Evaluating and Treating Upper Extremity Injuries in Gymnasts was the best course I've taken on evaluating and treating upper extremity injuries!!

This course provides tons of great information, explanations, and PRACTICAL skills that can be used directly in the clinic.

There are lots of great demonstrations and downloadable handouts, templates, and powerpoint slides throughout the entire course.

As a new graduate, it can be really tough to find courses that help give a full picture of how to work with some of t these tough injuries.

After taking this course, I feel way more knowledgable and confident to handle injuries gymnasts face like shoulder instability, labral issues, elbow OCD, and wrist problems.

I'm looking forward to applying these new techniques and skills not only in the physical therapy clinic I work in but also with the athletes I work with in a gymnastics gym!

These concepts, evaluation techniques, and interventions can be applied to all sports and patients.

I would highly recommend this course for any one for works with UE injuries! AWESOME content!!

As a collegiate gymnast, I'm SO grateful for Dave's rehab programs.

In my senior year of high school, I tore my labrum doing a Tkachev on bars. I went through a full year of college, but I was still having a lot of pain raising my arm and I couldn't compete bars or vault because of it.

The summer after my freshman year, I had a biceps tenodesis and labral repair surgery. I went to see Dave after for my rehab and knew he would do a great job. I knew I only had a summer to get back in shape before going back to UNH.

We started with basic stretching, got my full range back, and then built up my strength. We slowly built up to much more challenging exercises, which were in the clinic and a full home program.

After the summer and going into my Sophomore year of college, my shoulder was progressing amazingly. Upon going to school, Dave gave me a packet of exercises I should continue to be doing and following up with me while at school.

I was able to get back into vault and bars, and I am super happy and thankful that Dave was able to get me there!

How Much Does Evaluation And Treatment Of
Upper Extremity Injuries In Gymnastics Cost?

I have easily spent over $10,000 on spine courses, books, research articles, and mentoring. I have also spent endless hours at weekend courses learning new concepts. It's crazy how many hours some educational companies require to learn about lower back pain.

I wanted to take all the headaches out of continuing education, including the massive money and time commitment. I firmly live by a "people over profits" mentality, and I wanted people to be able to access all the information right from their couch, whenever it best fit their schedule. No more lost weekends, staying in hotels, and emptying your bank account to learn.

That's why I am selling the course for only $249

I wanted to get the information to as many people as possible, so I tried to cut down the cost of access as much as possible. I know how expensive and time consuming continuing education can be, and I firmly believe in a 'people over profits' mentality, so my hope is by keeping the price low people will be able to make the investment.
