Video Course: Overview of Integrated Manual Therapy

James Waslaski

Integrated manual therapy brings together the work of leading therapists to eliminate the cause of complicated pain conditions, rather than treating just the clinical symptoms. This presentation will bridge the gap between massage therapy, athletic training, physical therapy, osteopathic medicine, chiropractic, and personal training. This dynamic multimedia presentation will take you inside the human body to simplify the treatment of complicated musculoskeletal pain conditions, with frozen shoulders and hips used to illustrate the concepts. You will learn the critical importance of understanding ascending and descending syndromes and how to assess and eliminate multiple nerve crush phenomenon.
