Applied Movement Control

CEU’s: Pending

Counts towards: COMT & Manual Therapy Fellowship

Course Description: This course will present a contemporary approach to managing neuromuscular dysfunction.   Emphasis will be placed on integrating human biomechanics, myofascial kinetic chains and respiration enabling the clinician to utilize a multi-planar examination approach that respects multi-systems and environmental demands placed on human movement system.  Utilizing theoretical concepts as well as evidence-guided principles for examination and treatment, discussions will focus on related issues pertaining to clinical reasoning and decision making involving the whole individual, multiple systems, and tri-planar muscle and joint assessment.  The 2-day live course will include structured laboratory sessions that provide hands-on instruction in pertinent assessment and treatment techniques.

Course Presenters:

Chris Roosa, PT, DPT, OCS

Mike Timko, MS, PT, FAAOMPT
