Why Take Our Course?
Doctors of Physical Therapy (DPTs) who have also earned their Orthopedic Clinical Specialists (OCS) and Fellowship in Manual Therapy (FAAOMPT) comprise only ~1% of all Physical Therapists across the United States. Your course authors have been trained in all of these areas, and they have completed additional coursework in the Selective Functional Movement Assessment, Dry Needling, and other integrative medicine courses. Both Dr. Jim Heafner and Dr. Chris Fox completed credentialed Orthopedic Residency programs with a heavy emphasis on clinical mentorship. Their academic and clinical backgrounds make them experts in managing cervical spine patients. As evidenced based practitioners, the Orthopedic Management of the Cervical Spine includes the HIGHEST levels of evidence plus their individual expertise helping patients with both acute and chronic neck pain return to full activity.
