Rehabilitation professionals who properly apply manual therapy techniques and neuromuscular facilitation exercises are giving their patients the best opportunity to rehabilitate their injuries. This two day course will enable the participant to understand the role of manual therapy in rehabilitation of the upper extremity and apply manual and exercise techniques appropriately. The interaction between the instructor and participant is the foundation for an active learning environment.
