KIME IS THE FOCUSED ENERGY WHERE MIND, BODY AND SPIRIT MEET WITH INTENT
WE HAVE BUILT A METHODOLOGY AND FRAMEWORK THAT CONSISTENTLY YIELDS
OUTSTANDING RESULTS

Our evidence based courses are proven in clinical care to take clients from A to Z in their movement progression. We believe in a movement continuum that progresses from PAIN and advances to PERFORMANCE. No random exercises with little purpose here. We believe in
evaluating individuals, identifying limiting factors, meeting them at their level, and building them up to their desired level.

We believe there are specific exercise progressions that work 80% of the time. The master clinician is responsible to identify when the 80% isn’t working and needs to make a modification.

Becoming a Master Clinician is about knowing WHEN TO DO WHAT. It isn’t which exercise, which hands on technique, or which modality to use. It’s about when to use a specific intervention and understanding why. This is what we do, this is what we teach.

Level-up your understanding of effective exercise interventions and BUILD YOUR OWN INDIVIDUALIZED TRAINING PLAN to fit your goals.

LEARN

Lets face it, school doesn’t prepare you for practice. Duplicating protocols or using templates are great resources that quickly help clinicians put techniques in a live environment or clinical setting. Understanding the why behind them elevates your practice. The complicated becomes clear. As you gain clarity your treatment progressions become consistent, your results become anticipated, and you become a Master Clinician in your area of expertise.

MOVE

To learn, the body must fail. To grow, the body must struggle. We believe to understand the body’s adaptive responses to differing techniques and exercise progressions clinicians must execute the movements.
This is the “learn by doing” approach where determining your own limitations allows you to skillfully identify the limiting factors for patients making you a remarkable clinician and an extraordinary coach.

CONNECT

You took an amazing course, now what? The art is to practice and implement what you learned live, in your own clinical environment. That’s what KIMEU communities is all about.
Bring your questions, bring your cases, bring your knowledge to a group of instructors and peers to openly discuss the best solution at the right time in real time.

LIVE COURSE

Expand your influence. Become a Master Clinician.

Live Course – April 2nd, 2022

KIME Hands on Strategies

Get Strong. Move Free.

Improve patient outcomes and expand your knowledge of advanced manual therapy techniques with KIME’s exclusive Hands on Strategies for Manual Therapy in the Sacramento area at one of our clinics.

CEU approved: PT ATC NSCA

 

A full day of applying advanced therapist’s proven methods of manual therapy across the entire body using the therapists hands and tools. Relieving pain, improving motion, and facilitating the transition to movement retraining. Coursework will focus on reason-based development of individualized examinations aimed at patient/client classification into: management of an initial diagnosis, progression to a specific neurophysiological, fascial, and joint by joint movement examination, symptom/intervention/rule-based classification groupings, or referral to another health-care provider. Procedural interventions will include education, manual therapy techniques (including manipulation), and individualized neuromuscular rehabilitation prescription, with the goal of restoring normal function and preventing disability.

 

This is a CEU approved course from CPTA and will be 8-hours. We will provide a pre-course video of 3-hours to be reviewed ahead of time so we can focus on labs and technic on the day of the course.

KIME Speed + Agility + Plyometrics

Speed & Agility Evolved.

We’ll break down the progression of speed & agility skills, what drills to use and when, and how to get the best results from your athletes and clients.  This serves as a bridge from rehab to performance. This event will be hosted in the Sacramento area at one of our clinics.

CEU approved: PT ATC NSCA

This course is designed to teach and breakdown the progression of speed & agility skills, what drills to use and when, and how to get the best results from your athletes and clients.

These courses are invaluable linking traditional physical therapy, training, performance and wellness into a well-integrated package that is immediately usable in daily clinical practice. THIS IS NOT JUST FOR SPORTS MEDICINE.

The principles are solid, applying to everyday people, work injuries and geriatrics. Tony and his group are dynamic presenters. The course is like going to camp, versus a classroom.

Monty Merrill Physical Therapist

I have been a fitness trainer for over 20 years… Continuing education is a vital part of what keeps my mind fresh and my clients continuing to progress. What I look for is information that is progressive, scientific, and scalable.

By the end of the weekend, we were all fired up over the information and couldn’t wait to plug it right into our programming. I have attended a lot of different programs. This program was by far one of the most inclusive, applicable, and enjoyable that I have been to. If you have a chance to attend a KIME event, I highly recommend it!
