Moving with the Maestro: From Assessment to Independence

course overview

Learning how to assess movement and help your patients shouldn’t make your head explode. Pain science should be practical. If you spend an entire weekend at a course, you should be able to implement things on Monday.

Enter, Moving with the Maestro.

The reality is you’re likely already a very good provider. You’ve taken courses and you get positive outcomes, but you’re looking for a simplified approach and a way to really understand how it all fits together. I gotchu.

Moving with the Maestro provides every attendee with the foundation to better understand pain, better assess and identify dysfunction, and better understand the fundamentals of movement. It is not a deep-dive down any singular rabbit hole, or a dissertation about high-level concepts that will have you leaving the weekend more confused than when you arrived. Ain’t nobody got time for that.

In a single weekend you will learn how to identify mobility and stability dysfunctions, learn a practical approach to pain science, learn why we move the way we move, and learn how to better apply the tools you already have in your toolbox.

It’s time to simplify the concepts, connect the dots, and piece together all the information so that you not only feel confident, but excited walking into the clinic on Monday. Come move with the Maestro.

What is this course about?

This 2-day course is an introduction to how I assess and treat, with a heavy emphasis on the nervous system and of course, movement. This course is about instilling the fundamentals of both assessment and intervention that have brought me successful outcomes time and time again. This course is about gaining the confidence, and the skills, to simplify your treatments.

Who should attend this course?

This course is open to ANYONE who is looking to gain a fundamental understanding of how to assess movement and prescribe foundational exercises to help with movement dysfunction. If you've ever felt overwhelmed by biomechanics, if you've ever felt underprepared by your formal education, if you've ever wondered "does that nuanced stuff even matter?", then this is the course for you. This course is open to both students and professionals, and yes, students will ALWAYS receive a discount (see below for details).

Do I need a special degree to attend this course?

No. Physical therapists, PTAs, LMTs, DCs, ATCs, OTs, OTAs, personal trainers, strength and conditioning coaches, yoga teacher, pilates instructors, and anyone I might have missed, we open our doors to you!

Do you offer CEUs?

No. Obtaining CEUs is a SUPER involved process in and of itself, and that's not even taking into account the headache of multiple states and multiple professions. I have priced the course with the lack of CEU in mind, but if this stops you from taking the course, I respect your decision. I do understand that you need CEUs in order to maintain licensure, and in an effort to help you accomplish this but still be able to take the courses you want (because let's be honest, most of the good ones out there don't offer CEUs), I've partnered with Medbridge to save you some serious money on their annual membership. No, my course isn't on their platform, but plenty of other good ones are...and you can watch them all from home! Now you can get your CEUs and have enough money left over to attend those in-person courses. Win-win. Thanks for understanding
