This foundational class provides knowledge and skills to examine, diagnose and plan treatment of a wide range of common, significant orthopedic injuries, pain and disabilities.

With neck and shoulder as example, learn ortho-neuro exams and how to integrate them into AOM patterns, orthopedic tissue diagnoses, and functional capacity assessments that establish baselines, identify urgent conditions--and guide treatment. Take home practical techniques and strategies, as well as theoretical understandings immediately applicable to orthopedic conditions generally. This class empowers with skills to learn directly from patients by measuring their outcomes--free yourself from dependency on teachers and texts! And prepare to get the most out of the rest of our Spine and Extremities series!
