Orthopaedic Manipulative Therapy (OMT) for the Lower Extremity is a powerful clinical reference and teaching tool for any student, clinician or educator involved in the practice or the teaching of manipulative/manual therapy for musculoskeletal disorders. This essential and comprehensive mobile companion provides manipulative techniques for the hip, knee, foot, and ankle presented in the context of best current evidence for use in treating lower extremity disorders. Each technique has detailed, step by step written instructions as well as corresponding high-quality video demonstration that includes audio instruction (note: the video files download to your device upon installation and therefore do not require an internet connection).

Summaries of the most recent clinical research involving manipulative therapy are provided for each region (hip, knee, ankle, and foot) with links to PUBmed abstracts of relevant clinical studies. Additionally a brief summary of the history of manipulative therapy is presented, as well as definitions of terminology.

OMT UE Features:

•Instructions for 50 orthopaedic manipulative techniques for the lower extremity
•High-quality video demonstration for each technique performed by fellowship trained orthopaedic manual therapists
•Each video includes two angles of the technique being performed. Therefore, there’s no guessing the important or even subtle details of the techniques performance (pause, rewind, forward within the video)
•Each video includes corresponding audio instructions that describe the technique as it’s being performed
•Each technique includes common diagnoses or “indications” for which the technique is typically performed
•Techniques include high-velocity thrust joint manipulations, non-thrust joint mobilizations, muscle stretching and “contract-relax” stretching techniques
•Summaries of the current state of the research on OMT for each lower extremity region (hip, knee, ankle, and foot)
•Links to PUBmed abstracts of research on OMT for lower extremity disorders (internet connection required)
•Easily email PUBmed abstracts of the pertinent studies to yourself or colleagues from within the app
•Historical overview of manipulative therapy

Game Changing Clinically Relevant App

Clinically Relevant Technologies has done a terrific job assembling an app with a comprehensive library of manual therapy techniques for the lower extremity. The instructions are very precise, and the evidence summaries are a very useful reminder of the "why", "when", and for "who". The best aspect of the app in my opinion though is the "how", which is provided by the high resolution videos with voice overlay, which makes it easy to replicate the specific hand positions and directions of movement. There is some clunkiness in the user interface, but this is simply due to early stage development and I suspect future revisions will address this. The app does take some time to download due to the high resolution vids (so be sure to download via wifi on your iPad or via iTunes on your computer and then sync...don't use 3G connection), but this is well worth it. The "raw materials" of the app (instructions, videos, research evidence, etc.) are absolutely terrific, and I can use "out of the box" without a hitch. These types of clinical apps from Clinically Relevant Technologies are real game changers for clinicians and educators alike. Great work!

Clinically Relevant Technology does it again

I highly recommend this app along with the entire catalog of apps from CRT. THey have knocked it out of the ball park with these apps. An easy to follow interface with test properties and videos which allow you to pick the best test or technique for the patient you have sitting in front of you. Who doesn't have that day where you forget about something or your technique gets sloppy. Now you have a quick reference to get you back to the basics. I have taught several PTs techniques and they one thing they tell me is that when they get back to the clinic they forget some of the nuances of a technique that help them be successful. Now they have a reference right there to provide visual feedback to them instantly. Keep up the good work CRT.

Finally a resource that I can use everyday on the fly!!

Just like the UE and Spine apps, this app rocks! I can't tell you how many times I've been seeing patients and I want to perform a specific manual therapy technique, but I kind-of forgot how to do it. So now I can just excuse myself to the restroom, pull out my iphone, read the description and even watch a quick video. it's genius! It's with me all the time, it's quick, well organized, and since the videos are not web-bases, I can do this anywhere! As someone else mentioned, this definitely is a clinical practice game changer and easily worth the $. I so wish that I had this has a student.... I highly recommend them all to students, clinicians, and teachers!
