On Mentorship

Posted by NAIOMT on Oct 16, 2015 9:24:31 AM

Mentorship develops PTs into effective, ever-evolving, and ever-improving professionals with the chops to dig down and truly help their patients--no matter the presentation. That's why, for us, it's an integral part of these manual therapy courses.
