Credit Hours: 1
Management strategies for low back and neck pain relief, improvement in motor skill performance, and return to functional activities will be demonstrated.  Discharge planning will be investigated for this patient population.  Manual therapy for motion impairments and spinal stabilization strategies are important modules of this course.  The various schools of thought related to manual therapy are examined along with the analysis of the evidence pertaining to the use of manipulation.  Risks, adverse reactions and contraindications are considered.  This course will also explore differential diagnosis and clinical reasoning when managing common injuries seen in athletic populations.  Motion performance and analysis will be discussed and performed as well as the development of treatment plans based on clinical and video analysis.  The latest evidence of continued management of progression strategies and return to sport criteria will also be reviewed and discussed.
