With over 20 years of experience, Walt Fritz, PT, is sitting down to take a deep dive into all things manual therapy with me. Walt is an educator for all professions who provide manual therapy including PTs, OTs, massage therapists, and, yes, SLPs! He provides specialized training for SLPs in manual therapy for voice and swallowing and is an abundant wealth of knowledge in these areas.
Walt shares how his practice has changed over the last 20+, specifically how he empowers the patient and makes them a partner in therapy, more today than ever. He shares interesting research, past and present, that is shaping the manual therapy practice. If you work with voice and swallowing patients, this is an episode you won’t want to miss!
