The required Home Study of 16.3 hours is completed online, at your own pace through MAPS Online Learning, which includes a 6.3-hour PowerPoint lecture presentation. Participants are presented with peer-reviewed published evidence supporting the mechanical, neurophysiological, immunological, and psychological mechanisms of action of Orthopedic Manual Therapy (OMT). As part of the live course preparation, evidence from recent Systematic Reviews and RCTs are provided to illustrate the effectiveness of the approach, and specific conditions that respond to OMT. The major course modules for MT-2 Remote Live include: Lecture Overview and Introduction Mechanisms of Action of OMT Evidence for OMT Effectiveness Maitland Principles Subjective Examination & Physical Examination Clinical Applications: Evidence supporting the value of the techniques, conditions that they treat, and how to best incorporate them into your clinical practice Clinical Reasoning MT-2 CAD-VBI Testing Lots of interactive Q&A time with MAPS expert instructor (2+ hours) The Maitland-Australian approach is extremely patient-centric and focuses upon highly specific subjective & objective physical examination processes. Clinical Reasoning and constant reassessment are taught and emphasized.

Techniques taught include: Mobilization & Manipulation Active Physiological Movements (APMs) Passive Physiological Movements (PPMs) Passive Accessory Movements (PAMs) Combination movements incorporating both osteokinematic (physiological) and arthrokinematic (accessory) movements Neurodynamic assessment Regions extensively covered include: Cervical, Thoracic (including rib articulations) and Lumbar spine.
