Course Description: This is a case-based course that will integrate both the biomechanical and manual physical therapy intervention involving high acceleration and low amplitude thrust techniques of the listed joints in extremities. The course will include review and teaching of current evidence biased literature and application of safety screening and performance of intervention with the goal of safe, effective and efficient treatment.
Audience: Physical Therapist
Pre-Requisites: Licensed Physical Therapist (copy of current PT license required)
