PT-02G is the same course as PT-02, but discounts apply for 2 or more registrants.

This 2-day advanced training is designed to have immediate clinical applications, and is dedicated to those health care professionals who want to learn a comprehensive Manual Therapy approach to cervical spine pathology.

Instead of prescribing to a single, isolated manual therapy school of thought, Hands-On Seminars teaches a Comprehensive Integrative Manual Therapy approach to Cervical Spine Pathology. This evidence-based program integrates the 47 years of clinical experience of Hands-On Seminars founders Dimitrios Kostopoulos, PT, PhD, DSc, MCMT and Konstantine Rizopoulos, PT, FABS, MCMT with some of the teachings of leading manual therapy experts such as:

  • Janet Travell, MD
  • David Simons, MD
  • Geoffrey Maitland, PT
  • David Butler, PT
  • Leon Chaitow, DO
  • Dr. Lawrence Jones
  • Freddy Kaltenborn, PT
  • Stanley V. Paris Ph.D., P.T.
  • Robin McKenzie, PT
  • Vladimir Janda, MD
  • Karel Lewit, MD, & others.

This eclectic approach results in selecting the most effective, efficient, evidence-based Manual Therapy techniques for the specific pathology.


Differential diagnosis, evaluation and treatment methods will be taught in extensive lab sessions.

     Customer Testimonials

I applied a lot of the principals you taught me right away this past Monday with excellent results! I have yet to see my boss so I can rave about you! He was taught by Dimitrios 3 years ago or so. I just want to thank you so much, for the gift of your knowledge and expertise, that you shared with us
