Gain over 150 evidence-based techniques and tips to correct posture, decrease pain, increase function and mobility, and get your client feeling strong again.

 

 

Can you think of a time where you used a common technique and it negatively affected one of your older clients?

I can. Earlier in my career, I had strategies that weren't adaptable to my client’s lifestyle and didn't fit their purpose for coming to me. I’d spend hours using tools that didn't help them gain more function, flexibility or strength at the pace either of us wanted. Some of the exercises even caused them more pain.

My client’s degenerative conditions were holding them back…

… and so was I by not having the right techniques.

Until I discovered a series of modifications and techniques that fit new and advanced clients, could be practiced at home and stabilized the spine in a way I’d never seen before. My clients were suddenly stronger, stood straighter, and could crawl on the floor at 91 years-old.

With these evidence-based techniques, I feel confident in every session and my clients leave my office with stronger, flexible bodies that make them feel like they’re young again. Take away over 150 exercises for different areas of your client’s body and gain guidelines for exercise that I’ve developed after nearly 30 years.

Help your client regain their strength, posture, and confidence when you join me in this online course.

Great combo of movements. I am glad to see and hear about core. Our clinic has been trying to emphasize core stability in young people. These combo movements will be a great addition for them.

Significant coverage of exercise modification for de-conditioned patients and patients with pain or cognitive issues. Seminar was more educational than originally anticipated with exercises that can be taken to the clinic next day.
