MT- 2: Essential Spinal Seminar

Course Description: May be taken as first course in the series. Introduction to the Maitland-Australian concept of assessment and treatment for the Spine. Emphasis is on the Cervical, Thoracic (including rib articulations) and Lumbar spine. Neurodynamic assessments are introduced. Principles of assessment/treatment are addressed in supervised lab sessions with live patient demonstrations. Management of pain-dominant (pathophysiological) and stiffness-dominant (pathomechanical) disorders are taught extensively. Techniques of assessment and treatment include physiological and accessory movements, which are directed very specifically to individual spinal segments. Includes required Home Study course component of approximately 11.7 hours.


Presenter:  Carla Franck, PT, DPT, OCS, FAAOMPT                                                                 


Course Objectives: Course participants upon completion will be able to:

  • Accurately differentiate between normal and abnormal resistance to passive spinal movement using accessory & physiological examination/treatment techniques. Demonstrate at least one example.

  • Integrate the course materials to select, properly apply, and defend selection of four different grades of passive movement to spinal regions. Demonstrate at least one example.

  • Understand, discuss, and explain Maitland’s clinical reasoning model, including eight clinical hypothesis categories per M. Jones and D. Rivett, and correctly demonstrate integration of these concepts into an evidence-based clinical reasoning model.

  • Synthesize and correctly apply and defend principles of treating pain and stiffness as per Maitland and other manual PTs. Demonstrate at least one example.

  • Formulate, select and defend the most effective treatment & examination techniques for the peripheral patient based upon clinical assessment and clinical reasoning, rather than theoretical protocols. Learner will be able to demonstrate at least once.

  • Develop and refine skills in differential assessment and diagnosis. Demonstrate at least one example.

  • Develop, refine and accurately demonstrate the ability to quickly and effectively treat orthopedic conditions using at least one known manual therapy technique.

  • Develop, refine, demonstrate and accurately defend at least one modified or newly created effective    manual therapy technique for the treatment of orthopedic conditions.
