Schedule at a glance


After sustaining a loss of function, patients and 3rd party payers want immediate change. Rehab clinicians rightfully expect the same efficiency from skills-based education. This 2-day training will not disappoint - you will get a wealth of information for immediate application with guaranteed results.

You will discover how to approach assessment and rehab differently. If you’re still relying on the standard single plane assessment methods, you’re missing a big piece of the puzzle – functional, real-world application! Level up your treatment with multiplanar active assessments that are easy to apply to the whole body. Uncover the unique properties of concurrent mobility and stability throughout the kinetic chain to enable whole body functional movement patterns.

This comprehensive, joint by joint approach seamlessly transitions from assessment to treatment. You’ll learn today’s best practices to:

  • Quickly determine the actual anatomic contributor to the loss of mobility and function
  • Integrate manual therapy techniques – trigger point release, IASTM, vibration, joint mobilization and more
  • Incorporate strengthening with an emphasis on dynamic stability and graded progression
  • Real world application that accommodates all fitness levels from independent ADLs up to elite athletic performance

Best of all, no expensive equipment needed. You’ll discover novel approaches utilizing basic supplies including exercise bands/tubing, foam, physio balls and more. Look no further because it doesn’t get better than assessment, manual therapy techniques and stabilization exercise – ALL in one course!

Day One

Foundations of Mobility
  • Identify biomechanics of major joints in the UE/LE kinetic chains and how this relates to stability and function
  • Examination of how mobility is restricted – connective tissue, muscle, etc
  • Strategies to address the above limitations
Foundations of Stability
  • Examination of how static and dynamic stability impact function
  • Loading, eccentric control, multi directional sports
Postural Dysfunction
  • Etiology and cause
  • Examination of postural and phasic muscles and impact on movement
  • Fascia – function, role, adaptations
  • Upper/lower cross syndrome examined – postural vs phasic muscles
  • Trigger points – physiology, active vs latent, literature review of treatment methods and outcomes
Movement Assessment
  • Upper Body and Lower Body
  • Gross assessment techniques
  • Dynamic and multiplanar functional movement assessment methods
How to Improve Mobility
  • Manual therapy techniques
  • Soft tissue techniques: vibration, IASTM, soft tissue techniques
  • Active management: stretching, contract/relax
Movements, Equipment and Exercises to Improve Mobility
  • Strategies to address body regions for maximum return and efficiency
  • Application of force couples
  • Create a plan without specialized equipment that blends seamlessly with home program development
  • Progression from single to triplanar movement – low functional demand to athletic application
  • Methodology driven by static and dynamic mobility AND stability
Day Two

How to Create Static Stability
  • Upper extremities, lower extremities, torso
  • Management strategies for all environments
    • Body weight, manual resistance, tubing/bands, foam, physio balls, etc
Creating Dynamic Stability
