Pre-Requisite: MT-2: Essential Spinal Seminar-Remote Live or MT-2: Essential Spinal 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 Spine using the Maitland-Australian Approach to Orthopedic Manual Therapy. Review, refine, apply and practice the techniques learned in MT-2 – REMOTE LIVE or MT-2: Essential Spinal 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-2, this course is REQUIRED in order to attend the more advanced MAPS courses (MT-3: Intermediate Spinal Seminar) or to become a Certified Orthopedic Manual Therapist (COMT).
DescriptionMT-2 Skills Check Lab 15.3 Live hours/1.5 CEUs This 100% hands-on laboratory course is recommended for those looking to perfect the manual therapy skills learned in MT-2: REMOTE LIVE or for those who took MT-2: Essential Peripheral Seminar years ago. Participants will be able practice and refine, or as a refresher course for any MT-2 alumni.
|A two-day live (in-person) hands-on 100% laboratory for the treatment of spinal dysfunction under the tutelage of a MAPS Expert instructor. Eligible participants must have successfully completed either MT-2: Essential Spinal-REMOTE LIVE or MT-2: Essential Spinal Seminar. For those who completed the Remote Live version of MT-2, this is a pre-requisite for participation in the more advanced MAPS courses (MT-3: Intermediate Spinal Seminar) or to become a Certified Orthopedic Manual Therapist (COMT). A recommended course for those looking to perfect the manual therapy skills learned in the pre-requisite coued in this lab course through detailed expert instructor feedback given directly to each participant throughout the course. “LIVE” patient assessments and treatments are presented where permitted. Spinal regions extensively covered include: Cervical, Thoracic (including rib articulations) and Lumbar spine. Neurodynamic assessments and treatment of the upper and lower limbs is included and integrated with the associated spinal regions. For those who have taken the Remote Live version of MT-2, this course is REQUIRED prior to attending the more advanced MAPS courses (MT-3: Intermediate Spinal Seminar) or to become a Certified Orthopedic Manual Therapist (COMT).

MT-2: Essential SPINAL Course Objectives
Open to PTs, PTAs, ATs, OTs, COTAsUpon completion of the course the participant will be able to:
- Accurately differentiate between normal and abnormal resistance to passive spinal 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.
- Discriminate between five different grades of passive movement to manage spinal pathology (Grades I, II, III, IV, and V as per Maitland). PTAs, ATs, OTs, COTAs may observe all five grades, but are prohibited from performing Grades III, IV and V.
- Accurately apply at least two examples of Maitland’s five grades of passive movement to a participant-selected spinal region. PTAs, ATs, OTs, COTAs are limited to Grades I & II.
- Summarize Maitland’s clinical reasoning model, including eight clinical hypothesis categories per M. Jones and D. Rivett.
- Apply evidence-based clinical reasoning in the orthopedic manual therapy management of a patient with spinal pathology. Learner will demonstrate at least once.
- Synthesize principles of treating pain and stiffness as per Maitland and other manual P.T.s. Learner will orally defend at least one example.
- Accurately defend the most effective orthopedic manual therapy management of a patient with a spinal disorder based upon clinical assessment and clinical reasoning, rather than theoretical protocols. Learner will demonstrate at least once.
- Integrate clinical reasoning skills to recognize movement anomalies in one selected common spinal orthopedic condition.
- Integrate evaluation skills in differential assessment and diagnosis of one selected common spinal orthopedic condition. Objective applies to PTs, DCs, MDs and DOs only.
- Demonstrate the ability to quickly and effectively manage spinal orthopedic conditions using at least one known manual therapy technique.
- Accurately defend at least one modified or newly created effective manual therapy technique for the management of spinal orthopedic conditions. Learner will demonstrate their modified or newly developed technique at least once.
