Body Gears Hosted a Weekend Course with Dr. Hartman

Body Gears had the unique experience of hosting the world-renowned Dr. Laurie Hartman, DO, PhD, at our clinic. Dr. Hartman of The UCSF Physical Therapy Outpatient Faculty Practice has been teaching osteopathic and manipulative techniques for over 50 years. His teaching has profoundly affected rehabilitative care, including his authorship of “The Handbook of Osteopathic Technique”.

During this weekend course, 30 of the nations top physical therapists converged at Body Gears’ clinic for intensive training in some of the newest and most effective techniques in our field. Several Body Gears physical therapists had the rare opportunity for hands-on mentorship from Dr. Hartman to further advance their skills. Attendees honed skills in advanced manual techniques including high velocity low amplitude joint mobilizations on the cervical and lumbar spine. The event embodied Body Gears’ spirit of collaboration, innovation, and continuous professional growth and coincided with our core mission to provide our patients with exemplary care.
