Do challenging patients leave you with more questions than answers?

  • Are you exhausted from trying to figure out what to do when you can't help certain patients?
  • Do the answers elude you?
  • Does trying to figure them out take up too much of your time and energy?
  • Would you like to have more effective assessment and treatment options but don't know where to start?
  • Do you struggle to design an exercise progression for someone who has foot pain but their driver is in their hip?
  • Do you find it difficult to progress someone whose driver is in their foot but their symptoms are in their pelvic girdle?
  • Does your clinical reasoning suffer when your patient has multiple regions of their body involved?

I used to be you!

I have treated countless seemingly difficult patients over the years and helped them find answers to their painful experiences.

But it wasn’t always so straightforward.

There were many times I stood in front of a patient and thought to myself,

“What next?”

Not having the answers drove me to become obsessed with learning how to work with patients who were challenging for me. With the patients who had been seemingly everywhere and told me I was their last resort.

And then the game changed. I started to get results!

The method I use and the way I look at my patients sets me apart from other clinicians. I created this course because I wanted to share my expertise with you and show you my proven method for getting results!

JI M JERSEY

“I found Decoding the Complex Patient Course extremely valuable. I have been able to apply ideas from the course daily in the clinic. I became more confident in looking for the driver rather than going immediately to the area of pain. I appreciate Erica's passion and commitment to her patients, to the field of physical therapy, and her willingness to help me become a better clinician."


C.D


“The DCP course made me "take off my blinders" and not look just at the area that was painful, but what else could be causing or driving the pain.  I especially found the assessment movements extremely helpful and now include them in all of my assessments.  Also, I have tried some of the treatment techniques and have gotten some great results already!”

JI M JERSEY

"I have been a Physical Therapist for 30 years. I’ve taken a ton of continuing education over the course of my career. I’ve had a lot of frustration being taught by “gurus” who tell you that all of your patients will get better if you only use the magic tricks that they are selling you. I wish that I had found a mentor like Erica earlier in my career. New grads will find good sound reasoning to ground themselves in and long-term clinicians can use Erica’s clinical pearls to tweak their current treatments for even better outcomes."


J.B


“I appreciated how you are able to look at the whole person when assessing movement patterns. Although my specialty is pelvic health, I cannot treat pelvic pain without helping people modify their movement patterns. Most often the pelvic floor seems to be overworking because something else is under working or the coordination of muscle recruitment is less than ideal, and that is where your class gave me ideas to figure out those situations. I also appreciate the numerous case studies and the help with my own cases!”
