The Physical therapist will be able to apply their advanced knowledge of anatomy, pathomechanics and medicine to the recognition of clusters in the clinical setting

Back to Top

NAIOMT 740 Throacic Region w/ Manipulation
(21 hours)
This three-day course will focus on the thoracic region, spinal and costal joints. It will include the
diagnosis, biomechanical examinations and the manual physical therapy treatment of the thoracic and
costal articulations with mobilization and manipulation (thrust). Currently available literature and
evidence for examination and intervention will be discussed.

NAIOMT 800 *Level IV Advanced Spinal Techniques
(varies--typically 42 hours)
Integration of high-velocity low-amplitude (thrust) techniques into the total patient care, with emphasis on the spine, pelvic girdle and ribs. Only students who have demonstrated an appropriate level of knowledge and skill by examination are admitted into this course.

(*Reserved for those students who have passed the NAIOMT Level III written exam, case studies, and a pre-course assesment or its equivalent. Taught only in those states that have no licensing restrictions on spinal manipulation)

NAIOMT SPECIALTY CLASSES
NAIOMT specialty courses offer in-depth study beyond the curriculum of our core courses, focusing on different additional theory and approaches. Specialty courses generally do not have prerequisites, but please check each course for details. Below are examples of courses offered by NAIOMT. NAIOMT also co-sponsors courses given by other medical and physical therapy experts.

NAIOMT 555 Spinal Instability: efficient clinical approaches
Instructors: Ann Porter Hoke and Bill O'Grady.
This two-day lecture-demonstration workshop will review the current thoughts on clinical spinal instability, its possible etiology, efficient Physical Therapy assessment and intervention methods and communication of diagnosis and outcomes. The fourteen-hour course will include a three-hour lab session.

NAIOMT 560 Subacute MVA: efficient clinical approaches
Instructors: David Deppeler and Ann Porter Hoke.
This 2-day workshop will update the course participant on current research, intervention philosophies and triage strategies for the patient or client in the subacute phase of whiplash-associated disorders of the cervical ? thoracic region. This course attempts to answer the question ?why are some people still hurting at 6 weeks, and how can the physical therapist efficiently and effectively manage the problem?

Back to Top

NAIOMT 650 Medical Screening: medical and musculoskelaetal differential diagnosis including nutrition
Instructor: David Musnick, MD
This course will teach theoretical and practical medical screening for physical therapists, with emphasis on abdominal, cardiovascular, endocrine, orthopedic, oncological, pulmonary, renal, reproductive, rheumatological systems and drug side effects. The course will explore reasons for chronic pain, non-resolving spinal pain syndromes, and provide information on how nutritional supplements are being used in disease prevention and treatment.

NAIOMT 655 The Complex Patient: factors influencing pain and healing
Instructor: David Musnick, MD
This is a one day course of lecture, assessment forms and physical exam technique that will cover the factors that will lead your patients to develop or persist with Chronic pain or heal too slowly. Dr Musnick is an extremely motivating and skilled teacher and will cover the following topics including history and assessment forms and new treatment strategies:Chronic pain and Sensitization (Neurophysiology and treatments), Chronic and Neuropathic Pain topical gels and treatment, Scar Dysfunction(history, physical exam and treatment), Fibromyalgia, Fatigue Syndromes, Memory and Cognitive Dysfunction, Nutritional Considerations for Healing Musculoskeletal Tissues and Sleep Dysfunction

NAIOMT 665 Ankle and Foot
Instructor: Kathy Stupansky
A two-day course focused on the foot, ankle and tibiofibular joints focuses on differential diagnosis,manual therapy assessment and treatment, including all grades of mobilization/manipulation and reviews efficient home interventions. The course will include a review of traumatic injuries, and analysis of the need for stabilization, but orthotics will not be a focus of this course.
NAIOMT 670 Manual Therapy for the Myofascial System
Instructor: Laurie Mclaughlin
This course examines the significant role that assessment and treatment of the fascial system can playin patients with orthopaedic conditions. Current knowledge of fascial anatomy and physiology areintroduced and the relevance to mechanical dysfunction explored. ?Manual Therapy for the Fascia?involves the practical application of current knowledge in neurodynamics, myofascial release,neurophysiological treatment techniques, and manual therapy.

NAIOMT 675 Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction
Instructor: Alexa Dobbs
The explanation for the symptoms of temporomandibular joint dysfunction may be mechanical or neuro-physiological, genetic or acquired. In many cases, the cervical spine is the primary source of cephalic symptoms. The focus of this discussion and practical two-day workshop will be on how to efficiently scan the potential causal systems. The practitioner will then be able to create a working hypothesis and plan of intervention.

NAIOMT 750 The Thoracic Spine: a biomechanical approach.
Instructor: Diane Lee
Research of the function of the thorax has been limited compared to research on low back and pelvis. The principles for the Integrated Model of Joint Function developed for the pelvis by Lee and Vleeming can be applied to the thorax and can be a good starting point for the clinican, even thought it is not yet based in scientific research. This two-day course will clinically apply all 4 levels of the model including form and force closure, motor control and emotions and awareness for immediate clinical application.

NAIOMT 760 The Shoulder Girdle
Instructor: NAIOMT Faculty
This two-day course is designed to review the function of the multiple structures that compose the shoulder girdle, and evaluate and differentiate the biomechanical integrity of each component. The diligent practitioner will be able to differentiate musculoskeletal from non-musculoskeltal conditions utilizing clinical tests developed in recent year, and apply innovative techniques. This course was designed by Cliff Fowler.

NAIOMT 770 Post Motor Vehicle Accident Cervical Dysfunction: the first six months
Instructor: Jim Meadows
The assessment and management of the post motor vehicle accident patient can be very rewarding providing the critical period of the first three months is appropriately utilized by the physical therapist. This 3 day program is intended to help the therapist establish a safe, effective and progressive treatment program that is individually based and sensitive to the changes, both histological and blomechanical, in the patient due to the trauma, the treatment and the process of time. The course will emphasize the patient's pivotal role in his or her recovery as well as the judicious application of physical therapy at appropriate stages of the recovery. The course will teach the detailed anatomy, neuro anatomy, and normal and abnormal histology and biomechanics of the cervical spine and cranium as they pertain to post MVA victims, together with practical lab sessions of assessment and treatment techniques for the acute, sub acute and non acute post traumatic cervical spine.

NAIOMT 775 Headaches, Dizziness and Chronic Neck Pain
Instructor: Jim Meadows
Why is whiplash often so devastating, and why is its victim so difficult to treat? This 3-day course will attempt to discuss these issues in order that there will be safe and effective management of the long-term patient, with stalled recovery restarted and slow recovery accelerated. The course reviews the neuroanatomical and physiological basis for headache, dizziness and chronic neck pain, and teaches methods of assessment and treatment integration.
