Dr. Zapanta, who is currently enrolled in the Orthopaedic Manual Physical Therapy Fellowship through NeuroRTI’s sister company, Evidence In Motion, joined the faculty in February 2016 and will serve as an instructor for NeuroRTI’s Manual Therapy Interventions for the Neurologic Patient.

“We are thrilled to welcome Dr. Zapanta to the NeuroRTI team as the instructor of our Manual Therapy Interventions for the Neurologic Patient course,” said Dr. Tim Flynn PT, PhD, OCS, FAAOMPT. “The purpose of the course is to improve students understanding and application of common musculoskeletal disorders in the neurologically-involved client, with the ultimate goal being a high level of competency in management of the musculoskeletal system in this patient population. Dr. Zapanta’s background makes him the perfect candidate to teach this course and we look forward to seeing how our students benefit from his knowledge.”

“I am extremely excited to begin work with the NeuroRTI family. It is a thrilling time to bridge neurological and orthopaedic principles together in order to build a comprehensive and integrative approach to care for our patients and I look forward to blending those principles with students attending our July and August courses,” said Zapanta.
