Gain The Tools You Need To Manage And Improve Your Arthritis Pain For The Rest Of Your Life

My courses are broken up into a series of educational discussions and active participation labs. In the discussions, you will learn the science behind knee and hip arthritis, movement patterns and retraining, and pain science, in clear and easily understandable terms. In the labs you will put that knowledge into action by performing the exercises you need to do to feel better. All sessions are followed by live Q&A to ensure you understand the material. The better you understand your body, the better you will feel.
