Description

Desk jobs.  Devices.  Poor posture.  It’s no surprise that you see patients with neck pain so frequently.  Theresa Schmidt, PT, DPT, MS, OCS, LMT, CEAS explores tried and true methods for treating this population – a framework that directly ties evidence-based interventions to the specific diagnostic category of the patient: 

  • Quickly narrow in on exactly which exam tools are the best fit  
  • Effectively customize your treatment based on the specific diagnostic category 
  • Critical considerations for treating acute vs subacute vs chronic neck pain 
  • Which diagnoses respond better to manipulation vs manual therapy or exercise 

You’ll learn which interventions are backed by research for each of the most common ailments including cervicalgia, headaches, cervicocranial syndrome, thoracic spinal pain, cervical strain/sprain and more!  In a world where being reimbursed is becoming harder and harder, this fast-paced and in-depth training will pave the way for streamlined treatment, effective documentation and optimized reimbursement.  You’ll develop a concise approach for selecting the gold standard treatment: tools and techniques that you can immediately implement into your practice to improve outcomes.
