Description

Maximize Clinical Outcomes Utilizing the Mind-Body Connection

Our job as therapists is not only to treat, but to provide tools to support treatment between visits, and to teach preventative maintenance for the future. This recording will equip you with techniques and concepts that significantly improve patient (and therapist) mind-body awareness and its application to movement, therapeutic exercise, passive manual techniques, stress reduction, and pain management. Participate in a variety of mindfulness-based strategies and learn how to integrate them into your already existing treatment plans for neuromuscular re-education, therapeutic exercise, and proprioception techniques, adapting all of these to each individual client. By tapping into your own mind-body awareness, you can help patients break the cycle of stress-related patterns that do not always respond well to standard treatment or exercise, or are interfering with their rehabilitative progress.
