Let’s be honest, being a modern clinician is a tough job. So much confusing & conflicting information in rehab & especially back pain rehab, and this can be really frustrating & sometimes baffling.
Therapeutic movement & exercise looks to cut through the confusion and help simplify & streamline how you approach rehab & back pain in an evidence-based way without all the silly BS & magical cures & claims.
It does this by bringing together the latest & best research & evidence into pain, back pain & movement & exercise sciences in a fun, interactive & practical way to keep you engaged, improve your clinical confidence & improve patient outcomes.
Be prepared to discuss, move & maybe even have your biases challenged. This is not just another exercise course that you could have just watched YouTube for, its understanding research better, improving communication, upskilling clinical reasoning & trimming away the unnecessary fluff. It goes way beyond just sets, reps & technique that often don’t apply well to treating people with pain anyway.
It will provide you with a flexible clinical framework that can be adapted to all types of patients especially those suffering from back pain but with principles that can be adapted to all areas of the body & humans in general.
This course has been taught in well over 30 countries around the world and to 100’s of clinicians.
