Who has time to read every new medical journal? Many therapists miss a lot of recent, important information, and often continue believing what was proven wrong simply because we lack the time to read volumes of new research and data.

This course was inspired by the work of Paul Ingraham of www.saveyourself.ca. He presents medical research in a way that’s easy to understand in a series of lengthy essays. If you lack the time (or the inclination) to read all of his essays, this class is a perfect alternative. With his permission, it includes some of his material, as well as other mythbusting findings of 2012 and 2013, all relating to problems in the musculoskeletal system.

This Seminar-on-Demand is 3 contact hours in length (check your state’s approval status in the state specific course catalog for your profession).
