Confirmation Notes


MAPS is proud to present this Remote Learning webinar, exclusive only to MAPS, that explains the most current state of the research, and identifies both the mechanisms that are known to occur, and those that do not occur with the application of manual therapy. The information found in hundreds of dedicated research articles is consolidated and presented in a concise and cohesive manner. The world-renowned and award-winning instructor Dr. Chad Cook explores the mechanistic studies in terms of Neurophysiological, Biophysiological and Psychological effects of manual therapy, all of which is supported by research evidence. Following Dr. Cook’s presentation, MAPS Fellowship Program Director Dr. Chris Showalter guides participants through the basics of one of the most famous approaches to Orthopedic Manual Therapy, known as the Maitland-Australian Approach.
