The Course

The Hip: An Integrated Approach to Manual Therapy & Rehab

You won't find a more complete approach to the hip. From the brain of Dr Michael Maxwell, the doc who brought us one of the most complete shoulder courses available, comes a brand new course, integrated the latest techniques and evidence around manual therapy and rehab of the hip.

The Delivery

The course will be held 3 hours per day, after ski time is over (of course), Thursday-Sunday. On Sunday, we'll have the course first thing in the morning so that we can hit the road if needed.

The Mountain

Big White is one of Canada's premier family-friendly ski resorts. Boasting a huge amount of terrain for beginners, intermediates, and experts alike, Big White is a destination for the full family from Toddler to Grandma. Find out What Makes Big White So Special

The Location

The Course will take place at The Inn at Big White, located centrally in Big White Village within walking distance to everything.

The Right Time: Spring Break!

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!

With 119 trails, 7,355 acres of terrain, and 25 feet of average snowfall, Big White is the perfect location for the whole family.
