Functional Therapeutics Course

Treat the most common MSK conditions

19 hours of hands on course teaching

The course is accredited for 18 Category A CE credits for Naturopathic Doctors, and presents the most recent research and understanding of the assessment and treatment of the human body.

The course provides:

  1. Functional understanding of the human body as it pertains to movement and injury
  2. Treatment Blueprints for all the most common MSK disorders
  3. Assessment strategies for all aspects of the body
  4. Recent research on the use of electro-stim and acupuncture
  5. Depth of understanding of fascial system and its role in MSK related disorders

The course will present the most recent research on the functional model of care utilized in treatment of MSK injuries as oppose to the mechanistic model taught in the past and in the current educational institutes.

From there you will be guided through assessment strategies from head to toe to allow for clear direction for care; this will entail functional testing, movement pattern assessment, neuro-motor behaviour and orthopaedic tests. And finally, you’ll be guided through the treatment strategies for the common MSK disorders utilizing acupuncture, joint mobilization/manipulation, corrective exercises and various soft tissue approaches along with blueprints to utilize in practice. 

The course will utilize cadaver analysis for clarity in understanding of the use of acupuncture and the theories presented.

The course is very hands on and limited to 8 people to allow for as much 1 on 1 interaction with me as possible.

The course runs Friday 6-9pm and Saturday & Sunday from 9-5pm.
