The most in-demand
professionals know when
to treat and when to refer out

There’s a fine balance and it can be really difficult to know where to draw the line.

Being able to identify when it’s time to refer your patient to another specialist is a skill in itself. 

Recognizing when to make that referral is vital to positive patient outcomes.

Having the confidence and expertise to understand when there is hope to treat functionally versus when you need supplemental strategies is the key to solving some of your most chronic and difficult cases.

Learn how to guide your patient through the different options available to them and keep surgery, injections or orthotics as the absolute last resort.
