Following attentive participation and completion, this course will provide participants with advanced knowledge and skills to:
1. More effectively apply the McKenzie Method of Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy to patients with spine or extremity problems.
2. Further cultivate patient interviewing skills to accurately determine the most efficient examination pathway.
3. With the more challenging patient, distinguish between the McKenzie syndromes (postural, dysfunction, and derangement) as applied to the spine and extremity problems, and provide appropriate treatment regimens for each of the syndromes and their sub-classifications.
4. More readily identify when the application of external forces is required for the resolution of symptoms using McKenzie's "progression of forces" concept.
5. Refine the ability to teach patients to apply the therapeutic processes on their own to maintain treatment goals.

As its name implies, this course focuses on review and update of the principles and application of the McKenzie theory and techniques of Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy. The course will include more intensive clinical reasoning and problem solving through a high volume of patient demonstrations and case study analysis involving all regions of the spine as well as the extremities. Each major subdivision of the course has very specific educational objectives that will reinforce the knowledge and skills which will further refine your own abilities in applying these principles.
With two instructors, the opportunity for one-on-one tutelage is significantly greater.
