Whether your patient’s maximum effort is lifting a baby or a barbell, chasing a toddler or crossing a finish line, the strategies to help them accomplish these activities symptom-free are similar.

Break down the task, then build it back up.

Learn how to create graded exposure strategies to prepare a path for your patient to return to functional and fitness challenges. ​​


Learning objectives

Upon completion of the course, participants will:

  1. Gain a framework applicable across patient populations and fitness types to prepare a path for a return to symptom-free activity.
  2. Begin to view themselves as capable of building intervention strategies to prepare for athletic demands that integrate the postural control and movement system inclusive of pelvic health considerations.
  3. Value abdominopelvic health and access to fitness of choice as components of whole-person care.



This online course is intended to equip physiotherapists specializing in the fields of Orthopaedics, Sports Medicine, and/or Pelvic Health with the necessary knowledge and skills to create graded exposure strategies for your patients to return to their functional and fitness challenges.
