CTB Self Care, Rehabilition and Assessments (eCourse)


PLEASE NOTE: This course is an asynchronous (virtual) course and is a requirement for CTBP certification. You will study at your own pace and will complete once you pass the final quiz with a 70% or higher grade. This course is completely remote, however students who take this virtual class will be able to join zoom Q&A sessions with instructors where they can get individualized feedback. Students retain access to the material, so this online course will serve as a permanent resource.

Some familiarity with functional anatomy and the CTB system is recommended. This can be achieved via the CTB Membership or our CTB Fundamentals or Functional Anatomy online courses.

Upon successful completion of this course and quizzes, students will be awarded a certificate documenting 9 hours of NCBTMB approved CE credit (application pending).

This course covers tools and techniques to support the client in achieving and maintaining full recovery from their pain condition. CTB analyzes not only the muscular relationships that cause pain, but also the functional patterns and perpetuating factors that will make the pain come back unless corrected.

The principles of CTB are a profoundly useful guide not only for treatment, but for self care, yoga practice and corrective exercise as well, including movement disciplines such as Pilates, Gyrotonic, dance and martial arts. We show the use of the Mighty Body Band, Muscle Liberator, EPS and other tools to support the client in achieving and maintaining a full recovery.

Any movement or stretching discipline can serve as an illuminating assessment if the observer is equipped with the knowledge contained in CTB. We show specific examples of using the concepts to analyze pain issues during corrective exercise and yoga poses. Rather than simply avoiding poses and movements that hurt, clients can be empowered to discover the true cause of their pain and resolve it within the same scenarios that bring it out.

CTB practitioners are trained to serve as a guide and coach throughout the treatment and rehab life cycle. We show examples of using CTB concepts and teaching clients to use tools, contract/relax and muscle knowledge during their rehabilitation work.
