This 2-day course is geared towards the health care provider and fitness professional. With emerging research there is often the feeling that a traditional approach needs to be wholly discarded. Instead, this course helps the therapist to integrate the pain science and biopsychosocial model of pain with traditional biomechanical techniques.
