OUR COURSES

Have you ever wondered how a lumbar instability can lead to medial knee pain, or how a thoracic lesion can lead to shoulder dysfunction? Our courses consistently build on a foundation that starts with an understanding of components of a thorough patient history, screen, and bio-mechanical assessment. We guide you in a growing understanding of clinical reasoning and regional interdependence that will prepare you to search out the culprit causing the pain and dysfunction, and not just the victim of the dysfunction. You will be given the manual therapy tools, neuromuscular re-education skills, and concepts for home programs that will transform the way you practice physical therapy.
