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.
This course is designed to enhance a physical therapists ability to develop and prescribe an individualized exercise program of the spine and extremities for the patient’s specific presentation. The course considers normal tissue healing times, the optimum stimulus for regeneration and repair of each specific tissue. Emphasis is placed on histology, neurology, exercise dosage, biomechanics, and pathology for various musculoskeletal conditions. A thorough understanding of these principles prepares the physical therapist to design an appropriate exercise program in order to achieve optimum functional outcomes. Extensive lab time is provided for practice of exercise prescription for all regions of the spine and extremities. This course is designed to complement the manual therapy and clinical reasoning treatment approach.
