To remain licensed as a physical therapist in Montana, 20 contact hours of continuing education are required every two years.
Notably, all of the physical therapists at Alpine receive $1,000 annually for continuing education, enabling all of us to go well beyond the minimum!
In fact, I’m flying out on Friday to San Diego to attend two different continuing education courses.
The first is entitled Part II: Cervicothoracic Dysfunction & Cervicogenic Headaches: Diagnosis & Management with HVLA Thrust Manipulation & Exercise. Simply put, this is an advanced class on using spinal manipulation and exercise for neck pain and headaches.
Then on Wednesday, I meet up with two other Alpine physical therapists, Sam and Angela. Sam will finalize her certification as a Master Instructor for CoreAlign®. Angela and I will be in class on Wednesday and Thursday taking our Level I Certification for CoreAlign®.
I’ll keep you in the loop over the next week on the weather in San Diego, the courses I’ll be taking, and the additional fun I can hopefully integrate while there!
