In an effort to increase further awareness about Manual Physical Therapy, Hands-On Seminars will award $100,000 in scholarship funds to Physical Therapists who want to learn more about Manual Therapy.
In a recent Press Release Hands-On Seminars co-founder Konstantine Rizopoulos noted that Prescription drugs and invasive procedures such a surgery are linked to many complications, poor outcomes and even death. Research shows that Manual Physical Therapy offers the most cost effective treatment of pain and other musculoskeletal problems?
"The research points to manual physical therapy as a key answer to the problem" said Dr. Dimitrios Kostopoulos co-founder of Hands-On Seminars. "We are taking this initiative because we want to give the opportunity to Physical Therapists to expand their knowledge and expertise in manual therapy and this way they can make an even greater difference in the lives of their patients" continued Dr. Kostopoulos.
