This is NOT JUST another course telling you movement is important or showing you some new exercises but a course about PEOPLE and how to actually apply movement and exercise to them in a systematic and informed way. You could describe it as clinical reasoning for exercise and rehab!

Many therapists struggle taking modern academia around pain and movement and translate it into practical application. This course will outline how to simply apply both physical & cognitively driven components for a therapeutic approach based around HUMANS rather than simply their structures. Functional Therapeutic Movement is a course designed to truly encompass a top down (cognitive) and a bottom up (physical movement) based approach to therapy.

This course is lecture format.
