Moving with the Maestro: From Assessment to Independence

The goal of this course is to expose you to my thought processes and introduce you to the system that I use to assess and treat patients. This course is about sharing what I consider to be the best, and most universally applicable points from the courses I’ve taken, the books I’ve read, the patients I’ve treated, and the discussions I’ve had with good friends. I’ve borrowed the best from the best, mixed in my own flavor, and packaged it all into this course. This course is by no means exhaustive. It is by no means the be-all, end-all. It’s simply a kaleidoscope of concepts that want to pass on to you, so that you can turn the dial, create your scene, and be able to help whoever may be standing in front of you.

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 not about the sexy stuff, it’s not about the flashy stuff, it’s not about the stuff that will get you instafamous. 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, PTA, LMT, 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!
