What others have said about the course:

Thanks for a thought provoking weekend! – Jamie Robertson, PT

This course organized my thinking better than any other course I’ve attended.

I just wanted to personally thank you for your seminar.  It really gave me clarity on many of the rehabilitation principles, especially motor control using the planes. – Ian Ledger, DC

I would consider it one of the best courses I have attended to date. The application of everything that was gone over in the Accelerated Rehab course was straight forward and the workbook that accompanied the course has been a tool that I have not let leave my side as I work with patients and athletes in their training. – Erik Haroldson, DC

Core Skills Course Outline:ISCRS logo

  • Functional model overview
  • Functional assessment:  Mag 7 and follow up assessments [train your eye and expand your toolbox]
  • Liebenson’s Clinical Audit Process  [CAP] (in detail with examples).  [How to use your assessment results to drive your exercise selection]
  • Discussion of how several models can fit together.  Combining the work of the Prague school (Janda & Lewit) & DNS, FMS & SFMA, McGill, Butler & Moseley to create synergy.  Find the strengths and limitations; harness the power and avoid the pitfalls. Including addition of current training theory and application for efficient, rapid results.
  • Sparing strategies & finding the functional range [avoid aggravation and encourage activity through the acute stages]
  • Mobilization (emphasis on thoracic, hip, ankle) [enhancing active ROM and proprioception through active mobility exercises]
  • Discussion of mobility and stability.  When to choose which tool.  Review of the CAP.
  • Core stabilization (creating an anchor, while maintaining mobility and the ball and socket joints).  Training the orchestra to play the right tune at the right time.  Then working to increase the volume and duration.  [create harmony of breathing and bracing, then add endurance and power.]
  • Motor control theory, motor learning, and cueing.  How to get your exercise selection to transfer into sport and ADLs. How to achieve retention so your progress lasts.
