Manual therapy is evidence-based for restoring mobility and alleviating pain. What many clinicians don’t emphasize correctly is the patient’s role in their recovery. For decades, manual therapy, like physical agents, was (and still is) promoted as a fix, rather than a means to an end.

In this 1 hour online course, Dr. Erson Religioso III, DPT, FAAOMPT, founder of The Eclectic Approach and Modern Manual Therapy goes over how to be true to evidenced-based care, and how to use manual therapy in an active, patient empowering approach to rehabilitation.

Upon completion of this course, you will be able to

  • Explain why the effects of manual therapy are neurophysiologic rather than mechanical
  • Use the Recovery Timeline Concept to help a patient understand their role in recovery
  • Simplify the home exercise program and use repeated motions at the correct therapeutic dose
  • Add 2 simple things to the home program to further enhance recovery
