Open to PTs, PTAs, MDs, DOs  DCs

Pre-Requisite: MT-1: Essential Peripheral-REMOTE LIVE or MT-1: Essential Peripheral Seminar

A two-day live (in-person) 100% hands-on laboratory focusing on the application of effective assessment and treatment techniques of neuro-musculoskeletal disorders of the Upper and Lower Limbs using the Maitland-Australian Approach to Orthopedic Manual Therapy.  Review, refine and apply the techniques learned in MT-1: Essential Peripheral Seminar-REMOTE LIVE  or MT-1: Essential Peripheral Seminar. Psychomotor skills are supervised and refined through detailed expert instructor laboratory feedback given directly to each participant throughout the course. “LIVE” patient assessments and treatments are presented where permitted.

For those who have taken the Remote Live version of MT-1, this course is REQUIRED before attending the more advanced MAPS courses (MT-4: Intermediate Spinal Seminar) or to become a Certified Orthopedic Manual Therapist (COMT).

Attention PTAs, ATs, OTs, COTAs Attending MT-1 or MT-2:  PTAs attending any MAPS course specifically agree to identify themselves to the Course Instructor and limit their laboratory practice to the assessment of physiological movement up to but not beyond the first onset of resistance (R1). 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 laboratory 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.

Description

MT-1 Skills Check Lab

17.5 Live hours/1.75 CEUs

This 100% hands-on laboratory course is recommended for those looking to perfect the manual therapy skills learned in MT-1: REMOTE LIVE or for those who took MT-1: Essential Peripheral Seminar years ago.  Participants will be able practice and refine the psychomotor manual therapy skills taught in MT-1 or MT-1 - REMOTE LIVE under the tutelage of the instructor. Detailed expert instructor feedback given directly to each participant throughout the course. “LIVE” patient assessments and treatments are presented where permitted.  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.   For those who have taken the Remote Live version of MT-1, this course is REQUIRED in order to attend the more advanced MAPS courses (MT-4: Intermediate Spinal Seminar) or to become a Certified Orthopedic Manual Therapist (COMT).
  • The Skills Check Lab weekend hones hands-on manual therapy skills for MT-1.  This laboratory is combined with the full lab component of  MT-1: Essential Peripheral Seminar.
  • MT-1 Skills Check Lab Pre-requisites:  MT-1: Essential Peripheral - REMOTE LIVE or MT-1: Essential Peripheral Seminar.

MT-1: Essential Peripheral Course Objectives Open to PTs, PTAs, ATs, OTs, COTAs

  1. Accurately differentiate between normal and abnormal resistance to passive peripheral movement using accessory & physiological examination techniques. Demonstrate at least one example. PTAs, ATs, OTs, COTAs are limited to using physiological movement examination techniques only, and may not use accessory techniques.
  2. Discriminate between four different grades of passive movement to manage peripheral pathology (Grades I, II, III, and IV as per Maitland). PTAs, ATs, OTs, COTAs may observe all four grades, but are prohibited from performing Grades III and IV.
  3. Accurately apply at least two examples of Maitland’s four grades of passive movement to a participant-selected peripheral region. PTAs, ATs, OTs, COTAs are limited to Grades I & II. 
  4. Summarize Maitland’s clinical reasoning model, including eight clinical hypothesis categories per M. Jones and D. Rivett.
  5. Apply evidence-based clinical reasoning in the orthopedic manual therapy management of a patient with peripheral pathology. Learner will demonstrate at least once.
  6. Synthesize principles of treating pain and stiffness as per Maitland and other manual P.T.s. Participant will orally defend at least one example.
  7. Accurately defend the most effective orthopedic manual therapy management of a patient with a peripheral disorder based upon clinical assessment and clinical reasoning, rather than theoretical prot Learner will demonstrate at least once.
  8. Integrate clinical reasoning skills to recognize movement anomalies in one selected common peripheral orthopedic condition.
  9. Integrate evaluation skills in differential assessment and diagnosis of one selected common peripheral orthopedic condition. Objective applies to PTs, DCs, MDs and DOs only.
  10. Demonstrate the ability to quickly and effectively manage peripheral orthopedic conditions using at least one known manual therapy technique.
  11. Accurately defend at least one modified or newly created effective manual therapy technique for the management of peripheral orthopedic conditions. Participant will demonstrate their modified or newly developed technique at least once.
Please refer to MT-1 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. Note: In CA the student/faculty ratio will be no higher than 16:1
