Course Description

Discover how to effectively spot common biomechanical issues with athletes and how to manage, and correct, common running technique mistakes. Learn how to make smart, evidence-based training recommendations to your patients and immediately reduce their injury rate. How to use the “Joint-by-Joint” approach to assess and treat your patients more effectively. Learn a variety of “hands on” manual medicine techniques to manage common lower extremity injuries in your patients. I will walk you through all of the common injuries in the lower extremity and pelvis, and show you exactly how to treat them. Myofascial techniques, Graston, Kinesiotaping, mobility drills, and stability/strengthening exercises for all of those conditions. Low-tech, simple techniques you can start using immediately on your patients.
