For this class, we want to help you discover how to do just that.  To look at old problems in new ways.  We will introduce to you the "Inclusion Method", which is our system for evaluation.  This system offers a fresh alternative to the traditional evaluation process.  We will talk about "key lesions" - what they are and how to find them.  We will teach you short cuts that will help you quickly narrow down your focus, so that you do not get lost trying to evaluate your patient.  Throughout the lecture and lab, we will be asking you to share your experiences, your input, your thoughts and to think outside of the box.

9.6 hours will be awarded to physical therapists, physical therapy assistants and massage therapists for completing this seminar, which satisfies the requirements of the NYS Board of Education.
