WEB-MMT: The Mechanisms of Manual Therapy – The Truths Revealed

$125.00

Contact Hours: 4.1 Remote Learning Hours
Open to: PTs, PTAs, MDs, DOs, DCs, and ATs

MAPS is proud to present this Remote Learning webinar, exclusive only to MAPS, that explains the most current state of the research, and identifies both the mechanisms that are known to occur, and those that do not occur with the application of manual therapy. The information found in hundreds of dedicated research articles is consolidated and presented in a concise and cohesive manner.

The world-renowned and award-winning instructor and Duke University professor Dr. Chad Cook explores the mechanistic studies in terms of Neurophysiological, Biophysiological and Psychological effects of manual therapy, all of which is supported by research evidence. Following Dr. Cook’s presentation, MAPS Fellowship Program Director Dr. Chris Showalter guides participants through the basics of one of the most famous approaches to Orthopedic Manual Therapy, known as the Maitland-Australian Approach.

Appointed Chair of the Accreditation Council on Orthopedic Manual Physical Therapy Education (ACOMPTE) which sets the Standards and issues accreditation for U.S. Fellowship programs for the American Academy of Orthopedic Manual Therapists (AAOMPT) in compliance with both US and International Standards per the International Federation of Orthopedic Manipulative Physical Therapists (IFOMPT). Chris has also served as the US Representative to IFOMPT (2000-2009), and on the RIG Development Task Force (2015-2020) Since 1990 Chris has been teaching skilled orthopedic manual therapy through MAPS in the USA and internationally including: Brazil, Canada, China, India, Netherlands, Saudi Arabia, Spain, Taiwan, and the UK. He has authored 28 Peer-reviewed papers, 2 Textbook Chapters, and 70 Research Commentaries and has been an invited Keynote Speaker for many US and International physical therapy professional conferences. His clinical interests include: Clinical Reasoning, Cervicogenic Headaches, and Bio-Psycho-Social effects of manual therapy
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.
