Clinical and Scientific Rationale for Modern Manual Therapy (MT1)

The OGI offers an internationally and nationally renowned manual physical therapy curriculum based on the innovative and unique concepts. Continuing education courses cover all levels of research in proven concepts and clinical practice derived from the predominant schools of thought in manual therapy, osteopathy, sports medicine, rheumatology, neurology, and radiology. Click on any of the courses listed below for a full description. All courses earn credits toward Certification, Residency and/or Fellowship Programs.

With it’s origin in Norwegian Manual Therapy, this course is foundational for all of our manual therapy and exercise courses. Taught and updated since the 1970’s, course was the evidence for manual therapy and exercise before there was Evidence-based medicine. Learn clinical application with a more in-depth application of histology, neurophysiology, traumatology and work physiology. Apply concepts to what you already do, as well as unique clinical applications that will make a difference in your patient care now. Use science, rather than tradition, to select and dose your manual and exercise interventions.

Course Dates and Cities 

An Independent Study format that can be completed in the convenience of the home or office at a reduced cost. The curriculum has the same high standards as the MT-1 on-site seminar. The required final examination covers topics such as functional histology, neurophysiology, pathophysiology of trauma, stages of healing, exercise physiology and scientific rationale behind evaluation and treatment with manual therapy. The MT-1 serves as a prerequisite for MT-2, MT-3, MT-4 and MT-5.

This course presents clinically relevant research on functional histology, anatomy, neurophysiology, biomechanics and traumatology.  It offers a systematic rationale for evaluation, treatment and prevention. Course presented through lecture and demonstrations with supporting handouts. List the optimal stimuli for regeneration/repair of neuro-musculoskeletal tissues. Understand and discuss how to apply basic scientific rationale to patient treatment. The MT-1 is recommended as a prerequisite for MT-2, MT-3, MT-5 and the STEP series 1-6.
