Clinical Manual Therapy with Osteopathy Techniques

Overview

The only manual therapy techniques certification series that discusses evidence informed manual therapy from holistic views of the articular, myogenic and neurogenic perspective taught by a licensed physiotherapist trained in Australia who is also a qualified Osteopath.

The Clinical Manual Therapy program series which consists of 5 modules of 3 days duration per module, covering the Lumbopelvic complex, Cranium-Cervical complex, Thoracic-rib complex, lower quadrant and upper quadrant. Participants are encouraged to complete within a 18 -36 months period. Each module will run at a 3-6 months interval.

Participants can choose to attend each workshop singularly with a certificate of attendance provided but are encouraged to attend all 5 modules to fully appreciate how the body works as a unit. They will also be issued a Certificate in Clinical Manual Therapy (CCMT) upon completion of a case study (800- 1000 words) within 2 months after the 5th workshop.

 

Module 1: Lumpopelvic Complex (3 days)

Complaints of lumbopelvic pain and dysfunction are the most commonly encountered by clinicians. In addition, medical diagnosis is often unclear and specific structural diagnosis has not proven to correlate with clinical symptoms. This workshop examine the kinetic linkage of the lumbar spine, sacroiliac joint (SIJ), hip and the pelvic musculature.

  • Participants will be taught how to:
  • Differential diagnosis between lumbar spine and SIJ dysfunction
  • Apply articular assessments and treatment techniques for the lumbar spine, pelvic complex and SIJ, based on the combination of Maitland, Kaltenborn, Brian Edwards, Mulligan and Osteopathic concepts
  • Apply different assessments and treatment techniques for the lumbopelvic complex
  • Apply myogenic assessments and treatment techniques for the SIJ and lumbar spinal segments
  • Exercise based therapy using form/force closure and movement functions for the lumbopelvic complex.

 

Module 2: Cervico-cranium complex (3 days)

This workshop examines the relationship of the cervical spine, hyoid, temporomandibular joint (TMJ), shoulder complex, cranium and dura mater.

Participants will be taught:

  • Differential diagnosis between the cervical spine, TMJ, shoulder and cranium dysfunctions
  • Apply articular assessments and treatment techniques for the cervical spine, TMJ and cranium based on the combination of Maitland, Kaltenborn, Brian Edwards, Mulligan and Osteopathic concepts
  • Apply assessments and treatment techniques for the TMJ, shoulder and cervical region – Differential diagnosis for cervicogenic headache and dizziness
  • Apply assessments and treatment techniques for cervicogenic headache and dizziness
  • Exercise based therapy for the cervico-cranium and TMJ, based on movement disorder.

 

Module 3: Thoracic spine and rib complex (3 days)

This workshop looks at the thoracic rings, which comprises of the thoracic spine, ribs, sternum and myogenic structures, diaphragm and pleural membrane.

Participants will be taught:

  • Differential diagnosis between the thoracic, shoulder and cervical dysfunctions
  • Apply articular assessments and treatment techniques for the thoracic spine based on the combination of Maitland, Kaltenborn, Brian Edwards, Mulligan and Osteopathic concepts
  • Exercise based therapy using form/force closure and movement functions for the thoracic rings

 

Module 4: Lower quadrant complex (3 days)

Hip, knee and ankle disorders are commonly treated by therapists and medical doctors. Putting aside direct traumatic causes, clinically, majority of these symptoms can be reflection of dysfunction from the lumbar plexus and/or surrounding connective tissues. Understanding the mechanical linkage of the lumbopelvic complex to the lower quadrant is the key for effective treatment and management of lower limbs disorders. This workshop links the lumbopelvic complex to the dysfunction seen in the lower limbs.

Participants will be taught:

  • The kinetic link of the lumbopelvic structures to dysfunctions of the lower limbs
  • Manual assessments and treatment techniques for the hip, knee and ankle
  • Neurodynamic and neural mobilisation techniques for the lower limbs
  • Exercise based therapy for the lower limbs
  • Correction of the lower quadrant kinetic chain dysfunction

 

Module 5: The upper quadrant (3 days)

Upper limb disorders are commonly a reflection of the cervico-cranium and neural structural dysfunction. This workshop examines the cervico-cranium complex to upper limb disorders.

Participants will be taught:

  • The kinetic link of the cervico-cranium complex to the upper limbs
  • Manual therapy techniques for the shoulder, elbow and wrist
  • Fascia assessment and treatment techniques for the upper limbs
  • Neurodynamic and neural membrane assessments and treatment techniques for the upper limbs
  • Cranium – fascia assessments and treatment techniques for the cranium and intracranium
  • Exercise based therapy for the upper quadrant

Module 5 accreditation 14.25 points

 

Eligibility

The workshops are designed for licensed healthcare practitioners, who are allowed to use manipulative techniques in their practice and jurisdiction, including physicians and physician assistants, dentists, physical therapists, osteopaths and chiropractors.

All modules could be taken independently in any order. The modules are mainly practical in nature and participants are expected to participate in the hands-on portion of the course.

Massage therapists, bodyworkers, personal trainers, neuromuscular therapists, physical therapy assistants, occupational therapists, and occupational therapy assistants are encouraged to attend courses offered through the Manual Trigger Point Therapy Program.
 

Accreditations
