Description:

It is no secret that at the heart of successful injury rehabilitation, and the maintenance and improvement of bodily performance is a sound exercise and/or movement program. Many Therapists possess excellent hands-on skills, but unfortunately this passive approach to manual therapy can only bring about limited outcomes with our patients and clients. We need to get our patients and clients to move!!

 

Through combining the principles of Functional Anatomy, Biomechanics, and Exercise Physiology, this course focuses on the foundations of Remedial / Therapeutic Exercise. The purpose is to reconnect Manual Therapists and Movement Therapists with the foundational knowledge necessary to design safe and effective exercise programs and improve therapeutic outcomes.
