The Diagnosis Foundation President and senior staff will be doing a lecture tour in Italy the middle two weeks of July.  For those who have completed the online or pre-recorded courses on muscle strength testing, they will also be available for certification exams.

Therapists in Italy represent one of the largest groups supporting the Diagnosis Foundation.  We’re looking forward to meeting many of you face to face in our trip across the pond.  To make arrangements for a presentation, workshop or exam session, contact Info@DxFoundation.org.

Education Program Update

The Diagnosis Foundation’s strategic plan calls for initiating the College of Diagnosis educational program with courses that focus on one of the fundamental areas of human health.  Diagnosing biomechanical integrity and function is a major causal factor for one of the largest areas of human disability – joint pain and arthritis.  The discipline of muscle strength testing and restoration of balance has been shown to be beneficial in preventing and treating these conditions in a way that is well supported by the evidence and financially attractive for a sustainable health care system.

The DxF curriculum for this academic discipline continues to expand.  We currently have:

  • 900+ students that have completed DxF seminars or courses
  • 7 post-doctoral, continuing education courses are accredited for licensure renewal
  • 5 successful teleseminars/webinar hybrid courses have been held this past year
  • 14 seminar and pre-recorded courses are available through the DxF web site

Those interested in taking courses or contributing materials to future courses should contact: Info@DxFoundation.org
