Teaching at MSU

Teaching at MSU

The founder and owner of OMT Specialists, Dr. J. Logan Cooper, graduated from The University of Maryland Baltimore, School of Medicine, Department of Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Science in 2008, where he was Class President, Vice President of the Student Special Interest Group of the American Academy of Orthopedic Manual Physical Therapists (www.aaompt.org), and recipient of the Kendall Outstanding Graduate Award for “Overall leadership, academic excellence, and clinical proficiency.”

After graduating from PT school, Dr. Cooper began advanced training in manual medicine at Michigan State University (MSU) in their College of Osteopathic Medicine (COM). In 2010, he was offered the opportunity to table train under the instructors in the Continuing Medical Education (CME) department for the Principles of Manual Medicine course. After that year, Dr. Cooper was offered full Clinical Assistant Professor within MSU’s COM CME department, and for the last eight years, he has been teaching alongside some of the best and brightest minds within the field of manual medicine.

Dr. Cooper’s philosophy is that an expert is someone who does the basics better than anyone else. Teaching licensed medical doctors (MDs), osteopathic physicians (DOs), and other physical therapists (PTs) from all over the world has kept Dr. Cooper firmly rooted in the basics while building on that foundation with advanced knowledge, principles, and techniques from the people who literally wrote the book(s) on how to practice manual medicine.

Dr. Cooper’s courses at MSU include:

  • Principles of Manual Medicine
  • Muscle Energy I
  • Advance Muscle Energy with Clinical Correlation (MET II)
  • Mobilization with Impulse (HVLA)
  • Myofascial Release

Our Physical Therapy Philosophy

At OMT Specialists, we believe in being guided by principles and not being a slave to any one specific method as, unfortunately, there is no one technique or “silver bullet” for every problem for every person.
