These skills form the foundation for assessing functional movement as well as performing safe and effective manual therapy techniques. Thus, while the focus of the class will be to develop sound, introductory palpation and manual muscle testing skills, basic principles of functional movement and manual therapy will also be addressed through hands-on application as well as case study.
