Back To Basics – 3M Strategy September 2018

Course Description:

Sometimes going back to the basics is what it takes to really grow your practice! This course is designed to review the basics of building your pelvic health practice. Whether you are an internal or externally-based pelvic health practitioner, the basic tools of assessment, screening for mechanical pain, and utilizing your patient resources fully will be reviewed and expanded upon in this course.  These are often the key building blocks that are missing in practice that can stop practitioners from getting to the next level.


The second half of this course (Sunday) will teach you how to position yourself in your current practice or community as a pelvic health practitioner, understanding and maximizing your referral sources.  There are FREE marketing resources offered upon completion.  You will be taught how to increase your revenues by 20% with practical strategies.  You are guaranteed to generate at least 2 new patients from this course.  You will also be taught how to improve your patient retention.



Upon completion of this course, the participant will understand:

  1. How to demonstrate to your colleagues/referral sources that pelvic health is the missing link to every orthopaedic practice
  2. How to measure your worth and talk up your value with your clinic owner
  3. How to get buy-in from other physiotherapists and health care providers
  4. How to generate better referral sources and attract new patients
