Using OMT and Sports Skills to Maximize Outcome for Cervico-Thoracic and Shoulder Painful Conditions - from the Clinic to the Athletic Field

Physical Therapy


Emerging evidence suggests that multimodal (manual therapy and exercise) therapy is effective while high utilization of care may actually produce poorer results for neck pain. This implies efficient utilization of a multimodal intervention may maximize outcome. Most OMT and sports movement exam and treatment approaches have been published in isolation, but these were not widely presented in combination to optimize clinical and sports rehabilitation results. This session aims to fast track the real-time differentiation and verification of OMT modifiable movement impairments from cervico-thoracic and shoulder regions, thereby achieving desired outcomes from the clinic to the athletic field.
