Attending the KIME Bulletproof Summit was as much of a game changing experience as any continuing education I’ve had throughout my career.

 

The innovative and scientifically based process that goes into programming and planning is unparalleled in today’s traditional physical therapy models.

 

In a culture of quick and generic treatments, the KIME philosophy stands apart as a means to not only regain basic function but to restore the client to the level that allows them to soar again.

  • MOTION Achieve enough MOTION to allow fluid movement.
  • STRENGTH Develop a STRENGTH foundation to allow for controlled movement, coordination, and establish motor control of appropriate patterns.
  • SPEED Build velocity on the way to gain SPEED. Maximize POWER production through the kinetic chain.
  • PERFORM Begin drills for sports from predictable to reactive patterns, then build endurance. Return to play and PERFORM better than ever.

KIME Manual Therapy

Get Strong. Move Free.

Improve patient outcomes and expand your knowledge of manual therapy techniques with KIME’s exclusive Manual Therapy Course in El Dorado Hills, California April 17th, 2021.

Register below.

This course utilizes evidence-based instruction of advanced manual therapy skills with an intentional focus to allow for improved movement. 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.

Monty Merrill Physical Therapist

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

 

I recently attended the Bulletproof Summit put on by KIME Performance Physical Therapy. Our facility brought 7 trainers down to participate. This event was awesome. It was a perfect blend of scientific explanation, hands on application, competition, and fun.

 

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!
