This extension of the Core Stabilization Course will take you to the next step of Rehabilitation. This course covers the basics of Core Stabilization and teaches you how to modify ANY exercise for the specific needs of each individual patient. It will also explain some of the finer details needed for complete rehabilitation, including the cascading effects of muscle imbalances as well as the factors of rehabilitation. These factors and principles can easily be applied to ALL patients from competitive athletes to couch potatoes. We will also learn easy, functional assessments that accurately identify dysfunctional movement patterns and solidify effective treatment protocols with in minutes.

The object of this course is to educate doctors in the full spectrum of stabilization exercises. This spectrum includes factors of joint articulation, neuromuscular factors, myofascial factors, proprioceptive factors and factors of muscle physiology, which are essential in providing the best possible outcome for rehabilitation.

Once there is and understanding of the importance of including all of these factors in the rehabilitation process, it is then incumbent to understand the full array of techniques that must be used to improve all of these factors to complete the rehabilitation process.

Techniques included in this process will include proprioceptive exercises, plyometric exercises, stretching, resistance training exercises, and techniques in soft tissue manipulation and care.

Doctors will learn fast to implement methods of active care as outlined by the new Workman’s Compensation guidelines. These exercises can be performed at home of in the office and take only a few minutes a day to complete.
