About the course

THE COMT’s main objective is intended towards an amalgamation of the various manual concepts for neuromusculoskeletal examination and treatment procedures into one complete formulated system of orthopedic manual therapy. The Hands-on- workshop is based on integrated approach of various manual therapy concepts. After treating more than 85,000 patients and conducting hundreds of workshops on various concepts by training more than 10,000 physios collectively, Dr. Deepak Kumar, Bhini Semwal and the team of Physios at Capri Institute of Manual Therapy (CIMT) has picked up the best techniques out of all the various Manual Therapy Concepts. Best of these concepts will be covered in 9 days’ course.

Capri strongly believes that a successful clinician’s foundation lies in strong and accurate orthopedic assessment to deliver qualitative and appropriate treatment. This comprehensive 8 days’ certificate course lays strong emphasis on orthopedic manual therapy to provide clinicians with intensive tuition to perform an accurate and specific manual therapy examination according to the patient’s needs. The examination & treatment process developed by CIMT draws on the work of various NUMERO UNO in Manual Therapy like Butler, Edwards, Elvey, Maitland, McConnell, McKenzie, Shacklock, and several taping concepts.

We inculcate in the clinicians the art of subjective and physical examination from Manual Therapy point of view rather than spoon feeding the therapist with a dead-end protocol.
