A 9 Day Program linking Prague School to Athletic Development.
Taught in three 3 Day Courses separated by a series of 1 day Bridge the Gap programs.
Read about the course offerings below, then check out Dr. Liebenson’s course schedule to find the course(s) you want in a city near you.
These are interactive, problem-solving workshops. You can start at any point in the program (since they are divided up topically.

Learn how to efficiently –
What Can You Expect to Learn?
The PS2AD series is an ideal prep for changing one’s paradigm from –
Goal: to learn how to efficiently focus on reversible functional pathologies of the motor system (i.e. key painless dysfunctions)
At the end of the day it takes passion, study & experience to learn how to be STRONG in this model. As Pavel Tsatsouline says “You are strong when you can make the hard easy”. Therefore it is all about EFFICIENCY. That is what we teach.
Part A - Isometric Torso Stability
“Proximal stability for distal mobility”
Assessment of Faulty Movement Patterns & Integrated Core Training
Part B - Lower & Upper Quarter Kinetic Chain
Rehabilitation of the Athlete: From the Ground Up
The Continuum of Care: From the Head to the Toe
Video overview with testimonials of how Dr Liebenson’s programs can transform your practice.
Part C – Sensory Afferent Re-sets of Janda & Lewit’s Mobilizations in the Rehabilitation of the Locomotor System
- Joint by joint approach starting from the ground up (from MTPs to TMJ)
- The role of joint dysfunction in faulty movement patterns
- Sensory-Motor stimulation starting from the sole of the foot
- Synergist substitution & relative tightness: are tight traps a key link or trap?
- Irradiation & potentiation: prioritizing movement preps for efficiency
- Acc. to Gray Cook does a stiff area on passive & active testing always require mobilization?
- How manual therapists & trainers can work together in athlete-centered management
- Post-isometric relaxation methods for inhibition of tight muscles & joint mobilization
- Traction, springing & joint oscillations
- Fascial release according to Lewit
- Exteroceptive therapy
- Scars as sabateurs
- The fibular head & tight hamstrings
- The painful coccyx post-partem pain
- The pelvic floor & sacrotuberous ligament
- Psoas & QL in trunk rotation dysfunction
- Respiratory & visual synkinesis
- Ideal manipulative therapy methods for acute care or the elderly
- Distinguishing neuromuscular from connective tissue sources of hypertonus
- Dizzyness & post-concussion syndrome
- TMJ, speech & eye movements
- Manual traction procedures for hip, lumbar spine, shoulder & cervical spine
- Forward drawn posture – lumbo-dorsal fascia, fibular head & gluteal inhibition
- Integrating Manipulation & Exercise
Bridge the Gap (BTG) Courses – One Day updates linking each course
- Review the concepts & implementation of the A,B & C programs
- While the 3 day workshops cover the Science & Rationale or WHY of the series along with the craft, skill, methods or WHAT. The BTG programs emphasize HOW to integrate the course work in different environments.
