The two-day format provides ample time to develop all the skills you need to address a wide range of pain problems.
About the Instructor:
"It’s empowering to know my work can help improve someone’s quality of life. When I began, I remember guessing at what was injured, but learning Orthopedic Manual Therapy changed that. For me, the great thing about these skills is understanding exactly what is injured, especially in the shoulder, where injuries rarely hurt at the source. Finding out that the shoulder refers pain in peculiar ways changed everything. The shoulder is very complex, but with these skills, the complexity melts away. When you can put your finger on the distal end of the supraspinatus tendon, you can treat it. I teach you how to palpate every major injured structure in the shoulder, so you don’t have to guess where it is. Once you understand how to precisely assess and effectively treat a person’s injury, they will be your client for life." - Ben Benjamin Ph.D.
