Extremity Management

Current best evidence in the physical therapist’s management of the most common extremity syndromes.

Manual Therapy Course

This seminar covers current best evidence in the physical therapist’s management of the most common extremity syndromes seen in a general outpatient orthopedic practice. A special emphasis will be placed on fitness forward treatment progression and exercise prescription.

We will challenge several traditional philosophies regarding the assessment and treatment of orthopedic conditions. The laboratory component will focus on enhancing manual therapy and exercise skills, while the lectures will highlight the most up to date literature in extremity management.

As with all ICE courses, we strive to maintain a 15:1 student:teacher ratio or better.
