Anthony Carey is a very interesting man to listen to and seems to know a lot about working with clients. Pretty solid course. Wish it wasn't as short as it was.

Great info about the science of pain & how to move a client with chronic pain safely & gently to a place of activity that works for them without reinforcing pain from an emotional/psychological source.
