1. Furthermore, PTAs attending any MAPS course specifically agree to limit their practice to physiological (osteokinematic) movements and refrain from performing accessory (arthrokinematic) movements. The practice of mobilization/manipulation is legally regulated by state Practice acts, and MAPS does not advocate that any practitioners (PT, PTA, or others) practice any procedure outside their legal scope of practice.  MAPS course content is not intended for use by ANY participant outside the scope of their license or relevant regulations. PTAs attending this course agree to limit their clinical practice, during and after any MAPS course, to their specific State practice act(s), and to comply with the directions of their supervising Physical Therapist in accordance with APTA HOD RC 31-01.
