“Strong Clinicians Build Strong Patients”
-Dr. Joe Camoratto, DPT, PT, CF-L1

Join the waitlist for our next cohort

At Across The Continuum, we are on a mission to teach the foundations of intelligent programming and the essentials of coaching to physical therapists, and clinicians of all backgrounds. Through our physical therapy ceu courses we give clinicians the tools, knowledge, and confidence to build the most active patient population yet.

What’s The Problem With Physical Therapy As Is?

The rehab world is missing the integration of exercise prescription, fitness coaching, and injury management in the current plans of care.

Patients have been under-dosed in activity for too long.

Strength training should be used as a primary tool for improving patient health and physical confidence. This starts with improving clinician confidence in their fundamental exercise prescription knowledge.

Masters Woman Athlete Speaking To CJ

Many Physical Therapists & Clinicians Are Unsure Of:

  • Where to go with patients that are not ready to return to their prior training level but no longer have pain
  • How to effectively rehabilitate patients who perform above ADLs and need more intense intervention than inactive or sedentary population
  • Where to start learning programming
  • How to modify activity due to fatigue or symptoms/pain
  • How to progress/regress/lateralize training to meet patient goals
  • Linking rehab to performance/training, or sport into rehab
  • Working with and how to intervene on “high-level” patients or athletes

You don’t need to be a “sports clinician” to effectively manage athletes.

If you are tired of giving out the same 3 sets of 10 exercises to each patient, then our courses are right for you. 

Don’t just do mediocre exercise programming to help people get out of pain, provide patients with the absolute most bang for their buck with more specific and intelligently prescribed exercise that will come with secondary benefits and the ability to transfer over into that self management program in the gym and in real life.
