How Star Wars Is Like Us

Posted by NAIOMT on Dec 17, 2015 9:46:32 PM

Social media is alive with commercials and excitement for “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” that arrives in theaters today December 18, 2015. What does this have to do with Manual therapy or NAIOMT?
"A long time ago… in a galaxy far, far away”(called Portland), I was a ‘young’ 35 year old PT who attended my first NAIOMT class. Little did I know that the instructors of this class were Jedi Masters in the physical therapy world. As I sat in class, I knew that I wanted to become half as good as the instructors who were in front of me. The core values that they possessed were like that of the Jedi. NAIOMT’s faculty all displayed a ‘knowing’ or expertise including a strong work ethic, integrity and honesty that I could respect. They offered themselves as a mentor to this padewon and conveyed a genuine desire to share their physical therapy knowledge, experience and to give something of themselves back to the therapy world. It took no time to determine that I wanted to be trained up to become a Jedi adviser.

Treating The Throwing Athlete

Posted by NAIOMT on Nov 4, 2015 3:49:28 PM

Baseball and softball players (and other overhead throwing athletes) are unique and require special characteristics to allow them the mobility and stability to perform their sport. And there are considerable anatomical and biomechanical kinetic chain concepts that a physical therapist must understand to treat them appropriately. That's why we developed our new overhead thrower’s course, Advanced Concepts for the Overhead Athlete, designed specifically for physical therapists interested in treating these types of athletes.
