Rebel PT Roadmap Course
You may have already tried changing jobs, talked to your manager, or read books or blog posts on how to overcome the pit of your stomach feeling of not liking what you are doing everyday. It just feels hopeless.
The first thing you need to know is that it is ok to not want to be in full time patient care or to be seeing only a very specific type of patient. It doesn’t mean you are not meant to be a physical therapist or that you wasted your education. It actually means that you are about to embark on something spectacular.
Musculoskeletal Self-Screen: Getting and Keeping the Ideal Patient
Imagine if patients knew when to come into the clinic before experiencing pain or an injury. Could you imagine seeing more patients for wellness instead of just chronic pain and post-op care?
What if your patients were directed to you right away at the first onset of pain, rather than waiting months? What if you had something meaningful to give patients at health fairs and community talks that actually directed the type of patients you want into your care?
Return to Sport and Discharge Testing
When can I fully return to my activity? It's a simple question with a complex answer. Could you imagine knowing how to make the return-to-activity decision confidently and concretely so the patient, parent, and physician all agree?
You can dramatically impact your patients' health and reduce reinjury rates by making evidence-based discharge and return-to-sport decisions. There is no guesswork; there is a data-driven decision. This course will lay the foundation to help you develop a scientific decision-making process, select evidence-based tests, and apply them to patient care.
I'm a physical therapist, athletic trainer, strength and conditioning coach, and Associate Professor in the Doctor of Physical Therapy Program at the University of Evansville.
As a performance systems consultant with all major professional sports and the military, my passion is teaching athletes how to elevate their game to the next level.
Additionally, I help rehabilitation and performance professionals maximize their client’s physical potential by teaching them how to live a fully engaged life, systematic thinking, testing and interventions so that they and their clients can remain healthy, fit, and well.More About Me

Former NFL Head Strength & Conditioning Coach, World Champion Indianapolis Colts
"In life there are people that you know you can go to that can solve problems, offer wisdom, expertise, and make the complicated simple. Through my 25 years of coaching, 17 in the NFL, consulting and implementing systems across youth, college and pro sports I’ve been fortunate to have a few of those people. I am honored to say that Phil Plisky is one of those guys. Phil has an easy to understand brilliance and way of working with people that both puts them at ease and challenges you to look at multiple perspectives. When it comes to testing, assessments, return to play, injury reduction, and improving athletes health and efficiency there are few I trust as much as Phil. "
