Course Description: 

This course presents necessary physiological principles, biomechanics, body mechanics, and clinically relevant techniques for the safe and effective application of joint mobilization as part of a treatment plan for musculoskeletal disorders of the joints of the extremities. Lab portions of the course teaches techniques that are clinically applicable and safe for both the patient and therapist.


Clinicians of all experience levels and specialties can benefit from this course. Novice clinicians and students will learn how to assess joint mobility in an integrated and efficient manner and connect the findings to treatment. Experienced clinicians will find new ways to apply manual techniques. All levels will benefit from the direct connection of principles to application. All therapists who treat musculoskeletal conditions at any level of acuity can easily apply the content of this course.


Speakers: Michael Duchaj, PT, MPT, ATC & Matthew Miller, MS, PT/ OTC, ATC


Course Objectives:

Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Understand indications, precautions, and contraindications for application of joint mobilization techniques as part of a comprehensive treatment plan for musculoskeletal disorders of the extremities.

  • Safely provide patient treatment relative to soft tissue healing principles and appropriate joint mobilization application when given the level of acuity and current joint mobility.
  • Systematically perform passive accessory mobility tests of the peripheral joints.
  • Apply knowledge of anatomy, arthrokinematics, and osteokinematics to link treatments to outcomes.
  • Safely and effectively demonstrate joint mobilization techniques at all clinically appropriate grades for the joints of the extremities.
  • Safely and effectively integrate joint mobilization and other treatment techniques to address musculoskeletal disorders of the extremities.

Course material will be provided in a bound format to all participants.
