Video Course: Integrated Evaluation and Treatment Strategies

Kerry D'Ambrogio

Many health-care professionals understand how to perform the individual techniques taught in manual therapy courses but they have a difficult time knowing which techniques to use, when to use them, and how to integrate them during a treatment session. This presentation will focus on evaluation and treatment principles and causes of somatic dysfunction, and will focus on four key questions: How do I decide which part of the body to start my treatment on? How do I decide which techniques to use: muscle, fascial, joint, or fluids? How do I decide which part of the body to go to next? How do I decide when the treatment is over? In the video portion of the presentation, you will learn about applying the evaluation and treatment principles learned in a treatment session. Muscle Energy Techniques, Positional Release Therapy, Osteoarticular Techniques, and Fluid Drainage Techniques will be demonstrated.
