Manual Therapy is a specialized treatment approach that consists of hands-on techniques including joint mobilization, massage, and other interventions designed to mobilize joints, activate muscles, connective tissues, and stimulate nerves in order to facilitate healing and restore optimal function. This program is designed to teach canine rehabilitation practitioners’ canine peripheral joint and spinal biomechanics, and manual therapy techniques inclusive of joint mobilization, massage, and range of motion. Our courses are designed to provide clinicians with practical techniques that will change the way they practice and help patients achieve maximal outcomes.

This course is Part V in the CCMT Program.

Learning Objectives

  • Students will upload video case studies demonstrating proficiency and knowledge of manual therapy in rehabilitation cases.
  • Three cases will be submitted for review.
  • After successful review of these cases by faculty, students will qualify for CCMT VI:  Online Final Exam and Video Case Studies.

At the completion of this program, students will submit three cases demonstrating:

  1. Accurate palpation of selected boney segments and landmarks, muscles, ligaments, and other soft tissues.
  2. Various selected manual therapy techniques including massage/soft tissue mobilizations and joint mobilizations.
  3. Understanding of the indications, precautions and contraindications to various manual therapy techniques (massage/soft tissue mobilization and joint mobilization)
  4. Selected range of motion exercises including: cervical motion, thoracic motion, lumbar motion, digit motion, carpal motion, elbow motion, shoulder motion, hock motion, stifle motion, and hip motion.
  5. Selected massage/soft tissue mobilizations supraspinatus/biceps, scapular entrapment, iliopsoas (diagnostic and therapeutic), gracilis and hamstring muscle mobilization.
  6. Selected joint mobilizations of the shoulder, elbow, carpus, metacarpals, digits, hip, stifle, tarsus, metatarsals, and digits
  7. Selected joint mobilizations of the cervical, thoracic, lumbar spine, and SIJ including Maitland’s grade I through IV mobilizations
  8. NAGs and SNAGs via Mulligan on the cervical and lumbar spine
  9. Outcome measures and assessment techniques to guide the treatment progression
  10. Outcome measures and assessment techniques to guide the treatment progression
  11. Integration of manual therapy into the overall treatment program
