ABOUT

IAR offers a certification course for clinicians who work specifically in Professional and Amateur Sports. The SMTC is a comprehensive course that provides the Professional and Amateur Sports clinician the opportunity to significantly expand their intervention options by exposing them to the most advanced manual therapy techniques and clinical reasoning specific to the sports population. In addition, the course presents emerging concepts to further enhance the athlete's recovery potential, increase athletic performance, and decrease injury risk. The a la carte course framework allows the participant group to select a preferred track of program material and intervention techniques the clinicians' specific to the athletic population. This allows for a more seamless integration of course information in to the clinician's current practice patterns. The course is offered in 2 or 3 day blocks  to make it convenient for the participants seasonal schedules. Upon successful completion of the course participants will become Sports Manual Therapy Certified (SMTC).
