Five Three-Hour Live-Stream Modules
Instructor Whitfield Reaves
We are repeating the three-hour courses taught in the early months of the COVID era last year. Each module covers a specific body area, and explores precise and clear diagnosis, assessment, and treatment of clinically important sports injury and pain syndromes. This is a great way to get introduced to this material if you are new. And as always, with our emphasis on repetition as a path to mastery, repeating will only make you stronger and wiser!
