Learning objectives

In the Post Rehab Specialist program the focus is on restoring optimal movement to the body for improved function. Instead of approaching movement impairments as a series of problems to fix, we teach you to focus on what is working, and to figure out how to support that level of function while addressing the impairments simultaneously. You learn assessment skills related to multiple movement impairments and conditions, as well as simple protocols and problem-solving strategies to create ease of movement and functional support in the body, head to toe. Key exercise protocols are presented in every workshop to help restore optimal movement function in the spine and limbs, as well as specific modification protocols based on client needs.
