About the Orthopedic Manual Physical Therapy Series (OMPTS)

IMG_5650PrintOrthopedic Manual Physical Therapy Series

This series of continuing education programs is based on a clinical reasoning model and emphasizes evidence-based examination and treatment.  The course series covers all body regions and incorporates a variety of interventions.

The goal of the series is to provide the physical therapist with a comprehensive continuing professional education course and fully prepare them for the ABPTS Orthopedic Clinical Specialty Examination.  

This framework will enable the participant to practice in a more efficient and focused manner through the development of clinical skills and a clinical reasoning thought process.

The student to instructor (7:1 max), repetition of examination and treatment techniques, and the opportunity to practice clinical reasoning skills will enhance comprehension and retention.

Case studies will assist with clinical pattern formation along with the integration of different manual therapy approaches.

The use of continuous open discussion will facilitate student/instructor feedback.

The course series will provide the clinician with the opportunity to develop the tools to learn from every patient they encounter.
