DEA Meeting: Maude Cejudo Physical Therapy

Rob Eads introduced Dr. Maude Cejudo with Dallas Manual Therapy.  Rob first met Maude when she joined the DEA; he has enjoyed getting to know her, especially through a business group in the DEA.  Rob participated in Maude's doctoral research study and she fixed his shoulder pain!  She is very good at what she does!

Maude started in neurology and rehab.  When she went out in the world to work, she found that everyone has orthopedic problems, so she got a Masters in Physical Therapy and then a Manual Therapy Doctorate and then her PhD.  She wants to find the root of the problem and help you recover from it.

Maude used her skeleton, Honore, and also great photographs of specific areas and work she does to fix pain in many areas of the body.  There are several common problems with the neck, shoulder and shoulder blade.  There are actually 4 joints in the shoulder which can each get affected, which is why the shoulder can have so much trouble; but she can usually have good results in 2 months.  Problems in the thoracic area....

No One Wants to Feel Like a Hound!

Great idea:  give a presentation and share knowledge where you are an industry expert!  You will be deep in your comfort zone and everyone will have a great time learning!  You could even join with another DEA member and each give some great tips!  When you are teaching in your area of expertise, you can be one of the strongest salesmen for you and your company! 

Yes, we've got three presentation dates open in August; specifically, August 7, 14, and 28.  Call or email Dianna today!  Or, book you presentation date for the fall, and she won't be hounding your for August!
