Chronic pain can be physically, mentally and emotionally crippling—and it’s not easy to remedy. People living with chronic pain suffer every day. Many turn to painkilling medications for short- term relief, but the pain never fully goes away—and the side effects are rarely worth it.
As a Pain-Free Movement Specialist, you’ll know how to help clients overcome the pain that has dominated their lives—in some cases—for years.
Over six detailed modules, you will learn to help those in pain feel better, move better, and live more productive lives doing the things they enjoy!
Functional Anatomy & Biomechanics
The Sensory-Motor System
Pain Science & the Biopsychosocial Model
Function First Approach to Movement Assessments
Function First Approach to Programming Essentials
The Pain-Free Movement Specialist curriculum is the first of its kind. No other exercise-based program is designed specifically to prepare you to work with the client in pain using a biopsychosocial approach.
