Course info:

While many therapists specialize in certain subdomains, the vast majority work with a large variety of patient populations, treating a wide array of pathologies. These therapists must be ‘generalists’.

It is therefore essential to operate within an evidence -based framework that can be modified to meet this wide variety.

Any clinical encounter and rehabilitation process ultimately boils down to the following categories:

1) Evaluation

2) Planning

3) Implementation

4) Communication

(The EPIC framework)

With this framework, clinicians can play an invaluable role in helping any patient return to their optimal lifestyle.


This two-day course was developed specifically for outpatient orthopedic clinicians who are looking to expand their knowledge and enhance their clinical reasoning.

By completing this course, attendees will have proficiency in the following:

  • Understanding motivational interviewing, mind styles and behavioral packaging, which help foster therapeutic alliance.
  • Identifying red flags and yellow flags and remaining vigilant throughout entire rehab process.
  • Highlighting positive aspects of the patient’s presentation.
  • Fundamental UL and LL Orthopedic examination.
  • Management of common UL and LL conditions, including tendinopathies.

  • Understanding the concept of ‘Ecosystem’ and how it helps patients to better manage loads.
  • Applying Motor learning, OPTIMAL theory, strength drills and comprehensive capacity drills
