This course is being offered as a Virtual Lab Experience – an immersive online environment that brings together everything you love about EIM’s in-person weekend intensives. Learn more about what you can expect from this change.
EIM’s Management of Cervical & Thoracic Disorders course is designed to enhance the participant’s knowledge and skill level in the evidence-based management of individuals with cervical-thoracic spine and ribcage disorders and dysfunction. This lab intensive course focuses on the clinical reasoning and hands-on skill development necessary to effectively integrate manual physical therapy examination and intervention techniques into the clinical management of these individuals. Classification systems, outcomes assessment tools, and the application of diagnostic imaging are discussed as components of the diagnostic process within the framework of evidence-based practice. Participants will receive hands-on demonstration and practice of both examination and selected interventions of cervical and thoracic spine.
Virtual Labs Experiences combine online, self-paced coursework with weekly live, synchronous sessions and practice video submissions.

This is by far the best course I have taken with EIM thus far. The manual skills learned during this course are incredibly applicable to cervicothoracic patient populations, and I'm already using my newly acquired skill set.
Gaining not only the hands on skills that you do at the course, one of the best things about the course was learning more about the how/why; with evidence to back it up.
