Anyone wanting to physically prepare for an upcoming abdominal surgery (laparoscopic or full incision). Though beneficial for any abdominal surgery, we specifically see clients for these procedures:
Over 3 hours of video education and instruction
Step-by-step instructions to prepare the core muscles for your surgery
Realistic and effective post-op recovery plan
Downloadable exercises, stretches, and charts
Lifetime access to our online forum for personal support
6 weeks of access to complete the 4-week course
Course Objectives, Course Outline and Post test with certificate of completion to submit for CEU credits to your accreditation board.
Each week you have access to a series of videos that center around the focus of the week. The content is typically around 45-60 minutes/week. You will watch the videos, take notes and pactice exercises or stretches as instructed. You can review any videos you watch, but our program is set up in a way that you don't need to rewatch it to do the instructed work.
Most weeks will include downloadable and printable handouts. These include assessments that track how your symptoms improve, charts to keep you on track, weekly rehab plans, and the exercises or stretches reviewed in the video. These are yours to keep even after the program ends.
After you've finished the videos, you simply implement what you have learned into your daily routine over the next week. Don't worry, all of our rehab exercises are functional - they will seamlessly integrate into what you are already doing, such as sitting, bending, reaching, lifting, etc. And if you have questions along the way, you can reach out to our Core Rehab Specialists™ through the online forum.
After a week, your body is ready for the next step and you will receive access to more content with a new focus of the week. This timed progression is intentional because this is physical therapy and your body needs time to master each concept. Each new training module builds on the previous content.
Don't worry, as professionals you are given full access to the content for a full 8 weeks, even though we recommend you go through the material as a client week by week when possible.
We train more than 8 different professions in over 20 countries, which makes it very difficult to maintain accreditation with the various agencies. We have found that the majority of accreditation bodies will accept courses for credits when the course content is within the scope of practice of that practitioner, and the course outline, objectives, and proof of completion has been provided. We provide the information about our courses and the instructors needed, as well as adequate testing with a certificate of completion. We ask for each practitioner to submit the required content to their credentialing agencies for credits.
