Bridge the Gap in Knee Care

Self Paced. Online. Everything you need to know to bridge the gap in building a healthy knee.

This course is a part of the Bridge the Gap series where we dive into motion assessment of the knee, a process for regression/progression of movement and exercise towards meeting the intended goal - while having a guiding framework in place for testing to help the coach and clinician make safe and educated decisions when progressing their clients. You will learn testing protocols, exercise regressions and progressions, coaching cues, and practical strategies to incorporate.
