A revolutionary concept in physical therapy
Pediatric Integrative Manual Therapy (PIMT) is a revolutionary concept in physical therapy for the assessment and treatment of different musculoskeletal conditions in infants and children.
PIMT is everything you need to assess and treat dysfunctions of joints and tissue with manual therapy in infants and children, with a deep knowledge of the development of the nervous system and the keys to stimulate it.
PIMT Training is divided into 3 basic levels and different advanced seminars.
Pediatric Integrative Manual Therapy and Introduction to the Development of the Nervous System
This level establishes the base of training in integrative manual therapy and integrates the different aspects of structural and functional corrections.
Student will develop basic competences for the assessment and management of the spine and the limbs, regarding both the joints and the different tissues.
The course presents the biomechanics of birth and its consequences for the spine of the newborn.
Assessment and management of the development of the nervous system from an integrative model in Pediatric Manual Therapy
In this level, students will learn how to assess the degree of development of the nervous system in infants and children, and how to find the biomechanical aspects related to joints and tissues that might have prevented a proper development.
It presents the necessary stimuli for an infant at the vestibular, tactile and proprioceptive levels for an ideal neuro-sensory-motor development
It also includes the consequences that mechanical and proprioceptive dysfunctions have in future coordination, balance, attention and academic performance.
Students will develop the competences to treat the body structures that have a direct influence on these developmental disorders.
Assessment and treatment of the skull and the face from an integrative model in Pediatric Manual Therapy
This level is a great course of manual therapy on the pediatric skull. Babies cannot be treated like adults from a cranial perspective. The anatomic and physiological characteristics of the head of the baby require specific knowledge and interventions.
The course develops the assessment and treatment of the skull and the face of the child with regard to conditions like plagiocephaly, otitis, apnea caused by difficulties with retronasal air flow, nasolacrimal duct obstruction, cephalalgia, oculomotor disorders, etc.
