Because we like to spend more time during the live portion of a NAIOMT course, emphasizing hands-on, case based material, we utilize Primal Pictures in our online pre-course modules. Below is an example video, reviewing some pertinent anatomy of the cervical spine.
In the manual therapy video below, NAIOMT’s Stacy Soappman demonstrates the normal variance in the alar ligament testing
If you have any questions at all, please don't hesitate to connect with Stacy on Twitter, or address them in person at one of our upcoming Cervical Spine courses, which can be taken in any order convenient to you. Second and third year PT students enjoy a significant discount too!
During a Cervical Spine I class, one of our course participants who had surgery for a cervical myleopathy still presents with upper motor neuron signs (although diminished since the surgery). He allowed us to film them so fellow PTs can see what babinski, clonus, hoffmans sign and pronator rigidity present like.
Did you know you can earn your CMPT certification in just one year? Really. After a cohort of PTs thrived in and successfully completed NAIOMT’s accelerated program in San Diego in 2018, we have decided to offer this opportunity again this year.
Here’s what one participant had to say about last year’s program:
“I joined as a PT in my first couple years of practice, and the clinical reasoning skills I learned as well as the finessed treatment and assessment techniques have significantly improved my success and confidence.” -Julie Dunn
Our accelerated program is designed to help you get through NAIOMT classes quickly, conveniently, and at a significant discount, plus offers support and continuity from classmates and instructors throughout the year. Here are a few key highlights:
In the manual therapy video below, NAIOMT faculty member Kathy Stupansky demonstrates a manipulation for an extension restriction on the right at C56. Please note, this is a technique covered in our Advanced Spinal Manipulation course. Our Cervical Spine I and II courses are great stops on the path to getting to this level.
What happens when two of NAIOMT’s faculty teach a course together? Lots of laughs, fun and skill-building. In the video below, Stacy Soappman and Terry Pratt demonstrate an alternative way to perform a supine thoracic manipulation during the recent Manip Like a Girl course.
In the manual therapy video below, NAIOMT’s Stacy Soappman provides a detailed review of stress testing cervical ligaments.
If you have any questions at all, please don't hesitate to connect with Stacy on Twitter, or better yet, address them in person at one of our upcoming Cervical Spine courses, which can be taken in any order convenient to you. Second and third year PT students enjoy a significant discount too.
Do you regularly see patients experiencing neck pain? In the manual therapy video below, NAIOMT’s Stacy Soappman demonstrates a Unilateral CT junction manipulation with consideration to a “sensitive” neck.
This is one of the treatment techniques PTs learn in our Cervical Spine I course, so if you’re interested in understanding how and when to apply it, join us! Here are a few coming up (Cervical I and II can be taken in any order, and we sponsor 2nd and 2rd year PT students at a discounted registration fee).
The manual therapy video below is a recent moment in one of our courses. In it, NAIOMT teaching faculty member, Michael Lucido, performs a biomechanical assessment of the sacroiliac joint. We realize every physical therapist is at a different point in their professional skill set, so please let us know if you have any questions at all. We design courses to meet you where you're at, and take you where you want to go in strengthening your manual therapy and clinical reasoning skills for your patients.
