IMT-1: Integrative Manipulative Therapy of the Spine
This live 16-hour, 2-day spinal manipulation is supplemented with online modules strategically developed to maximize use of the two days, which will be 90% hands-on. IMT-1 lays the foundations of clinical reasoning, pattern recognition, and motor skills acquisition needed to effectively incorporate spinal manipulation immediately into current patient practice.
“Labs were well done with opportunities to work with different body types. Lectures were short but very informative. I’ve been to many manual therapy courses over my 35+ year career and this one was the best.” - Larry Burks, PT, Cert. SMT, Cert. DN, Cert. MDT – Cookeville, TN -
Learn the when, why and how of manipulation. Skillset acquisition will set the practicing clinician apart from the competition and take even a senior provider to a new level of expertise.
Participants will develop the confidence, knowledge, and ability to effectively evaluate patients with spinal conditions and to accurately identify those that would benefit from manipulative therapy. Instruction of effective spinal manipulative techniques to all regions of the spine will include the upper c/s (OA, AA), mid/lower-cervical, the cervicothoracic junction, mid t/s, ribs, thoracolumbar junction, lumbar spine and SIJ (with highly effective alternatives for smaller physios).
Cervical spine techniques will be presented in supine and seated positions. In addition, participants will be introduced to alternative compressive non-thrust techniques that will lay the foundation of management of patients with neurogenic presentations including radiculopathies.
“I am a seasoned practitioner of over 30 years who has taken multiple manipulation courses. I appreciated this course because the techniques are profound in effect without being overly complex or too technical.” - Cliff Steagall, PT, CSCS, CEAS II – Woodstock, GA -
Procert an FSBPT Program has certified the course for 17 CCU's (18.7 Contact Hours).
