Athletes perform repetitive tasks over and over again. If clinicians understand the causative biomechanics that drive these chronic injuries, we can stop addressing symptoms, and start fixing the imbalances at the source. While this talk will focus around athletes, the strategies outlined will help identify limiters in your non-athlete population as well.

This presentation on sports pain management is geared towards Acupuncturists, Dentists, Chiropractic Physicians, Massage Therapists, Naturopathic Physicians, Nurses, Nurse Practitioners, Pharmacists, Physical Therapists, Physicians, Physician Assistants, Psychologists, Social Workers, and allied health care providers involved in pain treatment.
The learning objectives of this course include: Defining the stresses on bones and soft tissues that drive chronic injury patterns, identifying the deficits in a patient’s mobility/stability, and demonstrating success in fixing biomechanical imbalances to prevent chronic symptoms.
