Tune in this Thursday, February 28th @ 9pm E to Therapydia, to listen to Robert E. Duvall PT, DHSc, MMSc, OCS, SCS, ATC, FAAOMPT, MTC, PCC, CSCS,  Michael Timko PT, MS, FAAOMPT and myself, discuss what it means to be a “Modern Manual Therapist“.   

For those who are unfamiliar with Dr. Duvall, he  is a Board Certified Orthopaedic and Primary Clinical Care Specialist who is dedicated to the advancement of the physical therapy profession, the education of terminal degree doctoral physical therapy students, the utilization of evidence-based medicine in patient care, and the promotion of the positive evolution of healthcare.  He is the owner and director of Sports Medicine of Atlanta and has developed APTA credentialed post-professional residency and fellowship programs and a very successful continuing education series.  

Michael Timko is on academic appointment as a full-time instructor in the University of Pittsburgh’s Physical Therapy program, director of the Musculoskeletal master’s program and assistant professor in West Virginia University’s Physical Therapy program.   He was also very closely connected to and taught with, Dr. Richard Erhard, one of the original founders of the AAOMPT and has an upcoming course series which you can sign up for here.

  1. This sounds awesome! How long do you think it will run? I’m trying to fit it in with my OCS studying, I definitely don’t want to miss it. Also I think talking about how modern manual therapy can fit in with the chronic pain/central sensitization patients may be cool. I know with a lot of these patients they say focus on active movement, but just some examples of specific techniques you use manual wise could be cool.
