COURSE DESCRIPTION:

May be taken as first course in the series. Introduction to the Maitland-Australian concept of assessment and treatmentfortheSpine,includingpeer-reviewedsupportingevidence.70%Laboratory.EmphasisisontheCervical, Thoracic(includingribarticulations)andLumbarspine.Neurodynamicassessmentsareintroducedfortheupper and lower limbs. Principles of assessment/treatment are addressed in supervised lab sessions with live patient demonstrations. Highly specific subjective & objective physical examination techniques are taught. Treatment methods are practiced extensively in lab sessions with direct Instructor feedback to ensure skill acquisition. Techniques of assessment and treatment include physiological and accessory movements, which are directed veryspecificallytoindividualspinalsegments.IncludesrequiredHomeStudycoursecomponentofapproximately

11.7 hours. A more detailed description is available on the MAPS website atwww.ozpt.com.
