At Optim Manual Therapy, our goal is not to simply teach a few manipulations or cool new exercises. We want to change your dynamic as a therapist. Again, many programs may talk about incorporating recent evidence, but what's more important is determining the validity of the study and its applicability to our practice. When evaluating a patient, we must consider the individual's biopsychosocial factors, correlation between presentation and anatomical findings, pain science, and evidence-based practice. Our goal is to alter your practice pattern with each patient.
Optim Manual Therapy offers a 1-year COMT program in Houston TX, Dallas TX, and Scottsdale AZ. It includes 6 weekend-long onsite classes with lecture and lab, Medbridge classes, online mentoring between classes, and article discussion. Following completion of either a residency or the COMT year, you are welcome to enroll in the Fellowship component. The Fellowship program takes place over 15 months and includes 10 weekend-long courses and 400+ hours of mentoring with a Fellow of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Manual therapy in order to further enhance your clinical reasoning and manual skill development.
If you are interested in joining the Optim experience, feel free to contact myself or any of the faculty members. The upcoming Houston TX COMT cohort is already full, but there are still some openings remaining in the Dallas TX and Scottsdale AZ cohorts. Be sure to hurry if interested as classes start in September. Check out www.optimfellowship.com for more information and for some sample material, check out the videos below.
