The materials in this course are only accessible by students who are enrolled in The ISM Series .
I am Paul Rouleau. One of the assistants for ISM Reston. I recently became certified in ISM after completing the Denver series in 2018. I graduated from the University of Saskatchewan in 1994 and moved to Florida and never left. I completed my COMT and FAAOMPT in 2005. I have been in a busy private practice since 2005. I am a lifelong PT student as I am always learning from courses, books, clients and most recently from Diane. I was drawn to the ISM series after watching one of Diane’s videos and was blown away by her assessment of an intracranial torsion. I had never heard of such a thing and I was immediately hooked. ” You can not treat what you can’t find” and if you find it do you need to treat it? This is truly an integrated model. It integrates all of the systems of the body (articular, myofascial, visceral, neural) as well as treatment approaches ( NAIOMT, IPA, Barral, Cyriax, Mckenzie, Mulligan etc…) that allows for efficient treatment of complicated clients. I look forward to meeting you in Reston
The course materials are easy to follow and provides a great overview of the material we will cover in the workshop days. The quizzes made sure I was meeting my learning objectives in a stress free way. Can’t wait for the workshop!
Such an amazing course! Loaded with great info and pushing clinicians to the next level of critical thinking. I really enjoyed the videos, anatomical explanations and case studies. The course made me spend a lot of time with my anatomy textbook again and also look at the atlas of dissections that I haven’t opened up in the last year.
Content is amazing. I have already figured out stuff I was getting confused by before, and getting better results with patients. Thankfully I have a treatment technique that has been correcting things without me knowing exactly what I was doing. But this content so far has increased my accuracy, and made my homework far more specific to the problem. I can’t wait for the physical course.
The anatomy aspect, although usually my strong point, was my weakest aspect in the testing. But as I get to feel patients and how things behave it makes more sense, and I can visualise it better. My practice so far has been more focused on muscles, and muscle vectors rather than checking joint vectors as much.
Every time I watch these videos I learn something new. There really isn’t another learning platform out there that even comes close. Thank you for designing such a great way to teach all types of learners. You truly have something for everyone.
Very much looking forward to learning the ISM and how it contributes to skills as a women’s health Physiotherapist. I want to be able to look beyond the pelvic floor and gain a more holistic approach.
Thank you so much for putting this together, Diane! Being able to watch and listen to the same videos over and over again really helps to learn the material at a deeper level. It feels just like being in a course with you!
Thank you for so wonderful information. I enjoyed this module.
What a great way to go back over the material and revise and refresh the knowledge and skills that I’ve been working with.
A brilliant resource. Now onto Part 2!
Great information! I am super excited for the class to get my hands on these techniques!
Wow! my brain is spinning but in a good way! Thanks for the fantastic information. Can’t wait to put it together in person…
Excellent overview and will be a continual valuable reference. Thank you.
Enlightening! Inspiring! Energizing!
I absolutely LOVED this course! Diane is so captivating to listen to and makes everything seem so simple. Because of her simple and clear explanations, I have already been able to start applying her techniques into my caseload. I am so excited for the on-site learning that will occur. Thank you!
I could learn a lot thing because there are a lot of evidence and clinical experience in this course!! Specially, case study is very helpful for me to understand it. Thank you.
It was amazing that I can learn a lot from this part 1 prep course before the in-class course starts!
this course is a good walk through things we as PTs know, things we may have forgotten, things we might need to forget and things to consider and learn anew.
I vacillated between feeling like my typical treatment was incredibly imprecise, to realizing that my instincts were spot on.
I so look forward to the next 6 months of learning together!
The prep work was manageable. It is a lot, compared to other courses I have taken, but it’s very do-able. I enjoyed watching the videos and seeing Diane in her element. It definitely got me excited about the upcoming course! For the case histories, I learn best by seeing a completed worksheet, before trying to fill one out myself. And one suggestion re the quizzes – upon successful completion of a quiz (> 70%), it would be nice to see the correct answers for the questions I got wrong. Definitely helps me learn better, without going back through the textbook and all video segments to try and locate the right answers.
I absolutely loved this course. I work a lot with pelvic floor issues, and this approach is what I have been missing. Can’t wait for more!
I keep getting more and more out of the series as I review the materials. Thanks for putting it together in such a useful format.
My purpose for taking the ISM course was to improve my orthopedic testing skills and decrease the number of patient visits by improving efficiency and efficacy. I’m getting 50-80% improvements in my woman’s health patients in 2-4 visits. That’s phenomenal.
Love the endless little videos.
I really enjoyed this format, you can see the changes that are created using this model – which is exciting and inspiring!
I found the case studies and analysis of different vectors most helpful. Nice to be able to go back and watch again for future reference.
So much great information to learn and absorb in the online modules. I look forward to exploring it all further and deepening my understanding in the live course together. Thank you so much.
I am really digging this online learning module and the questions. I wish wew had this sooner but I know the future classes will benefit. Thank you for reinvesting your time and energy and of course $$$ for a better product for the future.
