Why Rehab to Fitness?

In this short interview, we get to know Dr. Teter and hear a little bit about why he developed the Rehab to Fitness course and how it “bridges the gap” between rehabilitation and optimal performance.

We discuss using exercise as medicine and the true definition of fitness.  We also discuss why being able to understand and apply basic principles of fitness is an essential component of next-level patient care for any musculoskeletal practitioner.
