AAOMPT 2013: Thursday

I arrived at AAOMPT Thursday morning, just in time to check out a great lecture on the Three Pillars of the Mulligan Concept.  This course was taught by two Canadian Physiotherapists, Jack Miller and Jim Millard, who did a great job at utilizing “Occam’s Razor” in their ability to explain why something may work.  This course explored the Mulligan Concept (which is very similar to the Maitland philosophy) and stresses clinical reasoning and importance of patient reassessment.  In essence they stressed an “interactive” approach in patient care and allowing the patient to move as we provide certain inputs (and this explanation does not do their teaching justice).  Overall, this lecture was top-notch, and I would highly recommend checking these guys out…

After the Mulligan course Bob Rowe, AAOMPT President welcomed in the new fellowship courses and fellows.  At ForwardThinkingPT, we would like to congratulate all of the new fellows!

Finally, we wrapped up the day at the exhibit booths (I was fortunate to be part of the Oakworks booth).

Overall, day 1 was filled with good learning experiences and I am excited to bring you guys more info tomorrow.
