MT-3: Intermediate Spinal Seminar (15.9 Direct Contact Hours + 15.8 Home Study Hours; 3.2 CEUs)

$695.00

Continuation from MT-2, manual therapy for the Spine is taken to the intermediate level. Refinement and clarification of subjective & physical examinations; treatment for Cervical, Thoracic & Lumbar spine. Treatment Planning & Progression, Movement Diagrams, Modern Pain Theory, Cervicogenic Headaches (and other headache types), Whiplash, and highly specific passive physiological & accessory movement tests, extensive Neurodynamics, and improved skills in palpation (ability to feel changes in resistance & responses to mobilization). Emphasis is given to application and selection of techniques, progression of treatment, conversion of passive techniques into active exercises, neurological exams, and case histories.  INTRODUCTION to SPINAL MANIPULATION (where legally permitted). 

Pre-Requisite: MT-2

Treatment Planning & Progression, Movement Diagrams, Modern Pain Theory, Cervicogenic Headaches (and other headache types), Whiplash, and highly specific passive physiological & accessory movement tests, extensive Neurodynamics, and improved skills in palpation (ability to feel changes in resistance & responses to mobilization). Emphasis is given to application and selection of techniques, progression of treatment, conversion of passive techniques into active exercises, neurological exams, and case histories. INTRODUCTION to SPINAL MANIPULATION (where legally permitted). Subjective and objective physical differentiation techniques are taught using hypothesis testing for Cervical, Thoracic & Lumbar spine. Includes required Home Study course component of approximately 15.8 hours.
MT-3 Course Schedule* Day 1: 7:30am-5:30pm Day 2: 8:00am-4:00pm *Times subject to change.
MT-3 Course Requirements:
  • Course requires a prerequisite of MT-2: Essential Spinal Seminar. MAPS also recommends practicing the skills learned from MT-2 for four (4) to six (6) months prior to the MT-3.
  • Open to PTs, MDs, DCs, DOs. Enrollment limited. Lab clothes required for all sessions
  • Post test requires competency of 70% and overall competency of 70%.
  • Full CEUs require 100% direct contact attendance and completion of all Home Study assignments.
MT-3 Course Objectives Course participants upon completion will be able to:
  1. Accurately differentiate between normal and abnormal resistance to passive spinal movement using accessory & physiological examination/treatment techniques. Demonstrate at least one example.
  2. Integrate the course materials to select, properly apply, and defend selection of different grades of passive movement to spinal regions. Demonstrate at least 1 Thrust and 1 Non-thrust intervention
  3. Understand, discuss and accurately demonstrate Cervical Arterial Dysfunction (CAD) assessment prior to Cervical Thrust Manipulation.
  4. Understand, discuss and explain Maitland's clinical reasoning model, including eight clinical hypothesis categories per M. Jones and D. Rivett, and correctly demonstrate integration of these concepts into an evidence-based clinical reasoning model.
  5. Synthesize and correctly apply and defend principles of neurodynamic assessment and intervention. Demonstrate at least 1 example.
  6. Formulate, select and defend the most effective treatment & examination techniques for the spinal patient based upon clinical assessment and clinical reasoning, rather than theoretical protocols. Learner will be able to demonstrate at least once.
  7. Develop and refine skills in the utilization of movement diagrams. Demonstrate at least one example.
  8. Develop, refine and accurately demonstrate the ability to quickly and effectively treat orthopedic spinal conditions using at least one known manual therapy technique. Demonstrate at least one example.
  9. Develop, refine, demonstrate and accurately defend at least one modified or newly created effective manual therapy technique for the treatment of orthopedic conditions. Demonstrate at least one example.
  10. Understand, discuss and explain the principles of spinal traction.
