In this course, Jack Stagge P.T., O.C.S., FAAOMPT will cover in depth topics that are introduced in both the Upper Quarter and Lower Quarter Basic Courses. Advanced concepts and techniques that will allow the participant to treat even the most difficult patients will be presented. Advanced considerations in treatment include the use of T.E.N.S., deprovocation/desensitization, progressive loading, and mirror image, among other advanced treatment techniques. Emphasis of specific manual technique application, sequencing of treatment, medical considerations, and advanced techniques for desensitization and deprovocation will allow for the fine tuning of participant’s skills, and enable improved results. Further thoughts about patient specificity, regional intervention, and the therapist’s role in treatment of these complex patients will also be presented, and the mechanical and physiological basis for treatment will be discussed to allow for a more evidenced base approach.
