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.
Myofascial Treatment and Taping Applications
This course covers clinical examination and treatment of the soft tissue components of the musculoskeletal and peripheral nervous system. This course focuses on soft tissue assessment in regards to its influence on common musculoskeletal conditions such as tendonopathy, myofascial pain syndromes and associated muscle guarding that occurs with common injuries. It is primarily hands on and focuses on surface anatomy palpation, deep palpation of all major muscle groups and manual therapy soft tissue mobilization techniques designed to reduce pain, improve mobility and improve function throughout the entire body. Complimentary to the hands on component of this course is the introduction to basic taping techniques designed to offload soft tissue, inhibit or facilitate the firing of specific muscles and help with proprioception of specific movement patterns throughout the body.
