Core Seminars

PNMT Low Back and Thoracic Spine (19 CEUs)

In the PNMT Low Back and Thoracic Spine seminar, you will learn how to efficiently evaluate and treat people with various types of back pain involving the lumbar and thoracic area. In order to accomplish this, you will learn to clearly identify the anatomical landmarks necessary for great palpation, identify and address the correct soft tissue structures that affect the stated pain pattern, and review how these soft tissue restrictions are tied to movement and everyday complaints.
Participants in this seminar will learn to assess the spine in multiple movement planes (flexion, extension, lateral flexion, rotation) and correlate muscular treatments with movement restrictions. Rather than memorize one-size-fits-nobody routines, emphasis is on problem solving skills and clinical reasoning. (More)

PNMT Form and Function; Integrating Structural and Functional Assessment (16 CEUs)

PNMT Form and Function is about clinical decision making, helping therapists increase effectiveness by treating the right muscle for the right reason. The wisdom (and the art) is in the choosing. Structural assessment is important, but must be done with speed and accuracy.  Moreover, how can you know that the structural asymmetry is related to the client's presenting symptom? By integrating functional assessment as well, this seminar can help you design treatment protocols that create measurable and immediate improvements for the client.
