As Doctors of Physical Therapy, and direct access healthcare professionals, it is up to us to be able to provide the highest level, most thorough, care available, within the scope of our practice. Always driving to be leaders in the Physical Therapy community, the team of therapists at Evolution Sports will be hosting this Diagnostic Ultrasound course. Every one of our staff members will also be completing the coursework and working towards RMSK certification upon its completion.
To provide instruction for the course, we have enlisted the help of Dr. Randy Moore from MSK Masters
. “Randy E. Moore is a Doctor of Chiropractic and a Registered Diagnostic Medical Sonographer. Since 1994, his work has focused entirely on using diagnostic ultrasound to evaluate the musculoskeletal system. His expertise is called upon by ultrasound manufacturers (GE, Sonosite,Ultrasonix, Esaote,Terason,Phillips) and teaching institutions (National Institute of Health, Beth Israel Hospital NY, Walter Reed, University of Dayton, University of Kentucky, Temple, and Loma Linda) throughout the United States….Dr. Randy Moore is dedicated to shortening the learning curve for medical practitioners, medical sonographers, physician assistants and any allied health professional as they develop expertise in Musculoskeletal Sonography.”
The goal of this education is to be able to use technology within the scope of our practice to diagnose musculoskeletal injuries, and to do so at a cost much cheaper than MRI and facilitate the proper conservative treatment approach or aid in the referral to appropriate specialists. While Diagnostic Ultrasound is helpful in guided injections. It can also be highly beneficial to guided Dry Needling techniques.
The class will be held at Evolution Sports in Cockeysville, MD. The cost of the class is $700 per clinician. There will be an e-book purchase which is a separate cost of $115. We will have a limited number of spaces available. If you are interested in attending this class, please email Dr. Morgan Johnson
with your Name, Address, Place of Employment, and phone number. Applicants will be notified of their approval and then arrangements for payment and enrollment will be made at that point. We will also be arranging for special group purchase pricing on high-quality refurbished and warrantied US machines and these will be extended to any course attendants.
We look forward to having you join us for this awesome class!
Evolution Sports was founded by Dr. Morgan Johnson in 2008. He has worked as a Physical Therapist for 17 years in an eclectic orthopedics, sports medicine, and manual therapy setting. Throughout years of practice, Dr. Johnson, has been trained in a variety of manual therapy approaches. He has been a certified Manual Therapist through MAPS since 2008, has been certified through two different organizations in Dry Needling
, and has been Board Certified dually in Orthopedics and Sports Physical Therapy. He holds 5 strength and conditioning and olympic lifting certifications. Dr. Johnson is currently also completing his Fellowship training through the AAMT
and will receive a second manual therapy certification this Fall as a Cert. SMT (Certified Spinal Manipulative Therapy) in addition to receiving the Diploma in Osteopractic Physical Therapy credentials. He has a highly trained staff of clinicians who have also obtained certifications in manual therapy, Board Certifications in Orthopedics, and have been practicing Dry Needling for greater than 5 years.
In order to bring up the standards in Physical Therapy practice, Evolution Sports is proud to offer clinical mentorship opportunities. There are several advantages to this. First of all, Maryland has recently passed new regulations on Dry Needling requiring at least 80 hours of coursework and mentorship hours, there will be many clinicians who are currently practicing Dry Needling, who will not have the necessary requirements to meet these new regulations. Secondly, There are many clinicians, whom since graduation, have landed into positions where their own clinical mentorship is lacking either because there are no seasoned clinicians in their clinic, there’s a lack of time in the day to advance their clinical skillsets, or they haven’t found the proper continuing education tract to follow in order to become an expert clinician. Clinical Education is of paramount importance to the values and services that Evolution Sports strives for and it is for this reason that we offer these opportunities to clinicians across the country.
Clinical Mentorship opportunities can be structured according to the clinicians goals, i.e. what skillsets they feel they are lacking, or in semi-structured weekend courses as is the case with our Dry Needling mentorship program.
While the cost standards for fellowship training generally ranges from $25-60 per hour, Evolution Sports offers a flat rate of $25/hour for Dry Needling or manual therapy mentorship performed “in-house” or $60/hour for clinical mentorship performed in your clinical settings plus any additional costs for travel.
If you are interested in signing up for clinical mentorship in Manual Therapy or Dry Needling, please do not hesitate to contact Morgan Johnson
by email to make arrangements.
