Speed up recovery after joint replacement using an innovative approach to movement. Take a deeper look at the relationship of the femur and pelvis and how they move relative to one another. Apply this understanding to create the movement needed for a better and faster response. Learn how to use hand and foot driven movements to train the knees and hips. This course will cover how to use body positioning, relative joint motions, and progressive exercises to get the results your clients want. 



1)  Explain common problems that lead to knee and hip replacement.

2)  Determine the difference between real and relative bone motion.

3)  Apply knowledge of relative motion to create personalized exercises that speed recovery.

4)  Take advantage of buoyancy and resistance to quickly improve mobility and strength.
