A multidisciplinary approach is the gold standard of patient care, but it is hard to find a training that incorporates the best of the best from physical therapy, chiropractic, massage therapy, and strength and conditioning.

But that changes now. This is the all-star approach to a HUGE variety of manual medicine techniques, joint mobilization skills, myofascial massage, assessment, and modern pain science where you finally get it all.

With an emphasis on lower extremity and pelvis, we are going to uncover:

  • Functional movement assessments that consider the demands on the entire kinetic chain
  • How you can safely speed up the recovery process for a variety of orthopedic diagnoses including: plantar fasciitis, achilles tendinosis, patellar tendonopathy, Iliotibial Band
  • Syndrome, thoracic and lumbar sprain/strains, and more!
  • Advanced drills & exercise progressions to confidently return your patients to unrestricted activity or sport!
  • DOZENS of new strategies to accelerate your outcomes for patients of any age/ability

We’ll take today’s peer-reviewed research and translate it into real-world and practical solutions you can implement the very next day. You’ll also learn proven low-tech & simple techniques you can start using immediately for your patients in any setting.
