Details

This course is part of the MCMT® continuing education certification program that offers expanded study and clinical practicum in the most important, most effective, and most widely used areas of Manual Therapy.

This course offers a unique comprehensive approach for Shoulder – Elbow and Hand Pathology that combines over 56 years of cumulative clinical experience of Dr. Kostopoulos & Dr. Rizopoulos, authors of Best Selling Manual Therapy texts and founders of Hands-On Seminars, with many of the teachings of leading manual therapy doctors such as: Travell & Simons, Maitland & Cyriax, Butler, Elvey & Shacklock, Janda, Lewit, Chaitow, Kaltenborn, Paris & others. The MCMT® program offers the clinician a series of comprehensive evidence-based training seminars such as the Shoulder – Elbow and Hand Pathology course with immediate clinical applications that enable the clinician to demonstrate competency and become an expert in manual therapy.

The Live portion of the course contains extensive lab sessions of all evaluation and treatment techniques, presented in problem-based fashion after the student has mastered the theory and basic techniques through the online component of the course.

Students take the Online component (10 CEUs) of the course where they learn the basic theory and techniques followed by the Live program (another 16 CEUs) for technique application to specific clinical scenarios.

Suggested CEUs: 10 Online & 16 Live = 26 CEUs (dependent on state approval)

“At Hands-On Seminars we believe that any single manual therapy approach in isolation, and any single school of thought does not provide a cure for all patients’ problems. We believe that successful clinical outcomes are the result of a comprehensive, eclectic manual therapy approach. You as a therapist, need to master a number of manual therapy approaches so that you can select the proper combination for your specific patient. With Hands-On Seminars MCMT® program you get just that! We have selected for you – from a variety of physical therapy approaches – the most effective and efficient, evidence-based manual therapy techniques that when combined with proper assessments can lead to successful treatment outcomes. By the end of the program, you will have a toolbox full of manual therapy approaches that you can use to treat your patients.”

– Dr. Dimitrios Kostopoulos & Dr. Konstantine Rizopoulos, Founders of Hands-On Seminars
