“This course is a must-do for any physical therapist who wants to get a better handle as to what is going on with the person in front of them. The “Link” between posture, movement, and gait analysis to drive your physical exam makes for superior and efficient assessment, planning, and ultimately, superior results. All of my staff have either attended or will attend the Movement Links series because the training received results in a better patient experience and clinical outcome.”
