Physical Therapy Modalities
Instructor: Ronald Grant, DC, FICC, DAAPM
In this session of the Chiropractic Assistant Certification program Dr. Ronald Grant instructs your C.A. in the use of physical therapy modalities. Here is an opportunity for your valued Chiropractic Assistant to learn about the wide range of therapies available in a chiropractic office. He/she will learn what the modalities are, what they do, how they are applied and their indications and contraindications. Included in this session are definitions, terminology and general criteria and rules regarding the use of physical therapy modalities. Dr. Grant discusses and demonstrates the use of heat therapies including superficial heat, deep heat such as diathermy and ultrasound. He also demonstrates the use of cryotherapy, low frequency currents, high voltage therapy and interferential current, as well as traction and vibration, and the cutting edge use of laser and light therapy. Ample time is allowed for hands-on practice of the information presented. If your C.A. helps with your physical therapy procedures or you would like him/her to, then this is a class you won’t want them to miss. The excellent instruction from Dr. Grant can only be found here at the Logan College C.A. Certification Course. Dr. Ronald Grant is a graduate of National College of Chiropractic. He was an Associate Professor of Chiropractic and Basic Sciences at Logan College of Chiropractic where he taught physical therapy rationale and procedures.
