Who We Are

We Are Teachers & Leaders

We are teachers, leaders, and skilled practitioners of orthopaedic manual therapy. Since 1993, the Institute of Orthopaedic Manual Therapy (IOMT) has been teaching seasoned and new physical therapists alike from across the state and the country how to enhance their skills in orthopaedic care. Our goal is to help you bridge the gap between what you learn in the classroom, read in the literature, and what you see and do every day in clinical care.

 

We Bridge Science to Care! At the IOMT, we are dedicated to helping you deliver the best patient care possible utilizing a unique and specialized approach.

The IOMT Approach

The IOMT approach is rooted in the Kaltenborn/Evjenth Orthopaedic Manual Therapy (OMT) System. At its core are in-depth anatomical and bio-mechanical principals developed and fine tuned through years of clinical experience and evidence-based research.

IOMT emphasizes the sequential process of differential diagnosis. This approach allows treatment to be focused, individualized, and tailored to ensure better outcomes and excellence in quality care.

Learn With Us

At the IOMT, we take pride in helping our students to develop the manual skills and therapeutic exercise techniques that you simply can’t learn from a book alone. Using the Nordic System of Orthopaedic Manual Therapy, we create movement specialists by emphasizing motor learning and dynamic control, in addition to training highly skilled manual therapists.

 

Through our Level I and Level II year long Certificate Programs and our Weekend Seminar offerings, we integrate academics, classroom instruction, and supervised patient treatment to develop the tools you need to be knowledgable, experienced, and seasoned masters of your craft. Our manual therapy graduates routinely credit their IOMT experience for their improved confidence in clinical skills and a newfound professional satisfaction.
