Course Format and Method of Instruction:

You are able to start and stop your viewing time as needed. Your course certificate will be available for you to print upon completion of the course.
The LIVE portion of this course offers live lecture and extensive hands-on lab demonstrating and modeling techniques. Powerpoint presentations are used and participants receive a manual with all course materials printed.
We have designed this program to allow flexibility in learning and opportunities for review. The emphasis on theoretical content in the online experience is designed to complement the emphasis on hands-on experiences in the two-day live course. In order to optimize the connection between the theoretical content and hands-on experience, each individual has six months** to review online information; this includes three months before and three months after attending the two-day live course.
The hands-on experience at the two-day live courses emphasizes teaching and practicing clinical examination, differential diagnosis, management development, and orthopedic manual therapy. This experience focuses on techniques and problem solving, as well as clinical analysis, synthesis and application via case studies.
