Course Description:

Clinical Examination and Manual Therapy of the Acute Lumbar Spine and SI Joint

This hybrid (8 hrs of online content plus 2 day live) IAOM-US course is appropriate for ATs, PT’s & PTA’s.  The IAOM-US teaches that the essential starting point for orthopedic care is accurate clinical diagnosis.  IAOM courses and resources present effective manual orthopedic techniques established by leaders in the field.  Scientific and clinical research provides the foundation for the entire program. This is important because a systematic approach is needed to apply proper diagnostic reasoning and produce a clear course of treatment in the shortest period of time.

The IAOM online Acute Lumbar Spine course takes an in-depth look at lumbar spine pathoanatomy, acute disc pathology, basic clinical examination, basic clinical examination interpretation, management suggestions for acute pathology, traction, overall management of low back pain, pathoanatomy of the Sacroiliac Joint, clinical examination of the SI joint and management suggestions of the SI Joint.

Also covered in the LIVE course is bony architecture, lateral recess of the spinal canal, the lumbar intervertebral disc and capsuloligamentous structures:

The online portion of this course is available 24/7. It is segmented into lecture modules plus module assessments to gauge your understanding (must meet a minimum score prior to moving to the next module). You are able to start and stop your viewing time as needed.

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.
