Astoria, New York (PRWEB) May 12, 2014
Musculoskeletal Dysfunction is on the rise across the United States and on an international level. Considering that 80% of adults will injure their backs at some point in their lives and that, according to the American Public Health Association, musculoskeletal problems cost the United States approximately $45-$55 billion per year, strategies for effective treatment are vital. Hands-On Seminars reports a program to help with this problem.
Manual therapy is considered the most effective approach to dealing with these problems.
With the Mastery Certification in Manual Therapy (MCMT) continuing education program, physical therapists are offered expanded study and clinical practicum in the most important, effective, and widely used areas of Manual Therapy.
Rather than limiting the education to one or two approaches to a clinical problem, the physical therapist is given access to several different strategies. With the MCMT program there is a marked increase in a physical therapist’s success and efficacy in dealing with the numerous orthopedic problems encountered in clinical practice.
As Kevin Okamura PT, FCAMT, MCMT, certified Instructor for Hands-On Seminars and physical therapist for a private clinic in Edmonton, Canada, puts it, “The other programs often only focus on one particular area or one treatment approach. I believe that the MCMT program will leave therapists more complete and effective as a result of the multiple approaches incorporated into the curriculum.”
The curriculum is flexible and is designed for the working professional. A physical therapist can complete the MCMT program in as little as two years. Hands-On Seminars also allows two of the courses to be completed at the convenience of your home as Home Study courses and still be eligible to complete the Mastery Certification in Manual Therapy.
The course is offered with two different delivery methods. With one method, the student does the full course live by taking the five two-day courses culminating in the final two-day MCMT course. With the second delivery method, a hybrid learning approach, a physical therapist takes the five courses online, completing each with a one-day workshop. The great benefit of the hybrid approach is that the student learns all the theory on his or her own schedule, at their own pace. The practical is then completed in one day. With this method a student can complete two courses in one weekend.

(HOS) is the leading international continuing education organization in the world, awarded the Lecture & Seminars Award as the best Lecture and Seminar Company from the Lectures and Seminars Bureau over the past two years.
