Course Description:

Whether you want to treat the root cause of impairment faster, enhance your clinic’s services for neuro and ortho patients, or add personal value within a large organization, this program will get you where you want to go.

Built from one of the most trusted methodologies in neurological rehabilitation, the Neuro-Developmental Treatment Master Class will teach you today’s top NDT strategies for efficiently evaluating and treating a wide range of neurological and orthopedic injuries. And the results are incredible. Clinicians have seen countless patients – from sedentary, wheelchair bound patients to fit and active baby boomers – regain lost function and get their groove back using the techniques covered in this program.

Join Dr. Benjamin White as he shares a proven framework for rehabilitation that combines today’s best NDT strategies with innovative dual task interventions, constraint-induced movement techniques, taping, exercise, and other high-yield interventions.

If you’re chasing symptoms without getting to the “why” of your patients’ impairment, you’re losing time, money and referrals. This course is your path to delivering results for your patients.
