Louisville, KY (PRWEB) June 14, 2011
Evidence In Motion (EIM) is pleased to report that Manipalooza was a very successful event for all physical therapists and physical therapy students and faculty in attendance. Manipalooza was held on May 21-24, 2011 in Denver, Colorado consisting of 4 days of hands on learning in manipulation, soft tissue techniques and pain management strategies for physical therapists.
The 4 day event kicked off with “Maniaplooza Mosh”, a morning of short presentations covering hot topics in physical therapy, such as barriers in clinical education, positive deviance, the latest news in physical therapy training, and the quality of clinical care. Participants then spent three and a half days learning manual therapy techniques from leaders in physical therapy research and education. Topics such as, "Mobilization with Movement," “Advanced Ribcage Manipulative Management,” “Craniomandibular Manipulative Management,” and "Instrumented Soft Tissue Techniques" were highlighted.
“Manipalooza was even bigger and better in 2011 than we expected,” states Tim Flynn, PT, PhD, EIM principle and faculty member. “Participants will take the knowledge they learned immediately into the clinic to help patients see better results from their therapy. Faculty provided hands-on guidance and advice to these therapists, sharpening their skills and granting them examples to draw from when they are back in the clinic.”
