COMT

Clinical Orthopedic Manual Therapy (COMT) Certification – Regional Approach involves a series of five in-person workshops and two sets of home study courses. Together, these workshops and courses address clinical orthopedic assessment and treatment techniques, as well as musculoskeletal pathology, and kinesiology for the entire body.

Becoming COMT certified means that you will learn how to remedy specific musculoskeletal complaints with which your client/patient presents.

 

These workshops are all hands-on and always address each assessment and treatment technique from the point of view of critical thinking so you can creatively apply your techniques for maximal results!
