I’m interested in learning the Pettibon Rehabilitation System, where do I start?

Brand new to Pettibon Rehabilitation or has it been a long time since your last Pettibon class? The Pettibon Institute recommends that you begin with the Online Courses.  They provide you with the foundation of the Pettibon Rehabilitation System and how it can be incorporated in with your technique.  These Online Courses are also prerequisites for some Live Instructor-Led Courses.

Ready to get started with Pettibon Rehabilitation or wanting to refresh with current procedure information? Then jump right into the online content. You get to pick where you start with these courses. The first three that are listed are highly recommended if you are taking the Rehab that Works live course.  The 5-Part Series Online Courses are designed to be taken in order Part 1, Part 2, etc., however you are welcome to take them in the order that best serves your needs.

The online courses have the luxury of time. Smaller chunks of content are presented in-depth in a steady progression going from 'the what' and 'why' to 'how.'

What kind of documentation is given for completing an online course?

When you complete an online post-test and evaluation form, we send you a Certificate of Completion.

What's the process for getting CE hours?

We send a monthly report of doctors who have successfully completed the online courses to the coordinator at Palmer College and PACE (Providers of Approved Continuing Education) at the Federation of Chiropractic Licensing Boards at the beginning of each month. The doctors' chiropractic regulatory boards are then informed by the CE providers. Not all boards accept online courses for CE hours and not all boards accept courses from Recognized PACE Providers. We have listed all the CE Re-licensure Requirements for the US and Canada so you can verify what your board accepts.  Hours in this report are calculated based on time spent to complete a course up to the amount available.

Some states and provinces require the doctor to submit the certificate of completion.  It is your responsibility to know the process with your state/province.  If you are responsible for submitting your hours, be sure to print out the certificate once you finish the evaluation at the end of each online course.  Licensed in more than one state or need assistance in a hurry outside of the monthly report? E-mail info@pettiboninstitute.org for assistance, there will be a minimum $35 filing fee per state/province.)

How are multimedia elements incorporated?

Fundamentals offers only a few audio and video clips. X-ray Procedures provides extensive audio clips of an instructor/Pettibon practitioner explaining how to set-up x-ray equipment; position patients; and take, mark, and measure x-rays. In Clinic Protocols & Home Care, more than three hours of video clips demonstrate 'the how' of testing, exams, using instruments and rehabilitation equipment, mobilizations, and more. The 5-Part Series takes all the original classes and chunks them into easy to follow and implement parts. They are full of audio, video clips, and PowerPoint material including tests.
