Folsom Physical Therapy
This four-day course is the third in the series of courses constituting the next generation of Folsom Physical Therapy OMT continuing education. Our courses focus on development of critical skills necessary to enhance clinical confidence, efficiency and professional fulfillment in today’s challenging medical-economic environment.
The goal of this course is to improve the clinician’s confidence, ease of practice, effectiveness and sense of professional fulfillment in the treatment of peripheral upper quadrant dysfunction.
Orthopedic PT clinical expertise requires understanding of the interplay between body systems and the ability to interpret the contribution of each to the patient’s overall presentation. As such, instruction will include pertinent anatomy and pathology associated with, and interplay between, the lymphatic, fascial, and arthro-neuro-motor systems. Clinical skill development will focus on sharpening reasoning, observation, manual and intervention proficiency.
For the full course description, please visit our Upper Quadrant with Focus on the Extremity page.
Participants should wear clothing that allows visual and manual access to the entire spine and extremities. Participation in our preceding courses is strongly recommended but not required prior to participation in this course.
