What Others Are Saying
Complete game changer in the space of rehab and physical therapy. ICE’s passion for being top notch clinicians and helping others attain this is very apparent. I went into this class having rarely used cervical manipulation in my practice, but now have complete confidence in not only using them, but knowing when it is appropriate. I would recommend this course to anyone who wants to be challenged and engaged in our profession.
The Extremity Management course was my first experience with ICE. As a clinician that has practiced for 20+ years, I was pleased with the pace of the course, knowledge base of the instructors, and all of the clinical Pearls shared throughout the course. I appreciate the drive for excellence in the profession.
This is my first thrust class in 15 years. This course was excellent to learn new techniques, improve my current skill set, but most importantly for me, challenged me to think differently and to think about previously learned treatment techniques that were learned from the “gurus”. As a physical therapist for almost 26 years, this course fulfilled my need for lifelong learning. Thank you!
The Lumbar Management course is so well rounded. After taking it, I feel so much more confident with my lumbar spine examination, clinical reasoning, manual therapy skills, but also on progressing patients through a full plan of care from beginning with symptom management to ending with building functional strength.
