and Manual Therapy Approaches for the Athlete - Physical Therapy Seminar
Effective, Comprehensive Treatment Strategies
for Sport Rehabilitation

This one-day course will explore the techniques for assessing and rehabilitating
the most common athletic dysfunctions. Current research will be presented to
objectively address causes of dysfunction and how to apply effective

manual therapy treatment techniques. Attendees will learn new approaches and
techniques that can be implemented into their clinical practice the very next
