As a rehabilitation professional, you often wear multiple hats: prevention, emergency care, acute and chronic care, strength and conditioning, performance enhancement and more.

Filled with robust strategies for every hat you wear, this course is broken down into 7 easy-to-digest sessions and provides practical strategies that you can easily apply in clinic right away:

  • Functional testing algorithm for clinical decision making following an injury
  • Step by step guide for returning to activity (applicable for work AND sports!)
  • A better understanding of the various types of myofascial cups and their unique uses
  • Targeted myofascial cupping techniques and their connection to clinical issues
  • Concise framework to use the tools you already own – and likely overlook!
  • Progression and regression strategies for therapeutic exercise
  • New evidence-based interventions that greatly reduce post-op muscle atrophy, without putting too much stress on the joints and tendons
