Become a Master Clinician

Learn the KIME Rehab Continuum

Our evidence based courses are proven in clinical care to advance clients from pain to performance using our Rehabilitation Movement Continuum. No random exercises with little purpose here. We believe in evaluating individuals, identifying limiting factors, meeting people at their level and building them back to their desired performance.



We believe there are specific exercise progressions that work 80% of the time. The master clinician is responsible to identify when the 80% isn’t working and needs to make a modification. Becoming a Master Clinician is about knowing WHEN TO DO WHAT. It isn’t which exercise, which hands on technique, or which modality to use. It’s about when to use a specific intervention and understanding why. This is what we do, this is what we teach. Level-up your understanding of effective exercise interventions and BUILD YOUR OWN INDIVIDUALIZED TRAINING PLAN to fit your goals.
