Course TitleCan Manual Therapy Survive in a Pain Science World?

CEHs: 4.2 (pending)


The course will attempt to define manual therapy and pain science. The utility and evidence for both will be discussed in the current healthcare environment. A combination of lecture and discussion will be used to facilitate discussions in an effort to bring out how best to integrate the two into an optimal paradigm for intervention and interaction with patients/clients.

Presenter: Robert Streb, PT, PhD - Clinical Associate Professor at Stony Brook University

Dr. Streb received his BS from Long Island University with a major in Health Sciences, MS from Long Island University with a major in Physical Therapy, and a PhD from Stony Brook University from the Department of Anatomical Sciences. Dr. Streb’s doctoral research involved identification of movement patterns and development of a predictive model in individuals with patellofemoral pain syndrome. Current research projects include investigation of knee medial collapse, evaluation of a knee decompression brace in individuals with knee arthritis, the effect on pitching speed following thoracic spine manipulation and muscle energy, and force in the shoulder in football players during blocking.  While Dr. Streb has worked with individuals with a wide range of impairments, activity limitations, and restrictions in participation, he has worked most extensively with individuals with back and neck dysfunction and pain. He currently teaches in the Doctorate in Physical Therapy Program in the areas of Exercise, Orthopedic Physical Therapy, and Evidence Based Practice.
