Course Details

This oral practical examination allows the participant to demonstrate proficiency in clinical reasoning and differential diagnosis, including properly screening for serious pathology.  The examination will focus on clinical reasoning and the quadrant inter-relationships. Testing content will include mobilization/ manipulation (thrust) to joint and soft tissue techniques to all parts of the appendicular/extremity and axial/spinal skeleton, in addition to shoulder and pelvic girdles, as well as the temporomandibular joint. The participant will defend each technique in terms of safety, specificity and grade and will articulate to the panel the neuromuscular reeducation and therapeutic exercises utilized to enhance the patient’s prognosis.
