Therapists, ask your integration questions to Dr. Jason St.Clair. Trainers, ask all the questions you wish you could ask a PT for those tricky clients.
Dr. Jason St Clair is the founder and owner of RISE Rehab. He believes strongly that the ultimate goal of physical therapy should be to get people quickly and safely out of the medical system and back to the performance they desire. His motivation to create a model of care that respects his belief system led him to dedicate the past 5 years seeking advanced education and obtaining his Board Certified Orthopedic Clinical Specialist as well as a Fellowship in Orthopedic Manual Physical Therapy (FAAOMPT). This dedication to his training has given him the ability to clearly identify the current source of one’s pain or primary limitations leading to the inability to perform to their desired level. Being able to quickly identify these factors allows him to look more broadly and to understand each individual’s unique situation and contributing factors that have led them to seek out his care. Of equal importance, Dr. St Clair believes that every individual must take an active role in the planning and goal setting process, which will enable them to control their situation through his professional guidance.
Jason will be supporting the community via Slack and helping to answer questions that help to bridge the gap for practitioners who use manual therapy techniques in their practice. He is well versed in all of the content so he can speak to any additional questions as well. If you are a trainer this will give you a lens into the manual approach and allow you to strategize on some self care techniques you may suggest to your clients.
