Clinical Manual Therapy

CMT 1: Basic Spine Clinical Mobilization Maitland approach and more 

Learning Outcomes; conduct an accurate subjective examination and physical examination of the cervical, thoracic and lumbar spine as described by G. Maitland and others. Feel the variations of resistances to passive movements, and apply these variations to the assessment and treatment of patients. Differences of treating pain and stiffness, and selecting the most effective treatment and examination techniques. Learn grade I, II, III, IV& V manipulation Use clinical hypothesis and clinical reason.

CMT N: Neurodynamics/Neuromobilization. Pain Peripheral and Central Sensitization + 

Learning outcomes; this seminar provides a broad introduction to the concept of mobilization of the nervous system. The nervous system is presented as a mobile and elastic structure worthy of physical examination in many spinal and peripheral problems. Description of the functional anatomy of the nervous system. Examination of the nervous system by conduction test, nerve palpation and neurodynamic test. Analyze pain and peripheral and central sensitization. Clinical intervention utilizing neuromobilization techniques.
