Pillars of Manual Medicine

Learn the Why, When and How of Treating Low Back Pain

With Evidence-Based, Conservative Techniques, Approaches and Systems


We invite you to join a diverse group of practitioners from around the globe as we discuss our strengths, weaknesses and opportunities for treating musculoskeletal conditions and improving the lives of the patients we serve.

The people involved in this conference want to move the bar forward as it relates to manual medicine. Each has a strong belief that conservative manual and movement-driven healthcare should be a primary method of treatment for many people in pain yet there is so much we still do not know and so much more we can do to help people.

During our panel discussions, you'll have an opportunity to ask questions to some of the giants in the world of physical medicine, while listening to real-world case studies and patient evaluations and treatment.

The open dialogue will provide the opportunity for all attendees to discuss the various treatment approaches presented and differing strategies for addressing the patient's condition.

We can't wait to have you join us!

Fascial Manipulation (Level 1A)

Friday 6:30pm - 10:30pm and Saturday/Sunday 8am - 6pm

Presented by: Warren Hammer, DC, MS, DABCO

The mechanoreceptors in muscles and joints convey information about the posture and movements of the body and thereby play an important role in proprioception and motor control” (1). Probably the most important breakthrough in soft tissue treatment is that important receptors, especially the muscle spindle cells that are responsible for normal muscle control, and coordination are not in the muscle, but in the fascia within the muscle. Most soft tissue techniques deal with a form of stretching and strengthening which of course is necessary, but our total treatment of neuromusculoskeletal problems must include an organized method of evaluating and treating the fascial system. read more...


Movement System Impairment Syndromes: Lumbopelvic Course

Saturday/Sunday - 9am - 5pm

Presented by: Shirley Sahrmann, PT, PhD, FAPTA


The MSI syndromes were developed by Shirley Sahrmann, PT, PhD and her colleagues. These syndromes are described in her books, Diagnosis and Treatment of Movement Impairment Syndromes and Movement System Impairment Syndromes of the Extremities, Cervical and Thoracic Spine.

Our MSI courses teach you to identify faulty alignment, movement patterns, and muscle imbalances using observation of movement as well as muscle length and strength testing. You will also learn how to alleviate and prevent mechanical musculoskeletal pain through treatment focused on the restoration of optimal alignment and appropriate movement patterns.


Maitland-Australian Physiotherapy Seminars: Lower Quarter Course

Saturday/Sunday: 8am - 5pm

Presented by: Chris Showalter, PT, DPT, OCS, COMT, FAAOMPT

The Maitland-Australian approach is world renowned and the cornerstone of modern day Evidence-Based Orthopedic Manual Therapy.

First developed by the famous Australian Physiotherapist and co-founderof IFOMPT(1), Geoffrey Maitland, the Maitland-Australian approach was introduced to the U.S. by MAPS founder Robert Sprague, PT, PhD, GDMT, COMT, FAAOMPT.

This approach is based primarily on the assessment and treatment of the patient’s signs/symptoms, respecting the diagnosis, understanding the pathology and using biomechanical knowledge when applicable. Biomechanical theory plays only a small role. The examination and subsequent treatment is intended to gently provoke the patient’s actual symptoms and thus confirm the source and specific tissues potentially at fault. Carefully graded osteokinematic (physiological) and arthrokinematic (accessory) passive mobilization techniques are performed to reproduce the pain of a stiffness disorder (pathomechanical) to restore normal movement and mechanics, OR to reduce/eliminate the patient’s pain dominant disorder (pathophysiological) related to inflammation or other pathophysiological processes.


Neurodynamics Lower Quarter 1

Saturday/Sunday - 8:30am - 5:30pm

Presented by: Michael Shacklock, DipPhysio, MAppSc, FACP


  • general neurodynamic principles applied to the entire body and specifically the lower quarter, including the lumbar spine, hip and piriformis syndrome, hamstring injury and heel pain due to tibial and medial calcaneal nerve disorders
  • classifications of structures and mechanisms for diagnosis and treatment
  • neurodynamic sequencing – a mechanism that can be used to make neurodynamic technique more specific than in the past
  • how to differentiate nerve from other tissues with mechanical testing
  • how to make diagnosis and treatment more specific than before.
