This one-day seminar focused on instruction of manual therapy examination and treatment techniques to treat mid-back, neck and shoulder pain conditions. Physical therapists throughout Illinois participated in this course.
Olson and Nevdal are both certified orthopaedic physical therapy specialists and co-teach a course on examination and treatment of the spine as part of the Northern Illinois University doctorate in physical therapy program. Olson’s book, “Manual Physical Therapy of the Spine,” is the required textbook for this course.
