1979-Mix of Teaching Philosophies

The first program faculty are eclectic in their approach to teaching Manual Therapy.

As described by Barbara Stevens:  “In the beginning, there were no teaching strategies to learn from in the USA. Thus, the faculty employed the teaching strategies they had been exposed to in the countries they were trained in. This faculty decided to work together, learn from each other despite differing clinical philosophies. The faculty was incredibly dedicated to patient care and had the passion to teach!”

Peter Edgelow, Barbara Stevens and Linda Van Hoesen, along with Jim and Jennifer Lynn teach the Australian Approach based on Geoff Maitland’s principles. Bob Simpson teaches the approach from James Cyraix of Great Britain. Eileen Vollowitz and Dennis Morgan teaches the Norwegian Approach, from Freddy Kaltenborn and Olaf Evjenth. And to round things out, the McKenzie Approach and principles of Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation PNF are also taught.
