Workshop

Hands-On Workshop: New Manual Medicine Techniques for Treating Lower Back
1−3:30pm | Wednesday, May 6
Earn up to 2 CME/CE credits

Faculty: Frank J. Domino, MDSteve Messineo, DPT; and Mark Powicki, PT, DPT, CSCS

Description:
Many musculo-skeletal complaints can be treated by manual medicine techniques, lessening the use of pain medication and improving patient outcomes. Osteopathically trained physicians learn these in depth; but the basics can be learned by any clinician. This workshop will focus on rapid physical exam and treatment techniques that you can easily integrate into your practice. The patient will walk out of your office feeling better, with a useful patient education handout and a referral to physical therapy, rather than a handful of prescriptions, an x-ray order and a referral to orthopedics.
