Improving Thoracic Mobility is organized by PT Seminars.

1.5 contact hrs

Course Description:
A lack of thoracic mobility can have broad clinical implications and evidence suggests addressing mobility in this region may be beneficial for those with shoulder, neck and lower back pain. However, this region can be challenging to treat. Enhancing mobility can be difficult due to the intimate architecture of the anatomy. Also, improving mobility for patients can require awkward positions that may be challenging to assume. This course will discuss the anatomy and basic mechanics of the thoracic region and review current evidence for interventions targeting this region. Finally, practical manual therapy and self-mobilization concepts will be covered so the participant can take this information and apply it in practical way. Upon conclusion of this webinar the attendee will have a better understanding of how thoracic mobility can have a broach influence on many different patient cases and new ideas on how to address it clinically.

This online certificate course for Physical Therapists/PTA’s, Occupational Therapists/COTA’s, and ATC’s , is a learning module taught by on-demand streaming video. At the end of the course there will be a quiz. Upon successful completion of the quiz, a certificate confirming completion of the Improving Thoracic Mobility Course will be issued.

Course Objectives:
• Identify three primary causes for decreased thoracic mobility
• Identify four conditions associated with a lack of thoracic mobility
• Describe 3 manual therapy techniques to address poor thoracic mobility
• Describe 4 self-mobilization techniques to promote patient self-care to improve thoracic mobility

Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
