Manual Therapy Certification Curriculum
IAMT has developed a unique curriculum of manual therapy courses specifically designed to provide clinicians with a solid foundation in both examination and treatment. Our curriculum is centered around clinical reasoning skills and is strongly evidence-based. Our teaching model ensures the therapist focuses not only on the source of the patient’s symptoms but also the causative factors. A variety of eclectic manual therapy and exercise interventions are taught by expert clinicians throughout our curriculum with a strong emphasis on patient outcomes and function achieved through constant assessment. The certification program consists of 8 Manual Therapy courses and upon completion candidates will be eligible to sit for IAMT’s COMT exam. These courses may also be taken independently of the certification curriculum.

Specialty Courses
IAMT is proud to provide advanced specialty courses that encompass a variety of manual therapy and sports medicine topics including: Advanced Sports Medicine Upper Extremity, Advanced Sports Medicine Lower Extremity, Manual Therapy Tool Kit, Trigger Point Dry Needling, Pelvic Floor for the Manual Therapist and many others. We will continue to offer new and exciting educational opportunities through our network of world renowned experts. For a list of our current panel of talented US and international instructors, please refer to the “Our Experts” section of our website.

Trigger Point Dry Needling
IAMT's Dry Needling curriculum focuses delivering a well-rounded clinical reasoning approach to help enhance your patient outcomes. We provide a 3 level course curriculum to train PTs in a variety of dry needling techniques to be utilized with a wide range of patients. Therapists that successfully complete Dry Needling Level 1, Dry Needling Level 2, and Advanced Dry Needling Level 3 will receive their Certification in Dry Needling (CDNT). Therapists that complete Level 1 and Level 2 will receive a “Certificate of Completion” after each course.
