In this course you’ll learn how to effectively communicate with your patients about pain, whether it’s acute or chronic. You’ll understand how to implement movements strategies to not only promote confidence and resilience in your patients, but also to help them gain confidence to move through and improve their ADLs. You’ll gain the understanding to do therapeutic exercise and movements right in your treatment room, without having to use a gym, and also without having to refer out to another professional for exercise. This in turn will increase your patients' confidence in you, and will also put more money in your pocket because you won’t have to refer them to someone else once you have the understanding of how to do therapeutic exercise in your treatment room.
