Class Description:

PNMT FOR THE SHOULDER (Day1 4/12/24): Shoulder pain is the second-most common musculoskeletal reason that people seek medical attention and there are a multitude of reasons that might explain a client presenting symptoms. PNMT for the Shoulder will help you make great decisions about what to treat, when, and why. With abundant hands-on time and very flexible treatment approaches, you and your clients will love the results.

PNMT FOR THE ARM AND HAND (Day2 4/13/24) : Arm and hand problems are extremely interesting and clearly in the soft-tissue domain, yet many therapists are not well familiar with the anatomy and possible pathologies. This is a complex area, but who better to treat it than people who use their hands as the tools for healing? You will learn efficient assessment techniques to guide your treatment approach, helping you to maximize your effectiveness.
