This was an excellent course and is something I can begin using immediately.
Sister J. Celeste W., PA PT, Oct. 6, 2016

It was a very good course! It had a lot of evidenced-base info for exercises we use every day - sometimes properly, sometimes not. It talks of which exercises are best for which muscles. I found it very helpful.
Jennifer C., May. 5, 2016

I really enjoyed taking this course and getting additional exercises, which I will tweak for my pediatric clients. Thanks again.

excellent information
marlene c., Sep. 3, 2014

This was a FANTASTIC course! I learned so much from the material. The studies sited were so helpful and the detail was appreciated. It did take me much longer than 3 hours to complete the course. (at least 5+). I think it should be listed as a 4-5 hour course.
