This course will provide physical and occupational therapists with knowledge and skills in managing older adults with a variety of musculoskeletal conditions that impact their movement and function. Musculoskeletal pain and dysfunction is a leading cause of disability in older adults. Lower extremity arthritic conditions and aging spine problems such as lumbar spinal stenosis frequently result in decreased fitness levels and increased fall risk. This course will focus on evidence-based treatments to address these problems, including hands-on manual therapy and exercise management strategies, for the older adult.

The course does a great job at reminding therapists to not "undertreat" our older patients and what important red/yellow flags to identity for the geriatric population. I will be utilizing more manual therapy to assist with hip and knee pain relief in the geriatric population.
I learned great hands on techniques that are applicable to my practice. Highly recommend this course.
