Course: Visceral Manipulation: Abdomen 1; Organ Specific Fascial Mobilization (VM1)
Description: An integrative approach to evaluation/treatment of musculoskeletal dysfunction requires assessment of structural relationships between viscera, and their fascial/ligamentous attachments to the musculoskeletal system. This is taught in Visceral Manipulation 1. All viscera have physiological motion that relates to normal pain-free movement; so knowledge of these relationships and anatomy involved are essential to see patients within an integrated framework. An integrated approach also requires attention to mechanical relationships between the cranium/spine hard frame to the dura/neural elements.For more information:www.barralinstitute.com

The mission of PT Night Out is to bring the physical therapy community together to build relationships that transform society.
Our Vision PT Night Out will serve as a repeating opportunity to connect and mobilize physical therapists, assistants and students across Maryland and will develop to become the official social gathering of the Chapter.
- Bring people together in their local communities to build lasting relationships rooted in the APTA
- Discuss issues, interests and pressures within the physical therapy profession that attendees are facing
- Take action on these issues by mobilizing attendees within and across sites to create real-world change in the areas of shared interest
- Develop leaders and leadership skills through right-sized involvement that increases connection and engagement in APTAMD over time
