    MT-2: Essential Spinal Seminar (20.7 Direct Contact Hours/3.1 CEUs)
    May be taken as first course in the series. Introduction to the Maitland-Australian concept of assessment and treatment for the Spine. Emphasis is on the Cervical, Thoracic (including rib articulations) and Lumbar spine. Neurodynamic assessments are introduced. Principles of assessment/treatment are addressed in supervised lab sessions with live patient demonstrations. Management of pain-dominant (pathophysiological) and stiffness-dominant (pathomechanical) disorders are taught extensively. Techniques of assessment and treatment include physiological and accessory movements, which are directed very specifically to individual spinal segments.
    Includes required Home Study course component of approximately 10.7 hours.
