INTEGRATIVE MANUAL THERAPY

A 2 day lab-based course (14 CEUs) that integrates Myofascial Trigger point deactivation techniques (including IASTM) with muscle energy, spinal manipulation, and directional preference exercises.


The purpose of this course is to teach Licensed Practitioners (PT, PTA, ATC, OT, OTA, Chiropractors, Massage Therapists) to integrate different Manual therapy treatments with key Evidence-based findings.  Learn the manual therapy techniques that have been shown to be most effective to reduce pain.  Instrument Assisted Soft-tissue Mobilization will be utilized with use of the Edge tool and Chinese cupping sets.  This course will also include manipulation of the spine (HVLAT) and directional preference exercises.  There will be extensive hands-on lab time in order to practice and refine your manual therapy skills.

The course will be taught by two instructors (Dr. Eric Jorde and Dr. Alex Siyufy) for extensive hands-on experience. Early bird price is $550 and student/new clinician price is $350.
