The course will present the most recent research on the functional model of care utilized in treatment of MSK injuries as opposed to the mechanistic model taught in the past and in the current educational institutions.

From there you will be guided through assessment strategies from head to toe to allow for clear direction of care; this will entail functional testing, movement pattern assessment, neuromuscular behaviour and orthopaedic tests. And finally, you’ll be guided through the treatment strategies for common MSK disorders utilizing acupuncture, joint mobilization/manipulation, corrective exercises and various soft tissue approaches along with guides to utilize in practice. 

The course will utilize cadaver analysis for clarity in understanding of the use of acupuncture and the theories presented.
