A 40-hour continuing education course on the One80 System designed for orthopedic injury prevention and rehabilitation will take place in New York City March 8-10 and March 22-24.

During the course, Rhett Polka, PT, DPT, OCS, CSCS—owner and founder of One80 Physical Therapy, a multi-office practice based in Colorado—will teach participants the One80 System, an intensive manual therapy system based on anatomy, physiology, biomechanics, manual therapy, and functional exercise.

“The One80 System is an evaluation and treatment system for physical therapists, chiropractors, athletic trainers, and other licensed medical professionals looking to maximize results and patient satisfaction,” Polka says in a media release. “The patent pending system is built upon a scientific base that requires students to think critically while applying unique concepts. We believe that challenging the status quo and conventional thinking yields unique and reproducible results.”

The course itself includes 26 lab hours, earning licensed professionals up to 40 Continuing Education Units (CEUs) and a One80 System certification.

Upon course completion, students will be able to:

  • Describe the scientific root-cause of injury.
  • Draw logical conclusions from functional screens leading to implementation of treatment strategies.
  • Explain how aspects of human physiology, anatomy and biomechanics apply to the One80 System functional screen, Neuromuscular Facilitation Tests (NFT), manual therapy techniques, and functional exercise prescription.
  • Apply critical thinking to the One80 System’s evaluation and treatment strategies.
  • Implement all aspects of the One80 System, including testing and palpating over 130 muscles.

The course will take place at Phlex NY, 370 Lexington Ave, New York, NY. The cost of the course is $1,200, which includes both weekends and all course materials.
