MTX: Skilled Integration of Manual Therapy and Exercise

$495.00

Improve exercise prescription along the continuum of the rehab process. Principles of exercise are reviewed and analyzed regarding implementation, namely through “phase progression.” The ability to make initial intervention choices and HEP prescription more impactful will be strengthened by matching common manual interventions and impairments to therapeutic exercise to maximize intersession gains. Advanced exercise progressions will be demonstrated and clinical reasoning will be explained so that the concept of “phase progression” is applied. Techniques to help bridge gaps in treatment progression will be discussed, specifically, PNF will be shown as an intervention to progress from passive manual intervention to independent active movement.

Course Rationale

This course will provide attendees with a relevant review of the application of therapeutic exercise including loading and implementation during the phases of rehabilitation.  Upon completing this course, participants will have a deeper understanding of how to match manual therapy that has been effective at addressing the patient’s chief complaint with therapeutic exercise and activities that are meant to maximize patient function and independence. This deeper understanding will allow the participant to more completely and fully assess and manage patients who benefit from manual therapy.  This course will provide participants with the working knowledge to be able to assess effectiveness of interventions through the use of the test – treat- re-test approach, this will allow participants to develop improved plans of care and exercise progressions for their patients with musculoskeletal complaints.

Course Objective

1. By the end of the course, the participants will be able to list 5 principles of exercise loading
2. By the end of the course, given a case study on the cervical spine, participants will demonstrate how to integrate 3 principles of exercise loading into a treatment protocol
3. By the end of the course, given a case study of a patient presenting with cervical spine pain, participants will be able to verbally justify 1 manual and 1 exercise intervention citing current evidence.
4. By the end of the course, given case examples, participants will be able to correctly identify 5 patient responses to loading that would require modification.
5. By the end of the course participants will be able to verbalize 2 feedback mechanisms for patient education regarding exercise performance.
6. By the end of the course, given a specific manual therapy technique, participants will be able to independently select an exercise that corresponds in order to maximize improvements of the comparable sign impairment within session.
7. By the end of the course, participants will correctly describe 1 parameter each for using resistance training to improve: strength, power, and endurance.
