1980-Choosing a Foundation

Feedback from alumni strongly suggests that clinical reasoning, the foundation of Australian Approach, makes the greatest impact on their ability to manage patients.

As described by Barbara Stevens: “Even in the beginning of the program when McKenzie’s influence as well as Norwegian philosophies were taught; the faculty realized that teaching multiple approaches was not working due to the lack of a concrete manner of thinking and teaching.”

Joe Farrell and Margaret Anderson joins the faculty. Joe Farrell earned his master’s degree in manipulative therapy in Australia and Margaret Anderson studied with Maitland in Australia. The Australian Approach is adopted as the primary teaching philosophy with integration of other OMPT approaches, therapeutic exercise and self-management concepts.
