Recovery Considerations when Bridging the Gap from Rehab to Performance

Who is this course for?

The Recovery Considerations course is intended for health care practitioners as well as strength and conditioning professionals who are looking to better understand overall concepts of recovery during different phases of the Bridging the Gap from Rehab to Performance (BTG) model.

In this course you will learn about different aspects of recovery and specific tools and ideas for several phases of the BTG process. Specific ideas to foster recovery are discussed for the pain and inflammatory phases of healing, for the performance side of the model as well as how recovery can be used to modulate the autonomic nervous system.

As a therapist or strength coach…

You know recovery is important. But how does someone apply recovery concepts differently for someone who is in pain versus someone who is working on strength and power development? What tools can be used in the different phases of the BTG model to foster recovery and how can we use these tools to manipulate the autonomic nervous system? When are certain tools better to use during specific times in the BTG process? And how do we program for recovery appropriately when working with a client? We will answer all of these questions in this course.

Are you dealing with clients who are overtrained or under-recovered?

If so, this course will take you through bridging the gap from rehab to performance and discuss recovery as it relates to specific phases of the BTG process. Whether your client is in pain or is fully performing and needs help recovering, this course is for you
