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.
