Course Description

24 Education Hours:  8 Hours – Online Self Study + 16 Hours – Online Instructor-led Training

IAOM-US-NEXT combines online courses with Online Instructor-Led Training (OILT). You get a very personalized mentoring experience from the comfort of your favorite learning environment.

The IAOM-US NEXT Approach to Complete Clinician in Musculoskeletal Management of Thoracic Pain course takes an in-depth look at thoracic spine complex pathoanatomy (discogenic degenerative and traumatic deficits, structural deficiencies, functional instability, intra-articular joint conditions, chondral defects, muscular dysfunctions, etc.), basic and specific clinical examination of the thoracic spine, clinical interpretation and differential diagnosis, management suggestions for acute and recurrent/chronic thoracic spine conditions, overall conservative management of thoracic pain among others.

Each week, course participants will log in and receive 2 hours of live skills enhancement around certain patient care considerations – all on a specific case study prepared to develop the knowledge and skills to become a complete clinician. This way participants can see the systematic approach, combining updated evidence and clinical experience/expertise, as it applies to the same case study.

Objectives and Goals

  • Exhibit an exact knowledge of pathoanatomy, physiology, and biomechanics for the thoracic spine complex conditions and related disorders.
  • Review clinical examination of the thoracic spine and related disorders.
  • Show an understanding of how to interpret the clinical examination to reach a precise clinical diagnosis of the thoracic joint complex dysfunctions and related disorders.
  • Perform effective treatment for structural and functional-related pathologies through an accurate understanding of surface anatomy and tissue physiology of the thoracic spine complex and related disorders.
  • Apply a framework for planning the prescription of affliction-specific neuromotor and sensorimotor strategies management for the thoracic spine complex and related disorders.
  • Integrate evidence and experience shared by the instructors into a complete approach in musculoskeletal management of thoracic spine complex dysfunctions.
