30-minutes live online

  • 1-on-1 post-course mentorship session

In Person: 12 Hours

We will move through the in-person course using clinical case scenarios generated from real patients with real outcomes. Each clinical case scenario will feature practical and applied content, unique skills, and principles of rehabilitation for the unique patient presentation.

Each clinical case scenario will highlight primary principles of clinical reasoning:

  • DDx and identifying the most probable pathoanatomical, functional and pathophysiological diagnosis.
  • Identify provocative and pain-free patterns to establish optimal entry points for building movement competency and quality, load tolerance, and capacity.
  • Backdoor rehab to optimize everything - activation, and engagement of all that is available to optimize health habits so you and your patients stop swimming upstream.
  • Training Movement and Motor Control – Make the general specific and specific general (hint: it’s not about the exercise)
  • Know when to leverage manual therapy for optimal outcomes and when it may be irrelevant.
  • Managing expectations, outcomes, and prognosis.

Each clinical case scenario will highlight specific skills – manual techniques, exercise applications for motor control, stability, strength, stamina, load tolerance, and/or functional capacity.

Your Instructor

Dr Michael Maxwell

Dr. Michael Maxwell has been a fitness, health, exercise rehabilitation and manual therapy nerd since 1998. As a personal trainer, strength and conditioning coach, kinesiologist, and Chiropractor, he has sought out key mentors, courses, and conferences to accelerate the acquisition of knowledge and skills necessary to help his clients and patients.

Frustrated by the lack of practical knowledge and skills provided in his Exercise Science undergraduate degree, and inspired by the extra-curricular conferences and courses he had previously attended, Dr. Maxwell began facilitating workshops and seminars that featured practical, hands-on content, taught by industry leaders. This is what led to the formation of Somatic Senses Education. Since 2003, Dr. Maxwell has organized well over 250 continuing education courses throughout Canada featuring industry leaders such as Lorimer Moseley, Donald Murphy, Stuart McGill, Pavel Kolar, and the outstanding Prague School Physios, Clayton Skaggs, Brett Winchester, Michael Shacklock, Dale Buchberger, Jack Miller, Clare Frank, Robert Lardner, Mark Finch, Charlie Weingroff, and many more! His mission is simple: provide evidence-informed, practical, and world-class continuing education featuring industry-leading clinicians, educators, and researchers, with the ultimate goal of improving the standards of patient care!
