Phenomenal Manual Therapy Resource!! - This app is fantastic! As a professor in an entry level physical therapy program, I think this app is the ideal comprehensive teaching/learning resource for manual therapy for the entire body. It's extremely well-organized and easy to use. It also strikes the perfect balance between being comprehensive enough to be the single source of manual therapy education without overwhelming students with hundreds of (often overlapping) techniques. The evidence summaries are similary comprehensive yet succinct. I highly recommend this app for students, faculty, and practicing clinicians!
