DeKALB – Ken Olson and Aaron Nevdal, physical therapists and partners with Northern Rehab Physical Therapy Specialists, recently instructed a course as a pre-conference course for the American Physical Therapy Association’s Combined Sections Meeting. Physical therapists from across the United States participated in this two-day course to advance their skills in the use of hands-on manual therapy techniques combined with specific therapeutic exercises to attain the optimal results of physical therapy treatments for painful neck and upper back conditions.
Olson and Nevdal also 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.
Olson practices in the DeKalb Resource Parkway Northern Rehab location and Nevdal practices in both the DeKalb and the Rochelle locations of Northern Rehab.
