THE ECLECTIC APPROACH ONLINE
"Basically, I felt like before the course, I had tried to perform your system and techniques but usually wasn’t too successful because I didn’t fully understand the minor details (hand placements, sets/reps, etc). I feel like now this week I have been able to “fully unleash” the system if that makes sense. I have had about 5 major breakthroughs this week in either new patients or existing ones that I was having trouble week in 2.5 days. I just feel much more confident with it."

worth 11.5 CEUs
Learn how to maximize the effect of ANY manual therapy treatment
Make all hands on treatments pain free
Easy to learn and implement assessments based on Clinical Practice Patterns
"A must for outpatient orthopedic clinicians
Treatment of the whole individual is crucial especially in trying to drive long term life style changes individuals vs short term fixes through manual therapy and other passive care alone. This seminar definitely educates clinicians on the target principles but also helps them apply them to clinical practice through helpful examples.
As a busy clinician, business owner and father I appreciated how the lecture was broken up into the 12 modules so I could do it over time with good breaking points. "
Andy McLlarky PT
worth 6.5 CEUs
Learn the "soft skills" not taught in school or other seminars
breathing/mindfulness, sleep/recovery, movement/exercise, pain science, and nutrition are all covered
"Bundle with the certification - Great value!
This online course on BFR was perfect. Concise information and easy to digest. Dr. Coffey is very passionate about the subject and it’s impact on patients.
What I love most was the ability to bundle the ERS cuffs, Doppler, and CertMST certification with the course. It’s hard to get to a live course so this enables me to learn at my own pace and schedule! What a brilliant idea! Now I have everything I need to start using with my patients and it’s the best bargain I’ve found."

The Origins of the Eclectic Approach
After taking over 100 seminars in the first 10 years of my career, I came to a point where clashing ideas and schools of thought needed cohesion. I felt like I needed simplicity over complexity, and systems over techniques. Even as a classically trained Orthopaedic Manual Therapy Fellow, I realized that less was more and to really help someone recover meant to empower them, not fix them.
After taking a seminar, do you notice?
Your outcomes improve for a month or so
The novelty wears off after a while and you need new tools, or a series of tough cases make you want more
Eventually you fall into your old habits and search for the next best flashy tool for your toolbox
You feel like if you just knew a bit more about manipulation, or IASTM, or dry needling, or breathing techniques, or pelvic floor, etc that your success rates would sky rocket?
The 5 E's of The Eclectic Approach
The Eclectic Approach draws on from many sources, takes the best from different approaches and combines them into an effective system any clinician can use, no matter their experience level
Evidence/Science based mechanisms and clinical reasoning are the focus. You can't learn experience, but you can learn to cater to patient's expectations, and empower patients with Pain Science and homework, taking the focus off of passive techniques
Our techniques integrate into your existing practice. We show you how to make any of your top techniques, and make them pain free. It doesn't matter if it's soft tissue work, IASTM, neurodynamics, spinal manipulation/mobilization or general/targeted exercises. How much more effective would your techniques be and the patient compliance improve if everything was pain free?
The Eclectic Approach's main emphasis is on empowering the patient with Pain Science Education, along with self assessments and home exercise programs. Dosage and repetition is key to see the patient as little as possible. You actually get busier the less you see patients.
What? Manual/Physical Therapy - easy? In the same sentence? Forget about the minutiae of learning an entire commercial model's suggested system. They have value but does learning the entire system and using it exactly as described greatly improve your success? Perhaps, but there are diminishing returns for the amount of time you invest versus the amount of success you have. Evaluation and Treatment should be reliable and EASY is a big part of that. Trust me, coming from a Fellowship trained OMPT with almost 20 years of experience in teaching at 3 different PT schools and mentoring tons of clinicians of different levels, complexity is NOT the way to success.
