The Importance of Observation in PT

Posted by Ann Porter Hoke, PT, DPT, OCS, FCAMPT, FAAOMPT on Mar 23, 2019 10:15:49 AM

This organization was built on and continues to be fueled by the idea that as clinicians--no matter how experienced--we can always become better at what we do. That asking questions, pushing boundaries and going outside the routine not only gives us career satisfaction, but truly makes a difference in our patients' lives. In the below video, I  discuss the importance of observation. Because coming back to the seemingly most basic of questions makes us better.

The thing is, if becoming a truly great clinician was easy, everyone would be doing it. It takes drive, determination and heart to reach new levels in this challenging work we do. Join us in 2020 and see what you're capable of. Browse NAIOMT's course schedule.

What is Similar About Horner’s Syndrome & How to Functionally Train a Patient with a Compromised Alar Ligament?

Posted by Steve Allen, PT, OCS, COMT, FAAOMPT on Oct 24, 2018 7:47:54 PM

So what is similar about Horner’s Syndrome and how to functionally train a patient with a compromised alar ligament? The answer, my friends, is they both come up in our presentation in the NAIOMT Scan of the Head. This region is functionally, anatomically, neurologically and pathologically so very different than the mid-cervical spine. As faculty instructors, we present these two so very distinct areas on separate tracks, with the head scan alone taking up a good portion of one day of our Cervical Spine course.
