Hello world! As the lead-off post for this new blog, I feel there should be some explanation as to the purpose of what you have seen so far, or will see in the future.
In general, it is hoped that the advancement of skilled manual therapy among physical therapists will be assisted by what we are doing here. To help achieve this, posts about actual case reports with details of examination, assessment, intervention, and outcomes will be included. In addition to case reports, interviews (whether in audio or video format) from manual physical therapists that provide mentoring or education (either in the clinic or continuing education arena) will be utilized to give insight into unique paradigms or thought processes to broaden our horizons, so to speak. Lastly, videos of a variety of techniques will be uploaded at times to encourage all of us to continue pursuing excellence in our skills.
So, be sure to subscribe, check us out on Twitter or Facebook, or check back periodically to see what’s new. Certainly contact us with any questions, comments, or suggestions if any things comes to mind!
