As many of you may have heard, Optim Manual Therapy Fellowship became accredited through both AAOMPT and ABPTRFE last year. Optim originated in Houston, TX, expanded last year to Scottsdale, AZ, and is coming to Dallas, TX this year! The Houston cohort is currently full, but both the Scottsdale and Dallas cohorts are still accepting applicants.
Optim Manual Therapy currently offers a 1-year COMT program in both Scottsdale, Dallas, and Houston. The program includes 6 on-site weekend long courses covering repeated motions, standardized mobility assessments, Sahrmann's Movement Impairment Syndromes (MIS), and many manual therapy assessment/treatment techniques for each region. Additionally, between classes there are different Medbridge courses assigned in addition to several online case discussion mentoring sessions regularly throughout the year. The COMT program is an excellent way to advance your clinical skills and knowledge and to prepare for the OCS. While these are excellent goals for growth as clinicians, our goal is to change your practice patterns. We don't simply want you to go home after each course and try a few new techniques. We want you to come away from each course with a different philosophy and thought process in how to address each body region and individual.
Should you complete the COMT program, you can then enroll in the Fellowship part of Optim Manual Therapy. If you have interest in joining Optim, don't hesitate to contact me or any of the faculty at Optim. Next cohorts in Houston, Dallas, and Scottsdale are beginning in September!
Below you will find a lecture given for the Optim COMT program on Repeated Motions for the Cervicothoracic Spine. This is just one of many theories we teach our program participants.
