Clinical Management of the Fitness Athlete: Advanced Concepts

Certification in the Clinical Management of the Fitness Athlete


Cert-CMFA gives you the tools to incorporate load management and strengthening principles with every patient you service in the outpatient setting. The combination of evidence-based lectures, relevant literature reviews, and video analysis of proper movement performance, takes your targeted exercise prescription skills to a completely different level. The future of physical therapy is moving away from mat exercises and Theraband to leverage top quality strength and conditioning principles with an aim of building more resilient and robust patients. Become a part of this revolution with the Cert-CMFA.
