MANUAL ASSESSMENT AND TREATMENT OF THE AGING PATIENT

December 6, 2019 - December 8, 2019

$650

BOC Essential Level

This class will present  fundamental concepts of the aging patient through their gerontology phase and provide practical and theoretical perspectives to help you gain a broader understanding of this type of patient. Worldwide, the proportion of aged 60 years or older is expected to increase from 10% worldwide to 22% in 2050, with the steepest rise in the next 25 years. In order to better manage this aging populace clinicians need to change their treatment approach to match their immunological, biomechanical and physiological changes associated with aging.
