Traditional no-pain-no-gain interventions can be counterproductive, activating self-defense mechanisms that freeze muscles, compress nerves, sharpen pain, and diminish outcomes.

And when these “tried and true” treatments fail, clients can give up on therapy completely — leaving you questioning your effectiveness and worrying that your treatment techniques are out of date.

This master class recording will upgrade your skills and reinvigorate your practice with cutting-edge solutions you can immediately apply with the clients you treat each day.

Watch today’s leading experts as they share new techniques and tests that will allow you to identify orthopedic problems, prevent plateaus, reduce re-injury and enhance outcomes in fewer sessions than ever before! Built on today’s best practices, this program will show you how to better identify root causes of impairment and maximize results by combining multiple approaches, from the McKenzie Method® to technology-guided movement screening, IASTM, cupping, taping and exercise.

Best of all you’ll walk away with your Certificate in Orthopedic Rehabilitation, making you a go-to resource, and letting clients know that you’ve invested the time and effort to provide treatment at the highest level.

Don’t let your practice grow obsolete!

Confidently guide your next patient toward rapid improvements with today’s top methods in orthopedic rehabilitation.
